The Washington Examiner reports:
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on Monday blocked a move by Senate Democrats to call on Attorney General William Barr to release special counsel Robert Mueller’s full report on the Russia investigation. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., called up the measure but McConnell, R-Ky., shot it down.
McConnell said it’s too early to call for the full release of the report because Mueller is not finished with the work, nor is the Department of Justice. Barr told Congress he is working with Mueller to determine how much of the report can be released without jeopardizing other investigations associated with the special counsel probe.
