Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer is trying to quickly pass a resolution urging the public release of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report, but he’s being blocked by Republicans.
Schumer said Monday that since President Donald Trump supports releasing the report, “there’s no good reason for anyone to object.”
Shortly after the Senate opened, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell objected to Schumer’s request. He says the Justice Department needs more time to wrap up Mueller’s two-year probe.
The House unanimously approved the resolution last week.
Trump said earlier Monday that the release of Mueller’s report “wouldn’t bother me at all.”
