holy fuck you guys, it might actually happen
Has to go through the upper chamber
420 release it?
Honestly i'm shocked it's a unanimous decision, I thought there'd be at least a handful of idiots wanting to withhold it.
Wanting to withhold it basically admits you think the President is guilty of the accusations at hand.
"I don't see a need to hold this for a vote. Obviously we'll make sure the report gets put out there; this would just be a waste of our time so I'm not scheduling it"
I woulden't be so optimistic. You have to question if there's anything dirty on it if it's so unanimous. Republicans could have went through it and ultimately said "Okay, this is all smoke, there's no point trying to hold it back, that would just make our actions look like a cover-up"
Holy shit, I hope its good.
The reason they'd vote for it is because it gives them license to edit and selectively quote and release it. It's still 'releasing it to the public' if they release only the parts that don't condemn the President.
If Trump actually gets impeached then I'm still flipping that damn pancake. It's not like he'll get a 2nd term anyways.
On the bright side, it shows Trump that even his side is no longer willing to go all in to defend him
FYI this is no binding so it's not like the DOJ will be forced to release it. It seems to be just pressure, though I wouldn't doubt the House GOP to be happy if Mitch blocks this to say "Look we are bipartisan we tried!!!!!"
Almost had a heart attack thinking this was a Badage Boys thread, ho boy. I'm surprised all of the Republicans voted for this too
The Boys will be back in 16 days, I'm sure of it.
Lindsey Graham just blocked it.
What a nice democracy you’ve got there
The Senate was meant to give each state an equal voice, as a relic from the time when the US was more like the EU then a centralized republic, should have been abolished after the Civil War.

what the actual fucking fuck fuck, how is this not an onion article
“I have absolutely no idea why a member of this body would object to this basic level of transparency whatever their concern on other issues.”
Take a wild fucking guess, Chucky.
If they have even one half of one percent of one functional neuron in their heads they'll realize its political suicide to vote against this bill, because in doing so, they would be incriminating themselves as complicit with whatever's in it...and given the House has a Dem majority, the bill would have passed it anyway.
Graham can't do shit if a staffer runs a copy of Mueller's report to any Democratic Senator or House rep's office to be read aloud on the floor; such speech is privileged with legal immunity.
If the Department of Justice does not functionally serve justice, it can be circumvented. The truth cannot be stopped.
How does this block the measure? He's only one Senator.
Under Senate rules, any one senator can try to pass or set up a vote on a bill, resolution or nomination. But, in turn, any one senator can block their request. Schumer fired back that Graham appeared to be using a "pretext" for trying to block the Mueller resolution.
But there were two investigations into Clinton you slimy rat fuck
Trump now retconning this into 4d chess
This is not a game.
