Protesters took to the streets in thousands of towns and cities last night to protest the firing of Jeff Sessions and the (probably illegal) appointment of Matthew Whitaker as Attorney General.  In our area, hundreds of people gathered in front of Faso’s office in Kingston, and smaller gatherings occurred in Rhinebeck, Hudson, Beacon, Kinderhook, Delhi, to name a few.

Here is some local coverage:

Two other notable articles were published yesterday.

One goes into detail about why the appointment of Whitaker to AG is unconstitutional and illegal.  And it was co-written by Kelly Anne Conway’s husband:

The other article discusses the midterms and why they were a much larger and more significant victory than some observers had previously reported.

Keep resisting…
