Protesters call for protection of Russian Federation probe after Sessions resigns

Mitt Romney, who just won election to the U.S. Senate from Utah, also tweeted that the Mueller probe should be allowed to proceed "to its conclusion unimpeded".

Mr Whitaker has publicly criticised Mr Mueller's conduct several times since the inquiry began in May past year and taken the side of Mr Trump, who has dismissed it... He did not mention that White House chief of staff John Kelly had called Sessions beforehand to ask for his resignation.

Trump repeatedly lamented that he would have never selected Sessions if he had known the attorney general would recuse himself.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, who months ago warned Trump against firing Sessions, met with the President Thursday and said he had "confidence" Whitaker would do a professional job 'in this position'.

Democratic Representative Jerrold Nadler, who is in line to become chairman of the House Judiciary Committee in January, said it is "wholly inappropriate" for Whitaker to take over the Mueller probe and that Rosenstein should continue overseeing it.

The investigation until now has been overseen by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who appointed Mueller previous year and granted him fairly broad authority.

While speaking to reporters on Wednesday, Conway explained President Trump is not planning to use the resignation as a way to shut down the Mueller probe.

Trump abruptly altered the chain of command above Mueller on Wednesday, putting his work under the supervision of a Republican loyalist who has been openly skeptical of the special counsel's authority and has mused about ways to curtail his power. The Trump administration is going to be investigated over Russian Federation, taxes, voter ID laws, any aspect of this White House the Left hates was going to be put under the microscope now that Democrats have retaken the House.

She said the investigation into alleged Russian Federation collusion has been winding down for weeks prior to Sessions stepping down. Whitaker is poised to take over the Russian Federation investigation, a probe he has criticized in the past.

"We're here because Trump replaced Sessions and installed someone who will do his bidding, who has voiced his hostility to the Bob Mueller investigation", said Mary Melancon, 75, of Tampa. "Cox clashed with the White House over Nixon's refusal to release Oval Office recordings, some of which implicated the president in the (Watergate hotel) break-in".

In the past, medics had been dispatched to Bruns' home numerous times following 911 calls that she needed emergency medical help. The killer also told cops afterwards that she had been suffering from the effects of multiple sclerosis.


Sessions endured the name-calling in silence, even as he aggressively carried out the administration's conservative policies, such as stripping federal funding from so-called sanctuary cities and states and rescinding protection for young adults brought into the country illegally as children.
