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.

  1. Beautiful photos, such good work! Thank you to the organizers! I was inspired by Elijah’s speech and by all the speakers!

  2. Mr Giordano thanks for the coverage but please please revise the caption you have about my affiliation. I was there MCing the rally as the CoChair of Baltimore Women United the all volunteer org I co founded after the trump election. My org that I work for (community Development Network) is a nonprofit and should not be affiliated with this event. Please change this. Thanks. I did introduce myself as representing BWU and continued to talk about it throughout the rally never mentioning CDN.
