Progressive groups plan nationwide protests over Mueller report release (NBC News link): A coalition of the nation’s biggest progressive grassroots organizations is activating a nationwide protest plan in response to Attorney General William Barr’s expected failure to meet an April 2 deadline set by House Democrats to release Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s full Russia report to Congress.
The plan marks a shift in strategy for the coalition, which had for months been organizing a protest plan in anticipation that the Mueller report might not be released to the public at all. After initially summarizing Mueller’s work in a 4-page document sent to Congress on March 24, Barr has said he’ll release a more substantive version of the report by mid-April.
Now, the coalition’s focus is forcing transparency around one of the most politically sensitive documents in modern American history.
It’s unclear how many people will actually turn out at the protests, but thousands have RSVP'd online to attend to TrumpIsNotAboveTheLaw.org, including more than 16,000 who signed up to protest outside the White House.
