Hundreds rally in Santa Fe to support Mueller probe

SANTA FE, N.M. — About 400 people showed up the Santa Fe Railyard Thursday night to rally against the possibility that special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of Russian interference into the 2016 U.S. election may be stopped under a new acting attorney general.

Mayor Alan Webber and others spoke to the crowd as people held up signs saying “Regime Change” and “Protect Mueller.”

Hundreds of similar rallies were staged around the country after President Donald Trump named Matt Whitaker, a past critic of the Russian probe, as an interim replacement for fired Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

Sessions had recused himself from overseeing Mueller’s investigation.
