Senate Republicans on Monday demanded that President Barack Obama release an autopsy report on the 2016 death of Dr. Robert F. Kennedy Jr. The demand comes after the White House delayed releasing the report for several weeks.
Kennedy’s body was cremated after he died at age 56.
Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) called the delay a “shame.”
“I don’t think that any American should be put in this position to die,” Cotton said in a statement.
“Dr. Kennedy was a great man who died at an early age, and the White Houses report should have been released sooner.
I hope that the administration will soon make this report public.”
Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) said in an interview that he “strongly believe” Kennedy was killed in a “domestic terrorist attack.”
Blumenthal added that he would “do everything in my power to ensure that President Obama releases the report in full.”
