CHICAGO — Protest over the firing of U.S. Attorney General Jeff Session and Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker taking over supervision of the Mueller investigation were planned across the state on Thursday. While protests nationally were coordinated by MoveOn.org, Illinois actions were organized by local groups and individuals. Protestors are concerned that Whitaker, who had criticized the Mueller investigation as a witch hunt, will shut the investigation down before it can issue a report and further charges. Here’s a listing of the protests we know of, organized by region. We’ll add more as we learn of them.
