Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) moved to have an amendment added to a resolution calling for Robert Mueller's report to be made public on Thursday, claiming that lawmakers should also have communications and testimony from Obama-era officials. 


Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.), attempted to get unanimous consent on a resolution calling for the release of the Mueller report. Paul said he would only support it, if it included the release of communications between several Obama-era officials and the former president on the Trump/Russia investigation.

"We need to know was there malfeasance? Was there misuse of power? Did President Obama's administration get involved in an election to infiltrate the Trump campaign to trap them?”  Paul said.

"What we need to discover and we do not yet know: Was President Obama involved?"

Klobuchar blocked the addition of Paul’s measure, thus blocking her own resolution from receiving unanimous consent.

Maybe she doesn’t want to see the full Mueller report that badly after all.
