A large crowd marched to downtown Seattle on Thursday evening to call for protecting special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into potential coordination between Russian Federation and President Donald Trump's 2016 campaign.
Activists in South Bend, Indiana will join a nationwide Rapid Response protest in support of protecting Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into the Russian interference in the 2016 election. He said there was no evidence of collusion.
The forced resignation of Jeff Sessions as attorney general has caused profound leadership changes at the Justice Department, above all affecting oversight of the investigation into ties between President Donald Trump's campaign and Russian Federation. Whitaker has been critical of Mueller's investigation, and his appointment has stoked fears that he will end it.
White House adviser Kellyanne Conway is setting the record straight about Attorney General Jeff Sessions' resignation.
The man who will serve at least temporarily as the nation's top law enforcement official is Matthew G. Whitaker.
"Sessions did not do the thing he could have done to better protect Rosenstein, and through Rosenstein, the Mueller investigation", Vladeck said.
"Firing Sessions was Trump's way of appointing a loyalist to control the investigation", said Jacob Beard, a 33-year-old software technician from Manhattan.
Kathleen Clark, a professor of legal ethics at Washington University in St. Louis, said Whitaker's previous comments about the Mueller probe raise questions about his impartiality and warrant his recusal.

Peter Kirchgraber, 55, of Towson said Trump had flouted the rule of law, which he says "is what separates us from the banana republics". He became Jeff Sessions's chief of staff a year ago after he began speaking out against Mueller's probe.
Outside US Congress, progressives activated a plan for mass protests across the United States, starting at 5 p.m. on Thursday in all time zones.
"Unelected judges are deciding numerous issues of the day", he complained, adding that Marbury was a bad ruling and we should revisit the Court as "the final arbiter of constitutional issues". "We still have a say no matter what Donald Trump thinks", Viola said. As CBS News has reported, chief of staff John Kelly called Sessions shortly before a presidential press conference on Wednesday and asked him to resign. Normally, even the acting attorney general needs to be appointed by the Senate and the Congress, and they need to vet and give their blessing. Just recently, he told an interviewer that Sessions "never had control" of the justice department. Federal prosecutors have said in court papers that the case involves numerous "uncharged" third parties and have argued against disclosing search warrants and other documents that would "certainly result in a very public guessing game" about their identities.
