McConnell speaks on Mueller and gun restrictions
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says the president has a right to have the cabinet he wants, and he expects a permanent attorney general candidate to be nominated soon.
McConnell told reporters in Kentucky that he won’t bring a bill to the floor to protect the Mueller investigation, because he sees no evidence Mueller is in danger of being fired by President Trump.
And after the most recent mass shootings in Pittsburgh and Thousand Oaks, McConnell says it’s "highly unlikely" Congress would pass more restrictions on gun ownership.
"We see it over and over again, regretfully. And it seems that people who have these horrible inclinations seem to be incentivized by seeing someone else do it," he says. "But I think the restrictions on ownership of firearms for people who get them legally would have zero impact on that."
