American citizens in Vancouver are planning a protest Thursday following the firing by U.S. President Donald Trump of Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Whitaker was Sessions' chief of staff and outwardly criticizedMueller's investigation.
"Our country is on the line", Myra Slotnick, a rally organizer, told the crowd gathered across the street from the golden-domed State House.
That nearly certainly wouldn't be the end of this story, but it's the beginning of a new, fraught chapter.
The letter also noted that Whitaker had made no secret of his opinions on Mueller's work, which could prove problematic for the special counsel. "That's why it presents a grave threat".
The nationwide protest is being organized by a coalition of hundreds of public interest organizations. Last year Sessions recused himself from overseeing the Mueller probe, which has been a constant source of anger from the president.

"He'll have no qualms whatsoever about attempting to undermine Mueller's investigation", said Fein. It wasn't Sessions' deputy, Rod Rosenstein, the man who appointed Robert Mueller. He is a Trump loyalist, once described as the president's "eyes and ears" at DOJ.
"I'm afraid that I see so many people in our country that don't see how risky this is for our democracy", Jones said.
Genevieve Howe, of Roslindale, wrote the message, "UPHOLD THE CONSTITUTION". During that campaign, one of his chief pledges at a GOP forum was that he would ask candidates for a federal judgeships whether they are "people of faith" who had "a biblical view of justice". "Sessions allowed the Department of Justice to function as the political arm of the Trump administration to undo fundamental rights that protect each of us, disregarding years of legal precedent and settled law". Marie Follayttar Smith, executive director of Mainers for Accountable Leadership, said rallies were also held in Bangor, Brunswick, Augusta, Lewiston, Belfast, Kittery and Rockland.
