Mitch McConnell is probably the most un-American politician in existence, and at a time when the country is divided into utter turmoil, what this nation really needs is someone with a backbone who isn’t driven by money and power.
After Mueller released his report last Friday, Democrats immediately got to work on legislation that would make the report public. That legislation was blocked today by the senate majority leader because he doesn’t want the America people to know what the president has been up to.
Yesterday, Trump claimed Mueller’s report exonerated him totally and completely, found no wrongdoing whatsoever, held him and his team entirely blameless.
Today, Trump and McConnell are doing all they can to hide that report from you.

McConnell excused his heinous actions by saying:
“The special counsel and the Justice Department ought to be allowed to finish their work in a professional manner. To date, the attorney general has followed through on his commitments to Congress. One of those commitments is that he intends to release as much information as possible.”
Leader McConnell just blocked a resolution that called for the release of the full Mueller report. It passed the House 420-0. The American people deserve to see Special Counsel Mueller’s findings in his own words. Republicans must not hide this report.

Democrats are furious that one man can decide for the entire country what should or should not be known about Donald Trump.
McConnell just blocked a resolution in the Senate to support the release of Mueller’s report. Because Mitch and Trump are trying to bury the contents of the report. #ReleaseTheFullReportNOW

Chuck Schumer said this on the House floor:
“Whether or not you’re a supporter of President Trump … there is no good reason not to make the report public. It’s a simple request for transparency. Nothing more, nothing less.”

People everywhere took to Twitter to express their grievances. Here are some of those messages.
Release the Mueller report. Let the American people judge the facts for themselves.https://t.co/UXWGBrHaRE

Y'all want to know why @senatemajldr McConnell is unwilling to release the full report?
Because it's gonna tell how Russia compromised the GOP too.
Keep the report buried, keep the GOP's grip on power.
Share this and break their attempt to silence truthhttps://t.co/TmTjYQZ9YS

Can't wait to support McConnell's eventual Democratic opponent in 2020. We need to make sure we find a great candidate. Time to rid our government of this electoral cancer, this political nihilist, this demon Galapagos tortoise.

If Trump is innocent, @senatemajldr , why did you block efforts to protect Mueller and why did you block efforts to release the Mueller report?
You have a lot of explaining to do.

Diseased Tortoise Mitch McConnell has blocked a push for legislation that would call on the DOJ to release the Mueller report to the public.
If the report does nothing more than vindicates and exonerates everyone, why is the Traitor blocking it?
Because it does no such thing.
