 Anti-Trump Protesters Gather Across US, Abroad
Protests were underway Saturday in more than 135 cities in the U.S. and around the world to demand an impartial investigation into any potential collusion between President Donald Trump's campaign

and Russia to influence last year's election in Trump's favor.
The "March for Truth" protests were organized by a national coalition of 17 activist groups, including the Women's March and the Progressive Democrats of America.
The coalition is demanding that an independent commission be established to oversee an impartial probe and that ongoing congressional investigations be "properly resourced and free of partisan interests."
Both houses of Congress are investigating potential Trump campaign links to Russia and Moscow's meddling in the election. In addition, the Justice Department appointed former FBI Director Robert Mueller as a special counsel to probe whether Trump campaign aides illegally colluded with Russia.
