Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ), who is currently rankling his fellow Republicans by holding up judicial nominees to force a vote on a bill to protect Special Counsel Robert Mueller, expressed his disbelief Friday that his GOP colleagues could be so “sanguine” about the future of Mueller and his investigation.

“I don’t know how we can be so sanguine about what’s going on over at the Department of Justice in terms of the Mueller probe,” Flake said. “It’s important to protect it.”

So far, Flake has frozen the process for 21 judicial nominees, including controversial nominee Thomas Farr. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) seems to be showing no signs of folding to the retiring senator’s demands.
