Thursday, April 4: Locals Join Trump is Not Above the Law National Day of Action; Demand Barr Release Mueller Report

Washington, D.C., Protest Will Be One of More Than 300 Demonstrations Nationwide

WHAT: Activists will join a nationwide day of action in response to U.S. Attorney General William Barr’s failure to release the report of Special Counsel Robert Mueller and underlying evidence to Congress by the April 2 deadline set by six U.S. House of Representatives committee chairs.

Activists will rally and demonstrate in front of the White House on Thursday as part of a national day of action to ensure that the U.S. attorney general releases the full report to the U.S. House Judiciary Committee and as much information as possible to the general public.

Americans across the country have once again signed up for “Nobody Is Above the Law” protests nationwide at 5 p.m. local time. Barr – with the support of President Donald Trump – has released only a four-page summary memo of Mueller’s more than 300-page report. Barr has not committed to releasing the full report and underlying evidence. His letter from March 29, to the Judiciary Committee gave his office the sole leeway to redact and obscure large portions of Mueller’s findings from Congress and the American people.

Majorities of Americans believe the full Mueller report should be made public. Protesters will demand full transparency so that Congress can conduct responsible oversight of the executive branch.
