Senate Republicans Block Bill to Protect Special Counsel Mueller

HeadlineNov 15, 2018

In Washington, D.C., the Republican-controlled Senate on Wednesday blocked legislation aimed at protecting special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe. The bill, brought by Republican Senator Jeff Flake of Arizona with support from Democratic Senator Chris Coons of Delaware and other Democratic senators, was blocked by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who argued the investigation was not under threat. Flake vowed to withhold his vote on judicial nominees if Republican leadership continued to block a vote protecting Robert Mueller.
