The Greeting

Friday, Nov. 8, 2018

Good morning, Berkshire County. There's serious news from the Trump administration: Attorney General Jeff Sessions resigned at the president's request and was replaced by Matthew Whitaker, Sessions' chief of staff. Whitaker previously has expressed doubt about the ongoing Russia probe, and many fear his installment was a tactic to derail the investigation being conducted by Robert Mueller.

There was swift and immediate reaction in Berkshire County, where hundreds gathered in protest.
