Americans take to streets to demand Russian Federation investigation be protected

Hundreds of people plan to rally at the Capitol in downtown Sacramento on Thursday afternoon to show support for the ongoing Russian Federation investigation, part of a nationwide protest after the Wednesday ouster of U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions by President Donald Trump.

Congressional Democrats, concerned about protecting Mueller, called on Whitaker to recuse himself from overseeing the investigation in its final but potentially explosive stages.

Whitaker is a longtime critic of Mueller's endless Russia probe, which has failed to produce a scintilla of evidence related to Russian collusion.

The White House is bracing for the probe of Donald Trump's presidential campaign to fire up again. The agency did not announce a departure for Rosenstein, who appointed Mueller and has closely overseen his work.

In fact, Whitaker told CNN past year that a future attorney general could limit Mueller by reducing the budget "so low that his investigations grinds to nearly a halt".

Former Gov. Chris Christie is reportedly under consideration to replace Jeff Sessions as attorney general.

King, who sits on the Senate Intelligence Committee, pointed to the passage of a bill supporting Mueller's investigation as the most important action in the wake of the Sessions dismissal, but didn't offer any more specifics about what should be done.

In April, Pingree co-sponsored House legislation to protect the Mueller investigation by making it more hard for a president to remove a special counsel.

Mr Sessions removed himself from the probe after Democrats accused him of failing to disclose contacts he had had with the Russian ambassador as a senior adviser to Mr Trump's campaign.

It was Clovis, no stranger to TV and radio himself, who encouraged Whitaker to get a regular commentary gig on cable television to get President Donald Trump's attention, according to friends who Whitaker told at the time.

A personal connection to a Mueller witness is unlikely to sway Whitaker or the White House when it comes to recusal, as Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein supervised the probe despite being a witness himself. "There is no mistaking what this means, and what is at stake: this is a constitutionally perilous moment for our country and for the president".

"As the attorney general has repeatedly said, she has not yet made a decision as to what she will do next", Bondi spokesman Whitney Ray said in an email to CNN. "By forcing the firing (of) the attorney general, the president now threatens the rule of law itself".

Troubled that the president has crossed a "red line" toward firing special counsel Robert Mueller, more than 900 activists have planned protests on Thursday at 5 p.m. nationwide, including in Santa Barbara.

The special counsel's team has been investigating Stone's connection to WikiLeaks during the 2016 campaign and whether he had advance knowledge of the group's plans to release hacked material damaging to Democrat Hillary Clinton.

In piercing attacks, Trump called Sessions weak and beleaguered.

Sessions took the lead in imposing Trump's travel ban targeting a number of mostly Muslim nations, canceling the so-called Dreamer program that let the children of undocumented immigrants remain in the USA and forcing the separation of migrant families as part of a border crossing crackdown.
