McConnell Blocks Resolution to Make Mueller's Report Public

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell  blocked a resolution  Monday that called for the details of Robert Mueller's Russia investigation to be made public.

The House  overwhelmingly approved  that nonbinding measure earlier this month.

The Washington Post said  McConnell cited national security concerns as a reason for his decision.

As Newsy's previously reported, it's up to Attorney General William Barr to decide how much of Mueller's confidential report is released to Congress and the public.

In a summary of the report released Sunday, Barr said his goal is  to release as much  of Mueller's findings as he can.

Though he did note he's required to remove secret grand jury material and any information that's relevant to ongoing investigations.

But Democratic lawmakers still want the full report.  In a letter sent to Barr  on Monday, six House committee chairs said his summary was "not sufficient" and requested he release all of Mueller's findings by April 2.

Meanwhile, President Trump  told reporters  it "wouldn't bother [him] at all" if Barr ultimately released the entirety of Mueller's report.
