TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — More than 100 people showed up to the Tippecanoe County courthouse to protest in response to President Trump's firing of Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Thursday. 

The demonstration was part of a nationwide movement. 

The group, No One is Above the Law said it was focused on accountability.

Matt Whitaker, the interim attorney general has said in the past he thinks the Mueller probe into Russian election meddling has gone too far. 

Some believe that's the reason Sessions was fired. Group members agree saying Whitaker is "a partisan loyalist who has shown intent to limit the scope of the Special Counsel's probe."

During the rally signs said things like "Whitaker Must Recuse" and "Protect Mueller." The group also held flashlights, the said it was to shine a light on President Trump's corruption.

Matthew Gyure said he believes protests to be an effective way to get a message across.

"Judging from how many people showed up, this was planned only a day ago after Jeff Sessions was fired. So to see this many people mobilize in one day i think goes to show how much this affects everyone," said Gyure.
