Mitch McConnell Just Blocked A Move To Release The Mueller Report

Mitch McConnell Just Blocked A Move To Release The Mueller Report


Senate Majority Leader Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) just blocked a measure by Sen. Chuck Schumer to make the Mueller report public.

Steven Dennis reported:



If the report is so great for Trump, why did McConnell block this measure?

The Republican cover story on the Mueller report is falling apart. There are obvious cracks appearing in the Trump PR scam of ďtotal exoneration.Ē If the report is so great for Trump and the Republican Party, why wonít they support releasing it to the public? If the report contains everything that Trump and the White House claim it does, Mitch McConnell should have never blocked the resolution and the vote should have been unanimous in support its release.

The reality of the information that is slowly trickling out does not match what Trump and Barr are selling. Mueller wrote his report with the full expectation that Congress would get it. Muellerís report is intended not to charge Trump with a crime, but to provide investigative evidence and the facts.

The Trump administration and their Republican Senate enablers are hiding the Mueller report because they donít want Democrats in the House and the American people to read the special counselís findings.

Mitch McConnel is helping Trump to hide the Mueller report because what it contains could lead to Republican defeat in 2020.

1. Because nothing says innocence

Like making the report secret.

3. Exactly!!! If it were above board, there would not be much to hide! The secrecy implies guilt IMO.

I never realized that the grand poobah of the Senate was more powerful than even the president.

wouldn't they want to make the entire report public ASAP?

23. No, they can't do that either, but DOJ could try.

The report is probably classified, so can't be released, but if the House pushes hard enough, they could release a redacted version.

12. Mitch is as big a villain as Trump is here, if not worse.

He has been shamelessly fucking with us for decades and getting away it. If there is one person I want to see behind bars and destroyed completely, it's him. I can't stand the miserable, old bastard.

26. If it truly exonerated him, they'd gladly release it. The RepubliCons want

people to trust them. They expect everyone to fall in lockstep and blindly accept all Trump's and their spin and blatant lies and to believe the words of a man, cherry picked to be atty general and put in control of Mueller's report because of his blatant proTrump can do no wrong bias.

Umm... No. If he and they are innocent, release the unedited non-'Readers Digest' version of the report NOW.

Innocent people do NOT act like this.

28. F YOU MITCH! However it does seem like Schumer should now start a measure

To release it directly to the Senate Judiciary Committee. Asking for Public Release immediately was probably never, ever going to happen w/Congress getting to see it first.

And the House should do the same, which I'm guessing they will.
