Senate Republicans block a Democratic push to release the findings of the Mueller report to the public just one day after Attorney General William Barr sent a summary to Congress detailing the key points.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell blocked the Democrats’ second attempt to do so suggesting DOJ officials should have time to adequately wrap up the investigation.
This comes just weeks after lawmakers in the lower chamber voted unanimously to release the full report.

On Sunday, Barr sent a four-page summary to Congress highlighting the key findings of the Russia probe centered around the 2016 election.
According to Barr, Mueller found no evidence of Russian collusion, and did not find evidence sufficient enough to prove obstruction of justice.
Barr has not said whether the full report will ever be released but has since reiterated the importance of transparency.
