Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., on Thursday blocked a House-passed resolution calling for special counsel Robert Mueller's report to made public – angered by the refusal to include a provision calling for a probe of the Justice Department's handling of Hillary Clinton-related investigations.

"There is no good reason, no good reason that the special counsel's report should not be made public," Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., said on the Senate floor, The Hill reported. "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."

But Graham, who chairs the Judiciary Committee, objected after Schumer refused to amend the non-binding resolution to include a provision calling for a special counsel to investigate Justice Department misconduct.

"Was there two systems of justice in 2016? One for the Democratic candidate and one for the Republican candidate?" Graham asked. 

Under Senate rules, any one senator can try to pass or set up a vote on a bill, resolution, or nomination. But, in turn, any one senator can block their request, The Hill noted.
