‘America is better than this’: Hundreds protest to protect Mueller probe

US Attorney General Jeff Sessions, said he was resigning at the request of US President Donald Trump on Nov 7 2018

US Attorney General Jeff Sessions, said he was resigning at the request of US President Donald Trump on Nov 7 2018

The event was part of nationwide protests organized in response to recent shakeups in the administration.

What's more, as a CNN contributor and at other times, he has trashed the Mueller investigation that he will now be overseeing.

People held aloft their cell phones during the rally.

President Donald Trump listens to a question during a news conference in the East Room of the White House, Nov. 7, 2018, in Washington. The other one was, reportedly, vice president. Though Sessions was an early and prominent campaign backer of Trump, his departure letter lacked effusive praise for the president and made clear the resignation came "at your request".

"There was interference by the Russians into the election, but that was not collusion with the campaign", Whitaker said on "The Wilkow Majority". - Donald Trump just crossed a red line, violating the independence of the investigation pursuing criminal charges in the Trump-Russia scandal and cover-up.

"I think [Trump] needs to be reminded that he represents the people, and that the attorney general is not just his butler-boy who he can just fire and hire", Raghav said.

"According to the chain of command, (Rosenstein) should be the attorney general", Gorton said.

Some senior Republicans, such as former presidential candidate and Utah Senator-elect Mitt Romney, have urged Whitaker to allow the Mueller investigation to run unimpeded.

Indivisible member Eileen Kreutz, of Industry, traveled to attend the protest after hearing about it through communications from Indivisible.

DOJOn his way out the door yesterday, former Attorney General Jeff Sessions took credit for reversing an upswing in violent crime.

"We have a president who is undermining public trust in our institutions every day", she said.

"The American people understand that no person is above the law and have demanded accountability from their government".

The Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (Crew) watchdog group called on Congress to protect Mr Mueller's job and investigation, saying in a statement: "So far they have refused, because congressional leaders did not believe there was an immediate threat". He insisted the Justice Department should be investigating Democrats.

The protesters sang songs, brandished signs and discussed issues with speakers, including Kennebec County District Attorney Maeghan Maloney, who won re-election to her post on Tuesday. "This must begin immediately, and if not, then a Democratic Congress will make this a priority in January", Nadler said. "We thank Attorney-General Jeff Sessions for his service, and wish him well!" he wrote. "And that is a problem for all of us". Trump has already fired James Comey, the FBI director originally overseeing the investigation. He said "there was so much smoke" surrounding Clinton that it made ideal sense for Trump Jr.to take a meeting at which he expected to receive dirt on her.

Interestingly enough, however, in the same breath, he also said the Supreme Court should have repealed the New Deal and the Affordable Care Act - neither of which would be possible without Marbury.
