Trump's attorney general switch sparks Russian Federation probe fury

Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan is one of the speakers., 21 holds the flag behind her.) People hold a protest to protect the Mueller investigation on Boston Common across from the State House

November 7, 2018Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer on Jeff Sessions' resignation: "Protecting Mueller and his investigation is paramount".

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.

"I'm confident the White House is looking for someone who the president and country can have confidence in, and be confirmed by the Senate", Graham said in a statement. He called Trump's recent actions "a rerun of the 'Saturday Night Massacre, ' " a reference to the October 20, 1973 resignations of the attorney general and deputy attorney general after each refused an order by President Richard Nixon to fire Watergate special prosecutor Archibald Cox.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who has been overseeing the probe, still has a job. "By forcing the firing (of) the attorney general, the president now threatens the rule of law itself".

Jeff Sessions, the former attorney general, recused himself from overseeing an investigation into the president's campaign and possible collusion with Russian Federation in March 2017.

The office of House Speaker Paul Ryan, a Republican, did not respond to a request for comment on the Democrats' request to put protections for the special counsel probe into spending legislation.

The protests were organized by MoveOn.org, a group that says it advocates for social justice and political progress. The investigation is looking into USA allegations of Russian meddling in the election two years ago and any possible coordination between Russian and the Trump campaign, which the president denies. "We prosecuted the largest number of violent offenders and firearm defendants in our country's history", he said in his resignation letter.

USA media sources have claimed special counsel Mueller is on the verge of claiming his biggest scalp yet as he readies an indictment against Donald Trump Junior. They are going to go after him and you are seeing it already.

Before Trump gave a news conference on Wednesday, White House Chief of Staff John Kelly called Sessions and told him that Trump wanted him out, the official said.

Dead After California Shooting At Popular Nightspot, Police Say
Long was armed with a Glock 21, a.45-caliber pistol created to hold 10 rounds plus one in the chamber, according to the sheriff. They try to stem the bleeding of what appears to be a gunshot wound. "You just don't expect it to happen in Thousand Oaks".

Special Counsel Robert Mueller (2nd L) leaves after a closed meeting with members of the Senate Judiciary Committee June 21, 2017 at the Capitol in Washington, DC.

The mayor said the Senate's right tilt Tuesday night could pose a threat to the investigation.

That drew criticism from Democrats in Congress because Whitaker, who would now take over responsibility for overseeing Mueller and his investigation, has been critical of the Mueller probe, saying it should be scaled back.

In an article for The Hill, Whitaker said that former FBI Director James Comey was "just wrong" to say that there was no case against her: "I was a federal prosecutor for five years and was proud to serve in the Department of Justice, and I would've brought that case".

"If the president seeks to interfere in the impartial administration of justice, the Congress must stop him", Adam Schiff said. Whitaker reportedly does not plan to recuse himself.

Trump has crossed a red line - and we're mobilizing. When Comey ran the FBI, Trump asked him whether he was a target in the Russian Federation meddling investigation.

Those actions could involve seeking new indictments from a grand jury or a subpoena forcing Trump to sit for an interview.

How many people will show up remains to be seen.
