Graham blocks resolution calling for Mueller report to be made public


Graham blocks resolution calling for Mueller report to be made public
By Jordain Carney - 03/14/19 03:55 PM EDT


Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Thursday blocked a resolution calling for special counsel Robert Mueller's report to be made public after it passed the House unanimously.

Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) asked for unanimous consent for the nonbinding resolution, which cleared the House 420-0, to be passed by the Senate before they leave town for a weeklong recess.

"There is no good reason, no good reason that the special counsel's report should not be made public. The American people are overwhelmingly for the report being made public. They have a right to see it. No one should stand in the way of that," Schumer said from the Senate floor.


But Graham, a close ally of Trump's who chairs the Judiciary Committee, objected after Schumer refused to amend the House-passed resolution to include a provision calling on the Justice Department (DOJ) to appoint a special counsel to investigate DOJ misconduct in the handling of the investigation into 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton's email use and the Carter Page Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act applications.

2. Instead of amending some other, unrelated bill, Sen. Graham

Why don't you create a bill all on its own calling on the Department of Justice to appoint a special counsel? That way, you can be sure that it's truly the sense of the Senate to do that, instead of trying to force this in through the back door of another, more popular resolution.

3. Does not matter.

The House will just bring him in to testify. Lindsey is as nuetered as Nunes now.

He can hold things up but can not stop them.

6. Lindsey is a blank...you fill in the blanks. Hijacking this piece of important legislation ...

relevant to current events has nothing to do w/ HRC, and which the 16 already held hearings etc. found nothing at all re. HRC in the past. He's throwing up roadblocks in a feeble attempt to block the report(s) from being made public so he must know something already and not letting the rest of us know about it. Scumbag.

9. Will Russia mail the 'kompromat' on Graham to the Washington Post.

He's down to kissing so much ass there must be something, something exceptional.
