Earlier this week, Senate Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell said the case was closed on the Mueller Investigation. So, it came as a shock to McConnell when the Senate Intelligence Committee announced a subpoena for Donald Trump Jr.
The most startling part of all this is that Republicans are in control of the Senate Committee. McConnell appeared on Sean Hannity’s show on Thursday night to assure conservatives that there is nothing to worry about.
The Senate Majority Leader continued, “I think that this is going to have a happy ending. I understand the president’s frustration here. But I think that this is just a blip, I think that the case is closed. I think that the controversy has been concluded.”
“That is my message to the public, that is our view that the case is closed and it is time to move on. And I believe when the Senate Intelligence Committee finally does report, which I think will not be too far down the road from here, they will reach the very same conclusion.”
President Trump was angered by the subpoena against his son. He told reporters yesterday, “[F]rankly for my son, after being exonerated, to now get a subpoena to go again and speak again after close to 20 hours of telling everybody that would listen about a nothing meeting, yeah, I’m pretty surprised.”
