THE FORCED RESIGNATION OF US. ATTORNEY GENERAL JEFF SESSIONS today inspired Sen. Mazie Hirono to write: "In a direct move to undermine the Mueller investigation, Donald Trump forced Attorney General Jeff Sessions to resign. I am concerned that the Mueller investigation will now be overseen by Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker – someone who has raised some troubling views about the investigation.
Jeff Sessions
     "The President's actions today make it even more critical that Congress passes bipartisan legislation to protect the Special Counsel's investigation.
     "Our next Attorney General must not only commit to the completion of the Special Counsel's investigation without interference, but also to preserve the independence of the Department of Justice and its law enforcement agencies, enforce our nation's laws fairly, and safeguard the civil and voting rights of all Americans."
     The special council is investigating Russian meddling into the U.S. elections, and has led to indictments and guilty pleas by former Trump staff members and campaign associates.

FORMER GOV. NEIL ABERCROMBIE – who advocated for the regional disaster shelter and gym in Kaʻū and held his own inauguration celebration in Kaʻū when he was elected governor in 2010  – wrapped up the election eve Democratic Rally at Moʻoheau Bandstand. He urged everyone to get ready for the elections in 2020 to "return this country to the basic values that made it what it is and what the Democratic Party has always stood for."
     He talked about history, of how Democrats have "delivered for the people time after time after time. We're going to do it, now we're going to keep on doing it… the Democratic party leading the way in providing opportunities for the diversity that defines us instead of dividing us – that has been the fundamental foundation rule of the Democratic Party throughout its history in the state of Hawaiʻi."
     Abercrombie spoke of the late Patsy Mink: "There isn't a day goes by that I don't think about Patsy Mink… She had four strikes against her: she was Japanese, she was female, she was smart, and she married a haole… Every young woman… every single girl in Hawaiʻi and across the country can thank Patsy Mink for making them full and total human beings, by the discrimination they had against them. That's what we represent."
     He spoke of Gil Kahele – state Sen. Kai Kahele's father – and how he recalled Kai running around like Kai's daughters were at the rally. "One of the best things I ever did in my whole political life was to name his dad to be a senator, because I don't think we might have had Kai otherwise."
