SENATE MAJORITY LEADER Mitch McConnell on Tuesday urged his Democratic colleagues to move on after the conclusion of special counsel Robert Mueller’s two-year Russia investigation, declaring “case closed.”

In a speech from the Senate floor, the Kentucky Republican said Mueller became a “secular saint” for Democrats “destined to rescue the country from the inconvenient truth” that President Donald Trump was elected. McConnell mocked Democrats for “working through the five stages of grief” since last month’s release of the 448-page redacted report.

“There’s this outrage industrial complex that spans from Capitol press conferences to cable news,” McConnell said Tuesday. “They’re grieving that the national crisis they spent two years wishing for didn’t materialize. But for the rest of the country, this is good news.”
