Senate Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky commented on a wide range of topics as he spoke to reporters in Frankfort Friday morning.
The Kentucky Republican expressed confidence that the Russia investigation will be allowed to run its course, saying President Trump has never signaled to him that special counsel Robert Mueller could be fired.
McConnell also predicted that Matthew Whitaker’s stint as acting attorney general will be short. McConnell said he thinks the president will “pretty quickly” send the Senate a nominee for a new attorney general.
He also says he will work in a bipartisan way with the now Democratic House of Representatives, following last week’s election.
Speaking on mass shootings and the possibility of gun control, the senator says he very much doubts that any legislation will pass that puts any restrictions on gun ownership.
