Anti-Trump protesters in Cottonwood join nationwide protests backing Mueller probe

The Mueller investigation is looking into alleged foreign government efforts to interfere in the 2016 presidential election and includes possible links between Trump's campaign and the Russian government. And he was critical of Sessions' recusal from the Russian Federation probe, which put Rosenstein in charge of it. Trump said Sessions' recusal was "extremely unfair" and he wouldn't have given Sessions the job if he had known Sessions would recuse himself.

Whitaker has made public comments critical of Mueller's investigation, and critics have called on Whitaker to recuse himself from oversight of the inquiry.

That opened the way for the new acting attorney-general, Matthew Whitaker, to assume direct supervision of Mueller, raising questions of whether he will halt the investigation to protect the president.

Some protesters said they fear Trump is close to causing a constitutional crisis.

She is also the first Somali American to win election to national office, according to CNN . Was a candidate for District 6 representative on the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board.

"Donald Trump wasted no time after the midterm elections interfering in the Mueller investigation", the statement said.

"I imagine we would have seen an even bigger protest if it had not been on such short notice", Bryan said.

McConnell didn't weigh in on whether Whitaker should recuse himself from the Mueller probe.

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".

While Whitaker is now Mueller's ultimate supervisor, it was not immediately clear whether that meant Rosenstein would step aside.

"It's not necessary. The Mueller investigation is not under threat", McConnell said Friday at the Kentucky State Capitol in Frankfort. "In my role as a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, I look forward to meeting with acting Attorney General Whitaker soon and have confidence he will do a professional job in this position".

The president tweeted, "Jeff Flake (y) doesn't want to protect the Non-Senate confirmed Special Counsel, he wants to protect his future after being unelectable in Arizona for the "crime" of doing a awful job!"

"It's not going to come up because it isn't necessary", the Kentucky Republican told reporters. "I'm saying there's a middle ground where he tells us the story, locks it into the court system by indicting others, then files a report with Whitaker". "Any other officer in the Justice Department who was appointed through advice and consent can serve, including the Deputy AG, the solicitor general, and the assistant AGs", said Yoo, now a law professor at the University of California, Berkeley.
