Republicans Block Senate Democrats’ Move On Making Mueller Report Public

WASHINGTON, March 25 (Reuters) – U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on Monday blocked a second attempt by Democrats to pass a measure aimed at prodding the Justice Department to release to the public Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report on Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

Earlier this month, the House of Representatives voted 420-0 in favor of making the report public. On Sunday, Attorney General William Barr informed Congress that Mueller had concluded that President Donald Trump did not collude with Russia to influence the outcome of the 2016 election.
