Leftists Rally at White House to Protest Trump, Protect Mueller

"It's not ok for someone to break the law and be above the law".

Sessions felt that Mueller's investigation had gone on too long, but also believed it was important that he stay in the attorney general job as a means of protecting the special counsel's work so that, when it was concluded, the public would have confidence it had not been manipulated, according to a person familiar with his thinking.

They are calling for a "rapid response" to protect Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is overseeing the investigation.

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

Former presidential candidate and newly-elected senator of Utah, Mitt Romney, tweeted, "I want to thank Jeff Sessions for his service to our country as Attorney General". Whitaker, however, has made comments skeptical of the Mueller probe. In an op-ed for The New York Times on Thursday, George Conway argued that the appointment was unconstitutional and accused the president of seeking to evade requirements that an attorney general be confirmed by the Senate.

Demonstrators characterized Trump as a dictator who must be held in check by Congress.

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

Now that the House of Representatives is in the control of Democrats-who will support the Mueller investigation with their subpoena power-the president clearly feels increasingly threatened.

President Donald Trump's pick for acting attorney general, Matt Whitaker, is a close friend of Trump's 2016 election campaign co-chair, and a former government ethics chief said the friendship makes Whitaker unable to oversee impartially a politically charged investigation into the campaign. The former USA senator from Alabama was once one of the president's most loyal and trusted advisers before infuriating Trump over his recusal from the Russian Federation investigation.

Whitaker is a former US attorney from Iowa who founded a law firm with other Republican Party activists.

"He's called it a lynch mob", said Bookbinder, head of the Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics, a Washington group.

"You would always take that meeting. I'm not recused, you're not recused", Conway told reporters.

But party leaders said they need to be judicious about striking at Mr Trump - knowing their actions could energise an angry Republican base if they attack him indiscriminately. Whitaker has been publicly critical of the investigation in the past.

"Mueller has come up to a red line in the Russian Federation 2016 election-meddling investigation that he is dangerously close to crossing", Whitaker wrote. Trump's advisers are privately expressing worries that special counsel Robert Mueller, who's been out of the news for the past month, has been stealthily compiling information and could soon issue new indictments or a damning final report. Many of them reflect statutory requirements imposed by Congress, and several may well set substantial restrictions on Whitaker's eligibility to supervise the Mueller investigation due to his prior positions and relationships.

Pres. Donald Trump asked for Jeff Sessions' resignation and then replaced him with Whitaker, his chief of staff. Whitaker has criticized Mueller's probe. One possible tactic would be continually telling prosecutors that their requests require more work or evidence before moving to the next stage, said Jeffrey Cramer, a former federal prosecutor.
