The hashtag “#ProtectMueller” quickly became the most trending topic on Twitter on Thursday evening as swarms of activists came together in Washington, D.C., New York and Boston, as well as other cities around the U.S.

Numerous events organized by the activist group Public Citizen took place in smaller cities in nearly every state protesters pushed back what many believed to be an effort by the president shut down the Russia investigation.

Sessions is due to be replaced by Matthew Whitaker as an acting attorney general while a permanent replacement is confirmed by the Senate. Whitaker in the past has been a staunch critic of the Mueller probe.

Photographs of events shared on Twitter pictured hundreds of protesters assembled in numerous locations hoisting up signs reading “Protect Mueller” and “Nobody is above the law.”

The outbreak of activism came just hours after Arizona Republican Senator Jeff Flake, himself a vocal critic of the president, swore to force a vote in the Senate on a bill that would work to codify Justice Department regulations making sure that only a senior DOJ official could remove the special counsel.

Trump has frequently denounced Mueller investigation for months, labeling the probe which has engulfed several former members of his campaign with criminal charges as a “witch hunt” led by “angry Democrats.”
