Protesters In Bay Area, Nationwide Seek To Protect Russia Investigation

Some held signs that read "Trump is not above the law" and "Protect Mueller!".

Crowds also turned out at the White House and in Greensboro, North Carolina; Chattanooga, Tennessee; Las Vegas and many other places.

Mr. Whitaker, who was chief of staff to Mr. Sessions, has expressed skepticism previously about the Mueller probe.

That job gives Whitaker the power to oversee the Russian Federation probe.

Valparaiso City Councilman Robert Cotton, D-2nd, said the Mueller investigation needs to be protected.

DOJOn his way out the door yesterday, former Attorney General Jeff Sessions took credit for reversing an upswing in violent crime. So Donald Trump has just made another power grab.

The ongoing investigation has produced guilty pleas from four former Trump aides.

He said he thought their injuries were minor, and that majority were likely injured as they escaped, some by breaking windows. A law enforcement officer said the suspect used a.45-caliber handgun, created to hold a magazine of 10 rounds.

New York City Rep. Jerrold Nadler - who is now the ranking Democratic member of the House Judiciary Committee and could be the next chairman of the committee with Democrats taking control of the U.S. House of Representatives - questioned the president's move on Twitter and said that "we will be holding people accountable".

"I'm not doing anything", he said. He also said there was no evidence Russian Federation interfered in the election at all.

Radio Sputnik Loud and Clear spoke with Julie Hurwitz, a civil rights attorney and partner at the law firm Goodman, Hurwitz and James, and Dan Kovalik, a human rights and labor lawyer and the author of the new book "The Plot to Control the World: How the US Spent Billions to Change the Outcome of Elections Around the World", about Whitaker. Trump has blasted Federal Bureau of Investigation leadership as biased and said its reputation was in tatters after an Federal Bureau of Investigation agent was discovered sharing anti-Trump text messages.

"You would always take that meeting". Trump, a frequent critic of Acosta, said the reporter was a "very unprofessional guy" and insisted: "I don't think he's a smart person, but he's got a loud voice".

During a brief stint a year ago as a conservative legal commentator on CNN, Whitaker often appeared as a Trump defender, saying he saw no evidence the president colluded with Russians during the 2016 campaign or obstructed justice. Campaign efforts include ending the Iraq war and combatting gun violence by ending politicians' affiliation with the NRA, but since 2016 the organization says it has been "a pillar of the Resistance to Trump".

USA media sources have claimed special counsel Mueller is on the verge of claiming his biggest scalp yet as he readies an indictment against Donald Trump Junior. "This would not only be out of character for a respected figure like Mueller, but also could be damaging to the President of the United States and his family - and by extension, to the country", he wrote. The acting attorney general, Matt Whitaker - now Sessions' chief of staff - has written opinion pieces that Mueller's probe should be shut down.

Schumer said Trump's appointment of Whitaker without Senate confirmation "ignored the statutory line of succession and potentially violated the Appointments Clause of the Constitution, which requires all principal officers of the government to be nominated by the president by and with the advice and consent of the Senate". Whitaker accompanied the tweet with his own comment to his followers: "Worth a Read".
