(CNN) – Sen. Lindsey Graham on Thursday blocked a resolution calling for the public release of special counsel Robert Mueller's report.
The House earlier unanimously approved a measure calling for Mueller's report to be made public, in a 420-0 vote.
But the resolution, which would not have any binding legal effect, failed in the Republican-controlled Senate. Graham, who is the Judiciary Committee chairman, objected to the measure, demanding that it be amended to call for a new special counsel.
“It’s now time to have a special counsel look into all things 2016, not just Trump,” he said.
Graham wants a new special counsel to investigate the FBI probe into the Clinton email server and how a special surveillance warrant against Trump aide Carter Page was carried out.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer won't allow the measure to be amended.
