Demonstrators around the country rally to protect Mueller investigation

Thousands of demonstrators took to the streets in cities and towns across the country Thursday evening to show support for special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.

On Wednesday, a group of activist organizations under the banner “Nobody Is Above the Law” called for protests at 5 p.m. Thursday over fears that President Donald Trump’s acting attorney general, Matthew Whitaker, will derail Mueller’s probe into Russian election interference and possible collusion by the Trump campaign.

Whitaker has publicly voiced his doubts about the Mueller probe, and said in a 2017 interview that there was “no collusion.”

Vocal but peaceful crowds — numbering in the thousands in some cities to just a handful in smaller towns — called for Mueller’s investigation to be protected, chanting “Trump is not above the law!”
