McConnell blocks call for full release of Mueller report

United States Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (pictured) blocked a resolution by Senate Democrats calling for the full release of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report.

Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer called up the nonbinding resolution. "Whether or not you're a supporter of President Trump... there is no good reason not to make the report public," Schumer, who already called for the release of the report, said and added that the full release of the report is "a simple request for transparency. Nothing more, nothing less."

McConnell, however, blocked Schumer's request and said it is too early for the full release of the report because neither Mueller nor the Department of Justice is finished with their work. "The special counsel and the Justice Department ought to be allowed to finish their work in a professional manner," McConnell said.
