MID-MICHIGAN (WJRT) (11/08/18) - Around the country Thursday protests were held in response to President Donald Trump's firing of Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
Protests, organized by Moveon.org, were dubbed, "Nobody is above the law." One was held in front of the Saginaw County Courthouse on Thursday evening.
More than a thousand protests were planned across the country, including 28 scheduled in Michigan.
After removing Sessions, Trump placed Matt Whitaker as acting attorney general.
Democrats are concerned, because Whitaker has been publicly critical of the special counsel leading the investigation into Russian interference during the 2016 presidential election. They believe Whitaker should recuse himself.
