On Tuesday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell shut down a bipartisan bill to protect Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s
witch hunt job.
McConnell says he will not hold a floor vote on the bill even if it gets approved in the Senate Judiciary Committee.
McConnell said the bill is unnecessary because President Donald Trump will not fire Mueller.
“We’ll not be having this on the floor of the Senate,” McConnell said on Fox News.
His comments came amid widespread opposition to the bill among members of his caucus, with several GOP senators saying the bill is unconstitutional. Others said it’s simply not good politics to try and tell Trump what to do, likening the legislation to “poking the bear.”
