Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) told WVLK Thursday that he doesn't think there is "any chance" Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation will end despite Matthew Whitaker, a critic of the investigation, taking over the probe after being tapped as acting attorney general.

"The President has said on multiple occasions the Mueller investigation should be completed. He wish it would happen sooner. But I don't think there's any chance that the Mueller investigation will not be allowed to finish."
