Protest to Protect the Mueller Investigation
Greg Taylor | Nov 8, 2018 AT 1:12 pm
Activists in the Winona area will join a nationwide protest in support of protecting Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into the Russian interference in the 2016 election. The protests come in response to President Trump installing longtime ally Matthew Whitaker as Acting Attorney General, taking over oversight of the Mueller investigation from Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. The activists will demand that Whitaker recuse himself given his conflicts of interest and previous statements attacking the investigation.
The protests come just one day after congressional Democrats won back control of the U.S. House on a promise to investigate the Trump administration and President Trump fired Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
The nationwide protest is being organization by a coalition of hundreds of public interest organizations. More information can be found at TrumpIsNotAboveTheLaw.org.
WHAT: Protest to Protect the Mueller Investigation
WHEN: 5 pm local time
WHERE: Windom Park at W. Broadway and Huff Street
This is intended to be a non-violent, peaceful event. All attendees will be asked to obey all laws, respect each other and respect the park and surrounding properties. We believe that Trump is not above the law, and neither are we.
