Supports of Mueller, free press protest on Rood Ave.

By  | 

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO/KJCT) -- More than 100 people were on Rood Avenue Thursday evening -- you may have seen them.

It was all to protest the possible firing of special counsel Robert Mueller and support freedom of the press.

If you've missed it, there have been rumblings that President Trump plans to fire Mueller who is leading the Department of Justice's investigation on President Trump's involvement with Russia. CNN's Jim Acosta also had his press pass revoked from the White House this week.

People at the protest tell us they're making sure people in power are held accountable.

"When they suppress one, they suppress all voices," Susan Cypher, a protester, said. "So that's what I want them to take away from this is that you must stand up, even if you're in opposition."

We're told there will be another rally if Robert Mueller does indeed get fired.
