Attorneys General Call For Whitaker Recusal From Mueller Investigation

Hundreds of marchers walked from Seattle's Capitol Hill to the federal building downtown Thursday night. "He worked for Attorney General (Jeff) Sessions".

Trump elevated Whitaker to the post on Wednesday after forcing out Sessions, installing a Republican Party loyalist to oversee the special counsel investigation into possible ties between Russian Federation and the president's 2016 campaign.

U.S. President Donald Trump announced by tweet that 49-year-old Matthew Whitaker, Sessions's former chief of staff, would take over as acting attorney general until a permanent replacement is found at a later date.

Joy Robinson said the Rock Hill's protest was put together in less than a day. "We'll see what happens".

Interestingly enough, however, in the same breath, he also said the Supreme Court should have repealed the New Deal and the Affordable Care Act - neither of which would be possible without Marbury.

"We're not shedding any tears for, nor are we protesting for, Jeff Sessions". Others have said that Whitaker's appointment is unconstitutional, since Trump didn't seek the Senate's advice and consent.

There were no visible signs of counterprotesters or Trump supporters among the throng that gathered in the plaza on Broadway and Union Street.

He admitted a year ago he had met with Russian officials promising "dirt" on Trump's presidential rival Hillary Clinton. Instead of "holy hell", Graham defended the president.

"He was very, very highly thought of, and still is highly thought of, but this only comes up because anybody that works for me, they do a number on them", Trump said. "Matt Whitaker has a great reputation and that's what I wanted".

An invite for the nationwide "Nobody Is Above the Law" rallies, which garnered over 21,000 RSVPs in NY, declared that "Donald Trump just crossed a red line, violating the independence of the investigation pursuing criminal charges in the Trump-Russia scandal and cover-up".

"When you no longer have Sessions as the attorney general and you have a new attorney general, Robert Mueller has a new boss", she said into a megaphone.

"If he's innocent than fine, let it run its course", he said.

Included in the speakers were two candidates on Tuesday's ballot, Bob Doyel, a former judge who unsuccessfully challenged Republican Kelli Stargel for her Lakeland Florida Senate Seat, and Catherine Price, who was defeated by incumbent Republican state Senator Ben Albritton, of Wauchula.

"This is no witch hunt that hasn't produced anything", she said.

"As constituents of Sen".

"I just don't understand it because why invite this kind of criticism or scrutiny which you knew it was going to come because of the comments he's made earlier", said Gonzales.

Allen said Trump would likely gladly trade the possibility of a better working relationship with Democrats for protection against Mueller.

Sessions was a hugely popular figure in Alabama Republican politics before he joined the Trump administration. "He's doing whatever he wants to do, regardless of the law".
