Corpus Christi (KIII News) — Thousands of protestors across the country and in Corpus Christi are urging the White House not to impede Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian meddling during the 2016 election.
The demonstrations are a direct result of President Donal Trump's decision to fire Attorney General Jeff Sessions, and replaced him on an interim basis, with Sessions' former chief of staff, Matt Whitaker.
In the past, Whittaker has been critical of the Mueller investigation.
Dozens were protesting in front of the federal, and their message was to make sure Mueller's investigation into the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election is completed.
Whitaker has publicly denounced the probe into whether the Trump campaign colluded with the Russians obstructing justice.
Some of the signs protestors had included "Trump is the problem," "Mueller is the Solution" "Let Mueller finish,' and "Whitaker must recuse."
The protestors message was also to protect democracy, and one anti-trump protestor held a sign with a picture of Hitler and Trump side by side that said - -What is different?
"He's breaking the laws, and as happened in Germany the officially elected representatives have not been standing up," protestor Kay Leuschner said. "We are the people and government should represent us, and laws should protect us, and now they're being torn down bit by bit in every area of our country."
"The appointment or the firing of Sessions, he just picked someone, a loyalist to be the US Attorney General without Senate approval," protestor Mary Alice Gonzales said.
The protestors want their community to be aware of what's going on in politics as they are calling the democracy of the U.S. very fragile.
Organizers of protests across the U.S. have warned of even more massive protests if Trump were to fire Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who had been overseeing the Mueller investigation after Sessions recused himself.
