Democrats Seek Hearing on Trump's Ouster of Sessions

Sen. Mark Warner on New AG: 'Chances of Mueller Getting Interfered With Goes Up Dramatically'

The Portland Press Herald reported that rallies also were held in Bangor, Belfast, Brunswick, Kittery, Lewiston and Rockland.

Nevertheless he appealed to Republicans not "beholden" to Donald Trump to reign in any attempt to fire Mueller.

The protest was organized by Indivisible Portland and Nasty Women Get Stuff Done PDX. Trump said this week a permanent replacement will be nominated at "a later date". "We had several hundred people who showed up, chilly, moments notice, to say we are paying attention, and we are watching, and we care".

"You didn't have any problem for Matt Whitaker when he worked for Jeff Sessions".

Whitaker, speaking on CNN in 2017, said he had respect for Mueller and then went on to say he would be surprised if the special counsel had any concerns about the termination of Sessions and its effect on the investigation. Protestors anxious Whitaker would use his new position to stifle the investigation before its conclusion.

He also said the line of succession within the Justice Department does not include the chief of staff and the fact that someone in that position would be made acting attorney general is "very odd".

The appeals court panel heard oral arguments on the case on Thursday, during which the judges said that it should be argued as if the shake-up at the Justice Department hadn't happened, but indicated that they were likely to ask for briefing on the change of leadership.

Indivisible member Eileen Kreutz, of Industry, traveled to attend the protest after hearing about it through communications from Indivisible.

Schumer and other leading Democrats were joined in their call for an unhampered probe by Republican Mitt Romney, a former presidential candidate and frequent Trump critic who won a US Senate seat in Tuesday's midterm.

"[Trump] is essentially trying to obstruct justice", said Cameron Mitchell Jr. with Democrats Abroad.

Democrats Take Control of the House With Victories in the Suburbs
Trump spent the day at the White House, tweeting , making calls, monitoring the races and meeting with his political team. He said, "All the accusations that we will be meddling in today's elections turned out to be empty statements".

Live, ongoing coverage as nation takes to street to let Trump know that "nobody is above the law". He called Mr. Whitaker "a very good person and a talented person".

A former US attorney and conservative commentator, Whitaker past year wrote an opinion piece for CNN arguing that Mueller would be going too far if he investigated the Trump family's finances.

"I'm concerned that Whitaker is going to try to find a way to sabotage the investigation", she said.

"I like Jeff Sessions". "And that is a problem for all of us".

"President Trump has fired the attorney general". So because of those conflicts, they didn't want to bring him before the Senate, ' Trump said.

It's not clear whether his connections to Sam Clovis, who has been questioned in the Mueller probe, and with the president would be enough to force his recusal.

Demonstrators gathered outside the USA consulate at 1075 West Pender St., some wearing American flags and others toting signs with messages such as "no one is above the law".

He said that other former Trump associates Paul Manafort, Michael Cohen and Trump Organization CFO Allen Weisselberg are all cooperating with the government, and that the "public needs to see the results" of the probe.

In July 2017, he said during an interview on CNN that he could envision a scenario under which a temporary attorney general doesn't fire Mueller but rather "just reduces his budget to so low that his investigations grinds to nearly a halt".
