Mitch McConnell Blocks Resolution to Release Full Mueller Report

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell blocked a non-binding resolution calling on Attorney General William Barr to release the full Mueller report, Axios reported Monday. The bill passed unanimously in the House and was backed publicly by many prominent Democrats. And while President Trump said releasing the full report, which was delivered to Barr this weekend, “wouldn’t bother me at all,” McConnell argued that publicizing the report in its entirety could raise security issues. Barr’s four-page summary of the report has been released publicly, but Democrats argue that it’s necessary to view the document in its entirety.
