Crowd gathers in Rock Hill to protest Trump’s firing of Sessions

Crowd gathers in Rock Hill to protest Trump’s firing of Sessions

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi on Thursday said "this is a perilously constitutional moment", when responding to President Donald Trump's dismissal of ex-Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

In Manhattan, the demonstrators shouted, "Trump is not above the law!" Kobach, who has built a national profile as an advocate of tough immigration laws, advised Trump's campaign and the White House on homeland security issues and has made enacting state policies against illegal immigration a cornerstone of his campaign for governor.

A coalition of progressive groups organized the nationwide event, called "Mueller Protection Rapid Response". But, in another interview that year, Whitaker also said he felt there was a red line for the probe.

"Sometimes the voters need to do more than vote", she said. I was expecting 60, maybe 80 people.

Trump announced the resignation and Whitaker's assignment on Twitter.

He said he knows little about Whitaker, other than his portrayal as a staunch "Trump loyalist".

Once that happens, a Democratic majority could use subpoena power not only to pursue any avenues of investigation that are limited by Whitaker, but to probe why he took such steps.

Speakers encouraged attendees to contact their representatives in Washington, D.C. and call for the acting attorney general, Matthew Whitaker, to recuse himself from the investigation, as Sessions had done. "Dear Mr. President, at your request I am submitting my resignation", he wrote.

The crowd in Portland was clearly angry with Trump.

Several downtown streets were shut down as the crowd chanted, "This is what democracy looks like", and, "No Trump, no KKK, no racist US", while Chicago police escorted protesters through the Loop.

CNN's Jim Acosta, who regularly spars with Trump and his spokeswoman Sarah Sanders, annoyed the president by asking if he'd demonised immigrants during the midterms election campaign and then went on to ask about the Russian Federation probe.

That drew criticism from Democrats in Congress because Whitaker, who would now take over responsibility for overseeing Mueller and his investigation, has been critical of the Mueller probe, saying it should be scaled back.

"There is a lot to fight against with this administration; both the president himself, but also the people he has appointed", she said.

"Whitaker is recused from all aspects of the Special Counsel's probe, and ensure that the Department of Justice safeguards the integrity of the Mueller investigation", said Rep. Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland, the ranking Democrat on the House Oversight Committee.

Asked whether Whitaker would assume control over Mueller's investigation, Justice Department spokeswoman Sarah Flores said Whitaker would be "in charge of all matters under the purview of the Department of Justice". He called Trump's recent actions "a rerun of the 'Saturday Night Massacre, ' " a reference to the October 20, 1973 resignations of the attorney general and deputy attorney general after each refused an order by President Richard Nixon to fire Watergate special prosecutor Archibald Cox.

Joy Robinson said the Rock Hill's protest was put together in less than a day. "It's pretty clear from this and some of [Whitaker's] other statements on climate that he sees government officials who are trying to address climate change as some kind of enemy", Hecht says. "We have to get rid of Trump".
