Senate's McConnell To Declare 'Case Closed' On Mueller Report As Democrats Eye Contempt

The divided U.S. Congress’ fight over the Mueller report intensified on Tuesday as the U.S. Senate’s top Republican sought to shut the door on congressional probes.

Meanwhile, House Democrats pushed ahead with efforts to gather testimony from top administration officials.

U.S. Senate Leader Mitch McConnell planned to declare the "case closed" after Special Counsel Robert Mueller findings on Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

“This investigation went on for two years.

It’s finally over,” McConnell said in prepared remarks.

He called Mueller’s work “exhaustive” and chided elected officials for failing to unify in its aftermath.

Meanwhile, House Democrats prepared to meet with Justice Department officials on Tuesday over Attorney General William Barr’s failure to release the full unredacted Mueller report.
