Indivisible and MoveOn have called for rallies across the country in response to Donald Trump’s firing of Attorney Jeff Sessions.
Join us as we gather at Vogel Plaza in Medford at
5:00 P.M. TODAY!
Over 700 rallies will take place at 5 p.m. local time across the country. The protests will focus on Donald Trump’s attempt to interfere with Robert Mueller’s Special Investigation into Trump’s Russia connections. Sessions had recused himself from overseeing the investigation because of his involvement with the Trump campaign. Trump’s pick for his replacement, Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker, has been an outspoken critic of the investigation and publicly discussed strategies to stifle it.
The Nobody Is Above the Law network demands that Whitaker immediately recuse himself and not oversee the investigation. The network believes Trump has just crossed a red line, violating the independence of the investigation. It is our belief that Trump has put himself above the law, threatening our nation’s democracy.
We demand that Congress stop him and protect Mueller’s investigation.
Note: If you choose to attend this 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 views and values.
