Group gathers in La Crosse to protest firing of Jeff Sessions, appointment of his replacement



About 40 people held signs and chanted at the corner of West Avenue and Main Street Thursday night to protest the firing of Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

We talked to Michael who said he’s worried about Trump shutting down the Robert Mueller probe

He said, “The truth is important to me. The president thinks he can get away with doing things that aren’t within the scope of his office. The potential that something illegal happened during the campaign is also important.”

The appointment of Matthew Whitacker to acting attorney general has caused fear amongst some in the country that the man who has been bullish against the Robert Mueller probe for months would effectively shut it down.

Michael also credited the civic engagement of those in the country who are concerned with some of Trump’s comments or actions.

“Turnout in protests and at the polls is up. People are engaged, as well as more informed. Sunlight can clear out all of the horrible things that are going on and the corruption. It’s important that people are paying attention.”

Chants of, ‘Trump is not above the law’, and, ‘Protect Robert Mueller’, were just a few of the things heard from the group.

    Since when do we appoint a special council to investigate a crime when no crime was specified. Muller has had 2 years and millions of our dollars all he has come up with has nothing to do with Russia. Let’s just keep scaring people destroying their lives to get some one to say something about Trump. No special council in history has ever had a wide open book to investigate any one any thing get search warrants without cause and threaten citizens with prison time over technicalities. End this money wasting bullshit.Oh let’s not forget the ever so reliable hooker and her I want fame lawyer. What a joke. WIZM stop being so Liberal.
