Not for the first time, Senate Republicans following Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell have denied Democrats from trying to pass a measure that would coerce the Justice Department into making special counsel Robert Mueller’s report open to the public.
After overrunning the House of Representatives with an unchallenged vote of 420-0 to release the report, hitting a brick wall has Democrats miffed.
“There is no good reason not to make the report public,” Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer complained.
While Attorney General William Barr has claimed that he will be as transparent as possible, McConnell believes that rushing things will only lead to poor results.
“It’s not unreasonable to give the special counsel and the Justice Department just a little time to complete their review in a professional and responsible manner,” McConnell stated.
