Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell strongly praised the “sterling reputations” of Attorney General William Barr, Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein and special counsel Robert Mueller.
“You could not have asked for more objective individuals to be involved in this process, that we’ve all heard about on a virtual daily basis for two long years. I don’t want you to buy any notions that somehow these people are political hacks. They’ve never run for anything, they have sterling reputations,” McConnell told reporters today.
He said they would “not be able to sleep at night” if they didn’t handle this “extremely controversial and complex investigation in a straight-up way.”
McConnell warned that Democrats might try to “destroy their reputations” because they are unhappy about the results of Mueller’s probe.
