Protesters rally in White Plains, across US to protect Mueller probe

WHITE PLAINS -

Activists are demanding that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation be protected following Jeff Sessions' ouster.

Protesters held rallies across the nation, including some in the Hudson Valley.

Organizers started planning the Nobody is Above the Law rally more than a year ago, and with a day's notice, they they put their plan into action and executed more than 900 rallies across the country.

Liz Scadifi, of the progressive grassroots activists group Indivisible White Plains, says they want to send a message to President Donald Trump.

They believe his firing of Attorney General Sessions Wednesday and installing political loyalist Matthew Whittaker is an attempt to end the Robert Mueller probe and potentially obstruct justice.
