Like many of the American people, Mitch McConnell has had enough of the Mueller investigation. During a recent interview, he suggested that now that the IG report is out, it’s time for Mueller to wrap it up.
Mitch McConnell: ‘Why Can’t the Mueller Investigation Finally Wrap Up?’
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) suggested Friday that special counsel Robert Mueller should conclude his investigation into collusion between Russia and Trump campaign officials.
“What I think about the Mueller investigation is, they ought to wrap it up. It’s gone on seemingly forever and I don’t know how much more they think they can find out,” McConnell said in an interview with the Washington Examiner.
“If the IG is through, why can’t the Mueller investigation finally wrap up?” the Kentucky lawmaker added.
McConnell previously signaled support for the Russia probe and blocked a vote on legislation in April to protect Mueller from being fired.
The 76-year-old lawmaker told the Fox News Channel it was “not necessary” to vote on the bipartisan effort.
“There’s no indication that Mueller’s going to be fired,” McConnell said to Neil Cavuto.”I don’t think the president’s going to do that and just as a practical matter, even if we passed [the bill], why would he sign it?”
The Russia probe was a sham designed to make Democrats feel better about losing and to ultimately reverse the 2016 election. It’s time for it to be over. They have produced nothing.
