Protests in Reno Over the Mueller Investigation

Activists in Reno will join a nationwide protest in support of protecting Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into the Russian interference in the 2016 election. The protests come in response to President Trump installing longtime ally Matthew Whitaker as Acting Attorney General, taking over oversight of the Mueller investigation from Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. The activists will demand that Whitaker recuse himself, given his conflicts of interest and previous statements attacking the investigation. Demonstrators will be at City Plaza in Reno at 5pm.
