Organizers say the naming of acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker is a "deliberate attempt to obstruct the special counsel's investigation".
How many people will show up remains to be seen. "Whitaker is recused from all aspects of the Special Counsel's probe, and ensure that the Department of Justice safeguards the integrity of the Mueller investigation", said Rep. Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland, the ranking Democrat on the House Oversight Committee.
The crowd in New York City's Times Square chanted "Hands off Mueller" and waved various anti-Trump signs.
Protesters listen to Attorney Shelly McBride speak November 8 outside the Monroe County Courthouse during a protest against the firing of Attorney General Jeff Sessions. It's not clear whether his connections to Sam Clovis, who if friends with Whitaker and has been questioned in the Mueller probe, and with the president would be enough to force his recusal.
Trevor Potter, a former Republican commissioner on the Federal Election Commission who now leads the Campaign Legal Center, which advocates for more transparency in elections, said the question of whether Whitaker should recuse himself depends on Clovis' status in the Mueller investigation.
"There is a very specific scope to this investigation", Whitaker said.
The Saturday Night Massacre refers to an incident in 1973 when President Nixon ordered his attorney general and deputy attorney general to fire independent special prosecutor Archibald Cox, who was investigating the Watergate scandal.
The White House confirmed that Christie was there Thursday and met with Trump adviser Jared Kushner to discuss prison reform, according to a NJ Advance report.
The investigation has so far produced 32 criminal charges and guilty pleas from four former Trump aides.
And a source close to the President told CNN that the idea of Whitaker ending or suppressing the Russian Federation probe is not an option as of now.
Some protesters said they fear Trump is close to causing a constitutional crisis. "If you have somebody that you trust that is saying you need to meet with this individual because they have information about her, you would take that meeting". Whitaker wrote. "If he doesn't, then Mueller's investigation will eventually start to look like a political fishing expedition".
Sessions' dismissal sent alarm waves through Washington and the rest of the nation, since Whitaker has called for limitations to the Mueller investigation, as well as its defunding.
Key Democrats said it would be premature to begin impeachment proceedings, adding that such a conversation should take place after special counsel Robert Mueller has completed his inquiry. Many of them reflect statutory requirements imposed by Congress, and several may well set substantial restrictions on Whitaker's eligibility to supervise the Mueller investigation due to his prior positions and relationships.
Ben Clements, an attorney who serves as chairman of Free Speech for People, said Trump forced out Sessions because he wouldn't protect him from Mueller's probe. Whitaker accompanied the tweet with his own comment to his followers: "Worth a Read".
In an interview with a conservative talk radio host, Whitaker said there was "no collusion" between Trump's presidential campaign and Russian Federation, a key question being examined by the special counsel's office.
