Nearly 400 person local protest in Rockville organized by the Liberty Bell Movement intended to support the Special Counsel’s investigation. It’s part of the Civic Action’s #NotAboveTheLaw nationwide protests that will be triggered to take place if and when the Trump administration fires Mr. Rosenstein or Mr. Mueller or otherwise impedes the Special Counsel’s investigation.
Basic information is included below.
We also held a pro-active rally to protect the investigation, on President’s Day weekend. If MoveOn announces the trigger before 2pm EST, then it will take place
at 5pm that day. If announced after 2pm then it will be at noon the next day.
