The following press release was submitted to SOURCE.
Hours ago, Attorney General Jeff Sessions was forced out.
In his place, Donald Trump has decided to appoint a partisan loyalist who has published op-eds slamming Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.
What’s more, The Justice Department says acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker will immediately take over supervising special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation from Rod Rosenstein, the embattled deputy attorney general.
The red line has been crossed. In response, the Trump is Not Above the Law coalition is calling for nationwide rapid response protests tomorrow—Thursday, November 8—at 5 p.m. local time.
In the Metrowest, we are meeting in the parking lot at 9 Vernon St., 5 pm tomorrow (Thursday) to protest this attempt at silencing the Mueller investigation. This will be an outdoor event, so attendees should dress for the weather. Attendees are encouraged to bring handmade signs and flashlights, and chairs, if needed.

“Let’s be clear: Matt Whitaker cannot have oversight of the Russia investigation, and must allow the investigation to continue,” said Norma Shulman. “Americans deserve full and truthful answers. We can only do that with a full, thorough investigation, free from interference.”
