Protest in Redwood City tonight related to Trump appointee

in Community/Featured/Headline

As part of the national Nobody Is Above the Law network, an event protesting President Trump’s recent appointment of Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker will take place at San Mateo County Museum at 5 p.m. today.

Organizers of the movement say President Trump “crossed a red line” when he appointed Whitaker to replace ousted Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Their main concern is that Whitaker, who media reports reveal openly criticized special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russian investigation into election meddling, will now be overseeing the probe.

“Donald Trump has installed a crony to oversee the special counsel’s Trump-Russia investigation, crossing a red line set to protect the investigation,” organizers of tonight’s event state on their website.

The network demands Whitaker to recuse himself from the investigation.
