McConnell Blocks Resolution To Make Full Mueller Report Public

Senate Majority Leader (R-KY) on Monday blocked a resolution brought about by Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) to release the full report from Special Counsel Robert Mueller. Schumer asked for an unanimous, non-binding resolution, the same one that passed the House 420-0 on Friday.

"Whether or not you're a supporter of President Trump or not, whatever you feel, there is no good reason not to make the report public," Schumer said on the floor of the Senate.

"Now that President Trump supports public release of the report, there's no good reason for anyone to object to this request," Schumer said. "It's a simple request for transparency. Nothing more, nothing less." 

McConnell disagreed with the resolution, saying Attorney General William Barr is working with Mueller to determine what can be made public and what cannot, The Hill reported. 

"The special counsel and the Justice Department ought to be allowed to finish their work in a professional manner," McConnell said. "To date, the attorney general has followed through on his commitments to Congress. One of those commitments is that he intends to release as much information as possible." 

This is the second time Schumer's request has been denied. The first one was by Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-SC).

Under Senate rules any member can bring about a vote on a bill, resolution or nomination but it only takes one objection to stop the vote.
