A group in River Falls held an "obstruction of justice" rally Friday, May 17 at the intersection of Cascade Avenue and Main Street in support of Congress's constitutional and legal authority to provide oversight of the executive branch of government.

"We believe that the Trump administration's continued refusal to respond to Congress's legitimate requests for subpoenaed interviews and documents to be a continuation of Trump's history of obstruction of justice," said rally supporter Dr. Jackie Brux. "In particular, members of Congress have the security clearance and the right to read the full, unredacted version of the Mueller report, along with the evidence that underlies it. Robert Mueller stated clearly that he believed he could not legally indict a sitting president, in large part due to the president's lack of opportunity to fully defend himself while in office.

Supporters also laid out their concerns about Russian meddling in the 2016 and 2018 elections, President Donald Trump's tax returns and national security clearance for Trump's appointees.
