Progressives plan wave of U.S. protests in event Trump fires Mueller

(Reuters) - U.S. progressive and left-wing groups are gearing up for a wave of protests across the United States in the event that President Donald Trump fires the special counsel probing allegations of Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

Mueller’s ouster would put Trump above the law, said protest organizer MoveOn.org, which is planning 800 demonstrations nationwide, with at least one “Nobody Is Above The Law” rally in every state. More than 300,000 people have pledged to attend one of the “Nobody Is Above the Law” protests, according the MoveOn’s website.

“If Trump fires special counsel Robert Mueller, it will create a constitutional crisis,” MoveOn, which recently supported the March For Our Lives gun control protest in Washington, said on its website. ...

Other organizations in the movement include Common Cause, Public Citizen, Indivisible and Stand Up America, MoveOn said.

Liberals have spent a year planning protests if Trump fires Rosenstein ...

Since last year, progressive groups have prepared a nationwide protest in case Trump interfered with Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s wide-ranging investigation into the president. The highly unusual planning includes more than 300,000 men and women who have signed up to protest in all 50 states, specifying when and even what time the demonstrations will take place. ...

The possibility that Trump could fire Rosenstein took on new relevance this week, after reports that the assistant attorney general approved a raid by Federal Bureau of Investigation officials on the home and office of Michael Cohen, Trump’s personal lawyer. CNN reported Tuesday that the president was considering such a move.

Wikler and others had once planned the protests for the possibility that Trump would fire Mueller. But the grassroots leader made clear that firing Rosenstein, who oversees Mueller and the investigation, would also trigger the mass demonstrations. ...

So far, the protests are planned in every major city and many smaller ones, like Norman, Oklahoma, and Rock Hill, South Carolina. Wikler said he expects much more than the 300,000 who signed up to attend.

Demonstrators gather outside White House to protest Sessions' ouster



A group of demonstrators gathered outside the White House on Wednesday night to protest Attorney General Jeff Sessions resignation at President Trump’s request.

Footage from local CBS News affiliate, WUSA9, showed protesters spelling out "Protect Mueller" in neon letters in front of the White House late Wednesday evening. Others held signs, which included messages such as, "Trump is a dictraitor."

The protests came just hours after Sessions submitted his formal, resignation at Trump's request. Trump announced on Twitter that Matthew Whitaker, Sessions's chief of staff, would take over as acting attorney general. ...

Another demonstration, organized by groups connected with the Nobody Is Above the Law network, is planned to take place on Thursday outside the White House.

"We're mobilizing immediately to demand accountability, because Trump is not above the law."

Interesting how Trump's choice of Kavanaugh and Whitaker probably had nothing to do with the fact that both of them made it well known that they had personal opinions that happened to fall in line with protecting Trump from being held accountable for any possible criminal activity he may have been involved in. :sarcasm:

Activists call for nationwide protests to protect Mueller investigation

ATLANTA (Reuters) - U.S. progressive groups will stage hundreds of protests nationwide on Thursday to demand that President Donald Trump do nothing to hinder an ongoing investigation into Russian meddling to help him win the 2016 U.S. election.

The protests, operating under the banner "Nobody is Above the Law" and led by the activist group MoveOn, called for people to gather in cities at 5 p.m. on Thursday in an effort to protect the investigation led by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

The action was spurred by Trump's move on Wednesday to replace Attorney General Jeff Sessions with Sessions' chief of staff, Matthew Whitaker, as acting attorney general. Sessions had recused himself from overseeing the Russia investigation, while Whitaker has called for it to be scaled down.

Trump announced the move the day after a Congressional election that saw his Republicans lose control of the House of Representatives but gain seats in the Senate.

"Donald Trump has installed a crony to oversee the special counsel's Trump-Russia investigation," MoveOn said on its website. It pledged that at least one rally would be held in each state.
