McConnell Welcomes End to Mueller Probe, Calls for 'Openness and Transparency'

By    |   Friday, 22 March 2019 06:08 PM

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell expressed relief that special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation has ended, asking for "openness and transparency" moving forward as Department of Justice officials prepare to make the report's findings public.

"I welcome the announcement that the special counsel has finally completed his investigation into Russia's efforts to interfere in the 2016 elections," said McConnell, a Kentucky Republican. "Many Republicans have long believed that Russia poses a significant threat to American interests. I hope the special counsel's report will help inform and improve our efforts to protect our democracy.

"The attorney general has said he intends to provide as much information as possible. As I have said previously, I sincerely hope he will do so as soon as he can, and with as much openness and transparency as possible."

Attorney General William Barr received Mueller's report on Friday, and he wrote to Congressional leaders that he might be able to brief them on the findings as soon as this weekend.

It's still unclear when the report's conclusions will be made public.

"I am grateful we have an experienced and capable attorney general in place to review the special counsel's report," McConnell said. "Attorney General Barr now needs the time to do that."
