'March for Truth' protests draw thousands of Americans to the streets

"The president works for the American people, and not for a foreign entity around the world", said Linda Sarsour, an organizer of the march and a co-chair of the Women's March on Washington in January. The event is part of a series of "March for Truth" events around the country Saturday to demand impartial investigations into possible Russian interference into the election.

Protestors are also demanding the president release all of his tax returns and clarify business interests.

The protests come ahead of testimony by former Federal Bureau of Investigation Director James Comey to the Senate Intelligence Committee scheduled for Thursday, June 8 at 10 a.m.

Nearby another group gathered to blast Trump's decision to pull out of the Paris accord. There's too much partisanship, he said, adding that what matters is putting America first. A number of high-ranking officials in Trump's administration have resigned or been fired due to undisclosed contacts with the Russian government, and many others remain under investigation.
