Nyeen was a litigator in New York City’s public-interest law firm, and she was also the first woman in the nation to successfully sue a president.
She won a $2.5 million verdict against the Trump administration for its travel ban and against the Department of Justice for its investigation into the 2016 presidential election.
Nyeen, a New York native, was one of a number of civil litigation lawyers who went on to win significant verdicts on behalf of individuals and businesses under the Trump Administration.
She was also one of only three people to represent the president in a criminal case in the Eastern District of Virginia.
The New York Times reported in October that Nyean was a key player in the effort to secure the resignation of the deputy attorney general, Rod Rosenstein.
She also represented former White House national security adviser Michael Flynn in a civil case against the US Government over the use of the word “nasty” during a February interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos.
In an interview with The New York Daily News on Friday, Nye said she was the first person to call in an FBI agent in a matter involving the president.
“I called in an agent and I called in a supervisor and I’ve never had that happen in my lifetime,” she said.
We have a very diverse workforce, which is why I think it’s important that the workforce is inclusive and respectful, she added.
When asked if she thought there was a way to stop the President from firing her, Nyaen said: “I think that’s one of the things that he is really good at.
He is very good at putting people in a position to succeed and he knows how to do it in a way that’s going to be productive and productive for everyone involved.”
In March 2017, Nyoen won a class-action lawsuit against the Office of Personnel Management over its use of an electronic database to screen job applicants for security clearance.
Former Attorney General Sally Yates resigned in February over her refusal to enforce the White House’s travel ban on people from seven Muslim-majority countries.
Trump also fired the head of the Office for Civil Rights, the civil rights division, over the agency’s decision to not defend his executive order barring Muslim-Americans from entering the US.
And Trump has sued three companies for allegedly discriminating against people because of their religious beliefs, the most recent in January 2018.
