Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says legislation to protect Special Counsel Robert Mueller will never see the Senate floor.
The bill is being pushed by Democrats and even some establishment Republicans.
According to Politico:
“Mitch McConnell is just saying no.
There will be no Senate vote on protecting special counsel Robert Mueller, no vote on clawing back billions from a new spending law and probably no vote on a war authorization, the Senate majority leader said on Tuesday.
Even as the Senate Judiciary Committee is set to advance a bill that would shield the special counsel from removal by President Donald Trump’s administration, McConnell says it won’t ever see the Senate floor.
The Senate majority leader said on Tuesday that the bill is “not necessary” and that Trump would never sign it.”
