Reuters reports U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on Monday blocked a second attempt by Democrats to pass a measure to have the Justice Department publicly release Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report on Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.Earlier this month, the House of Representatives voted 420-0 in favor of making the report public. On Sunday, Attorney General William Barr informed Congress that Mueller's report concluded that President Donald Trump did not collude with Russia to influence the 2016 election.

Barr released his own summary of the report’s major findings on Sunday but said he needed more time to review the report to determine what could be made public. A Justice Department official said on Tuesday that Barr plans to release a public version in “weeks, not months.” Congressional Democrats have demanded Barr deliver the report to them by April 2.
