Toledo joins other cities in #ProtectMueller protests

From North Carolina to New York, Texas and Chicago to Toledo, people gathered to protect what they called Robert Mueller and the Russia investigation.

“When something so outrageous is going on in your country, we must all go out and let our voices be heard,” said Melissa Portala from Toledo.

The nationwide protests stem from Jeff Sessions’ dismissal as attorney general.

In his place is Matthew Whitaker, a man who openly criticized the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 elections. Part of his job will be to oversee this process, that is, unless he apologizes.

“We are calling on lawmakers to call for Mr. Whitaker to step down.

In the meantime, President Trump has made it clear what he thinks of the investigation.

“I could fire everyone now,” he said. “But I don’t want to stop it. Politically it’s a shame and should never have started because there was no crime.”

Due to the rush in several cities on Thursday, many disagree.

“Nobody is above the law and Trump is not the law,” added Portala.

They fear that one wrong step could result in disaster.

“If our country gets into a constitutional crisis, it will affect everyone. Everyone will be affected, ”Reed told 13abc.

Mr Trump is still looking for a permanent replacement for Sessions.
