Crowd Rallies At State Capitol In Support Of Russia Investigation

US Attorney General Jeff Sessions

Although Whitaker has been publicly critical of Mueller in the past, and even suggested ways to curtail the investigation, he has no plans to recuse himself from being in charge of Mueller, according to a person familiar with the matter.

Wednesday, Trump replaced Sessions, who had recused himself from overseeing Robert Mueller's Russian Federation investigation, with acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker, who previously called Mueller's appointment "ridiculous", according to CNN. However, Trump derided his argument, calling him "Mr Kellyanne Conway" and insisted that Conway, who has been a critic of Trump, was only interested in publicity.

MacCallum told him, "July of 2017", causing the senator to laugh, which prompted MacCallum to comment that "things have changed", which made Graham laugh again.

Kreutz said the appointment of Whitaker, whom the AP called "a Republican Party loyalist", eventually could end the probe by cutting funding.

As attorney general, and earlier as White House counsel, he faced criticism for drafting controversial rules for military war tribunals, seeking to limit the legal rights of detainees at the US prison in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. "Clearly, Attorney General Sessions doesn't have the confidence of the president".

Progressive groups hastily organized the marches after President Donald Trump fired Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Wednesday and named Matt Whitaker as his acting replacement.

Billed as an "emergency protest", event organizers Democrats Abroad and Moveon.org described it as a demonstration against U.S. President Donald Trump's "sabotage of the Mueller investigation". The almost year and a half long investigation by the special counsel stems from allegations of Russian Federation coordinating with members of the Trump presidential campaign. Commenting on Trump's pick, Christie said he wanted to finish his term as New Jersey governor.

Republicans did manage to keep hold of the Senate, and Trump has been playing off the election is a big win.

Tuesday's election ended a two-month "quiet period" for Mueller's probe, and the special counsel is now expected to resume indictments and possibly attempt to force the President himself to testify under oath.

Fossil Sport Smartwatch now available with Snapdragon Wear 3100 processor
I think Fossil is offering a pretty compelling package at this price point, especially considering the hardware and newer chipset. The new chip should make a major difference in battery life, which has been one of the main issues holding smartwatches back.

When asked what was at stake in the Mueller investigation, Joanne Sheaffer of South Portland said that the rule of law is at risk.

The AP reported that the resignation "was the culmination of a toxic relationship" between Sessions and Trump based on a few factors, but largely Session's having recused himself from dealing with Mueller's probe.

This week's shakeup at the Department of Justice could affect the outcome of a subpoena challenge that an associate of Trump ally Roger Stone is waging against special counsel Robert Mueller.

"If he doesn't, then Mueller's investigation will eventually start to look like a political fishing expedition".

Whitaker also worked on Sam Clovis's failed campaign for Iowa state treasurer in 2014 after both of them ran unsuccessfully for the U.S. Senate.

"If the president seeks to interfere in the impartial administration of justice, the Congress must stop him", Adam Schiff said.

With the forced resignation of AG Jeff Sessions by @POTUS, the House of Representatives must do everything in our power to protect the integrity of the Special Counsel investigation. They include his former National Security Adviser, Michael Flynn, and his former lawyer, Michael Cohen. Several hundred people gathered in South Straub Park.

Maloney urged the protesters to call U.S. Sen.
