Massive protesters have gathered across the country from New York to California to protect Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.
On Wednesday, President Donald Trump fired his Attorney General Jeff Sessions. This move has been seen as an effort from Trump to regain control over the Russian probe.
Trump appointed Matthew Whitaker as the new acting attorney general. Whitaker once said that he would act to halt the investigation and starve its funding.
