Times Square NYC Overflows During Thursday Night Mueller Protection Protest (IMAGES)


Americans stood up and took back the House of Representatives in the 2018 midterm elections, and once they realized their power, people began to exert it elsewhere. In over 900 impromptu national MoveOn.org rallies, the people made their voices heard about a Donald Trump lackey replacing Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who oversees the Special Counsel Robert Mueller investigation. All assembled at 5:00 p.m. EST, and the country went wild.

Mueller has been investigating Russia’s attack on the 2016 presidential election and any conspiracy between the Trump presidential campaign and Moscow. The probe has been flying at warp speed with the number indictments and charges for the people who satellite around this president nearing 100.

Then, POTUS fired his Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who had to recuse himself, because he worked on Trump’s campaign. That lifted the block between himself and the special counsel. Yet, the people all raised their voices in every state and territory to say “No!”

MoveOn.org organized the event and explained what the protest was about:

‘Donald Trump has installed a crony to oversee the special counsel’s Trump-Russia investigation, crossing a red line set to protect the investigation. By replacing Rod Rosenstein with just-named Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker as special counsel Robert Mueller’s boss on the investigation, Trump has undercut the independence of the investigation. Whitaker has publicly outlined strategies to stifle the investigation and cannot be allowed to remain in charge of it. The Nobody Is Above the Law network demands that Whitaker immediately commit not to assume supervision of the investigation. Our hundreds of response events are being launched to demonstrate the public demand for action to correct this injustice.’

‘Wow! The moveon protest in NYC to support Mueller is quite large for short notice.’

Then, MoveOn.org noted that the commander-in-chief had “crossed a red line:”

‘Donald Trump just crossed a red line, violating the independence of the investigation pursuing criminal charges in the Trump-Russia scandal and cover-up. Trump putting himself above the law is a threat to our democracy, and we’ve got to get Congress to stop him. We’re mobilizing immediately to demand accountability, because Trump is not above the law.’

The people had to agree to engage in “nonviolent, peaceful actions, and to act lawfully,” if they wanted to attend. MoveOn.org noted:

‘Note: If you choose to attend an event, you agree to engage in nonviolent, peaceful action, to act lawfully, and to strive to de-escalate any potential confrontations with those who may disagree with our values.’
