More info after headlines on Matthew Whitaker overseeing the Russia investigation. Also discussion of Trump’s motives for removing Sessions.
The mass protests have officially been activated now that Sessions has been removed from the Justice Department.
This is actually happening now. We have to show up. Be peaceful, be clear with our demands, and be firm. Donald Trump is trying to stop the investigation into interference in the 2016 election. These are not the actions of an innocent man.
The main demand of the protest is for Acting Attorney General Whitaker to recuse himself from overseeing the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election and keep Deputy AG Rosenstein in charge of oversight. We just want the investigation to be completed without interference.
Whitaker must recuse.
