San Diegans join protests demanding protections for Mueller probe

"I didn't speak to Matt Whitaker about" the Russian Federation investigation, Trump told reporters this morning, "I don't know Matt Whitaker".

Sessions resigned Wednesday - indicating he did so at Trump's request - and the President appointed Matthew Whitaker, Sessions' chief of staff, as the Acting Attorney General.

Whitaker, according to sources, is now overseeing everything at the Justice Department, including the Russian Federation investigation - despite calls from Democrats to recuse himself.

"Trump wants to shut down the Mueller investigation and we'll never know the facts", said Kristy Lynch, a stay-at-home mom from Maplewood, N.J., who marched with her 3-year-old twins and 8-year-old daughter.

Pelosi also called on Whitaker to recuse himself from any involvement in Robert Mueller's investigation. Before joining the Justice Department, Whitaker was openly critical of the Mueller investigation.

Sessions' resignation, in a one-page letter to President Donald Trump, came one day after Republicans lost control of the House of Representatives and was the first of several expected post-midterms Cabinet and White House departures.

Mueller is probing both Russia's interference and whether Trump's presidential campaign may have colluded with Moscow.

That contradicted remarks Trump made on Fox News last month, when he called Whitaker "a great guy" and said "I mean, I know Matt Whitaker".

When federal prosecutors targeted his longtime former attorney Michael Cohen, Trump insisted Cohen handled only a "tiny, tiny fraction" of his legal work.

Fans were all in unison with their praise for Winks, stating that he was the best player on the pitch. But we fought to the end. "We have been grinding results out here and there all season".

"He was very, very highly thought of, and still is highly thought of, but this only comes up because anybody that works for me, they do a number on them", Trump said.

In 2017, Whitaker wrote an opinion piece featured on CNN titled "Mueller's investigation of Trump is going too far".

"We don't have a king or a junta or a dictator, do we?" said Arlington Heights rally organizer Jerry Freda.

Trump was asked about Robert Mueller's probe, and he replied: "I didn't speak to Matt Whitaker about it".

"When Sessions left, what I did very simply is take a man who worked for Sessions", Trump said.

Laura Bottorff, of Valparaiso, said she is afraid that Mueller's report will be hidden from the American people.

"This is not just about firing Jeff Sessions", Jayapal said, "It is about putting in place somebody who has already clearly demonstrated that he can't oversee this investigation".

The letter, sent Thursday to Whitaker, also said Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein has "ably supervised the Special Counsel's investigation from its outset". Campaign efforts include ending the Iraq war and combatting gun violence by ending politicians' affiliation with the NRA, but since 2016 the organization says it has been "a pillar of the Resistance to Trump".
