About 200 protesters assembled at Baltimore’s City Hall on Thursday evening to listen to speeches by local activists and state and federal officials as part of the nationwide “Trump is Not Above the Law” rally.
The protests came after President Donald Trump reportedly forced out Attorney General Jeff Sessions and tapped Matt Whitaker, a U.S. Justice Department official and frequent critic of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Trump’s ties to Russia, to serve in an acting capacity.
On Thursday night, Rep. Elijah Cummings, who’s likely to chair the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee in January, told the crowd Whitaker “must recuse himself.”
Here are our photos from the rally.
