A progressive organization that focuses on social justice and equality, MoveOn acts as a mobilization tool for a number of efforts, including supporting candidates and passing legislation through campaigns on its website, moveon.org. Hundreds of events were organized, stretching as far as Amsterdam. "I had no clue there would be this many people", Follayattar said.

People held aloft their cell phones during the rally.

In an editorial for CNN.com a year ago, Whitaker made clear that he believes the president's personal finances are off limits to special counsel Robert Mueller.

The row, carried live on national TV networks, was followed by Trump issuing angry put-downs to several other reporters. She said the group's activism is wider than serving as a foil for the GOP and Trump. "His numbers went up and ours went down, and we underperformed in the next election", he said.

Mr Trump lost trust in his top law enforcement officer after Mr Sessions announced that he would step aside from the Russian Federation investigation previous year, and allow his deputy Rod Rosenstein to lead the politically-charged probe.

Brexit poll: how the United Kingdom would vote today
The Irish Taoiseach Leo Varadkar has today warned the United Kingdom that is can not alone decide when the Irish backstop ends. A deal on the Irish border to break the Brexit deadlock is not close, the EU's chief negotiator has said.

Since stepping into his new role on Wednesday, Whitaker has faced questions - principally from Democrats - about whether he should recuse from the Russian Federation investigation, given that he has written opinion pieces in the past about the investigation, and is a friend and political ally of a witness.

As acting Attorney-General, Mr Whitaker can now tell Mr Mueller what areas to investigate or leave alone.

"According to the chain of command, (Rosenstein) should be the attorney general", Gorton said.

"It seems clear at this point the president appointed Whitaker to the office explicitly because of Whitaker's published views on how the special counsel's investigation might be contained", said Enevoldsen, 32, a research assistant.

Indivisible member Eileen Kreutz, of Industry, traveled to attend the protest after hearing about it through communications from Indivisible.

President Donald Trump has been interrupted multiple times by protesters during his IN rally on his final midterm sprint. The majority of the state's voting places shut their doors at 6 p.m. and the rest at 7 p.m.

Also on Thursday, 18 attorneys general, including Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan, called for the recusal of Whitaker from Mueller's investigation.

New York Rep. Jerry Nadler, who's likely to be the next House Judiciary Committee Chairman, said in a statement on Wednesday that he would investigate Sessions' dismissal. We're mobilizing immediately to demand accountability, because Trump is not above the law.

Whitaker has previously said and written that the investigation should be limited in scope and the Department of Justice could essentially end it by cutting off funding. Trump putting himself above the law is a threat to our democracy, and we've got to get Congress to stop him.

"It's unfortunate that we all knew the president was going to try to get rid of Jeff Sessions", Warner, a Virginia Democrat, said. "And that is a problem for all of us".

Trump has told confidants he remains deeply annoyed by the 18-month-old Mueller probe, believing it is not just a "witch hunt" but an expensive and lengthy negative distraction. He said "there was so much smoke" surrounding Clinton that it made flawless sense for Trump Jr.to take a meeting at which he expected to receive dirt on her.

Arsenal draw is a learning curve for Liverpool, says James Milner
Jurgen Klopp's side took the lead through James Milner before Alexandre Lacazette equalised late on with a sublime finish. He looked lively in the opening period, at one stage swapping flanks in order to breach the Liverpool backline.

Kreutz said if any president, regardless of political party, was dodging procedure with appointments, she would be protesting in the same manner.
