Is McConnell Helping Trump Stop Mueller?

Sen. Chris Coons (D-DE) gave his opinion on how Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell blocked a vote on a bill of protection for FBI special counsel Robert Mueller.

Coons wondered why McConnell would strike down the bill because President Trump “has a long history of doing and saying unpredictable things.”

CNN’s John Berman then asked, “[D]o you think Mitch McConnell, majority leader, is running interference for the president?”
“Yes,” Coons responded, “I see no other justification for refusing to bring forward such a simple bipartisan bill that takes existing Department of Justice regulations and strengthens them by putting them in statutes.”
