Trump has fired Attorney General Jeff Sessions and replaced him with a political hack in a brazen effort to interfere in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation. Here’s what we know:
- "Acting Attorney General" Matthew Whitaker is replacing Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein in supervising the Mueller investigation.
- Whitaker has long advocated for limiting or completely shutting down the Mueller investigation.
- This is a clear attempt from Trump to interfere with and undermine the investigation.
- Whitaker absolutely cannot oversee this investigation.
The Four Freedoms Democratic Club, as part of a coalition of NYC activists groups organized by MoveOn, is assembling in Times Square today at 5 where we will march to Union Square to raise our voices for the rule of law. Rep. Carolyn Maloney and others will be speaking at Union Square.
Email Jerry Ferguson if you are interesting in marching with other club members. Club members will meet in front of 30 Rockefeller Center a 4:45 and walk over to Times Square together. If you can't be there at the beginning, join us en route or at Union Square. Text Jerry to connect at 917.716.6490.
