“To say that it’s over, case closed, when we haven’t even begun to investigate the report and Mueller hasn’t testified – and it’s who Mueller knows what the report says, not Barr’s spin on that report – to not see the underlying documentation and how deeply Russia affected things and what they might do in 2020,” Schumer said.
“For McConnell to do this?” Schumer said. “For Trump to do this? It is despicable.”
