DOJ Turns In Full Unredacted Version Of Mueller Report Over To Federal Judge: Report
The full untouched version of the Mueller report has just been handed over to a federal judge.
It was reported on Monday that the Department of Justice handed over an unredacted version of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report on the Russia investigation to a federal judge.
According to Law.com, U.S. District Judge Reggie Walton of the District of Columbia will be conducting an independent review of the redactions that were made in the Mueller report by Attorney General William Barr and will be determining if he was being impartial.
“The court has grave concerns about the objectivity of the process that preceded the public release of the redacted version of the Mueller Report and its impacts on the department’s subsequent justifications that its redactions of the Mueller Report are authorized by the FOIA,” Walton wrote in a ruling earlier this month.
The judge insisted that he would “conduct an independent review of the unredacted version of the Mueller Report to determine whether it concurs with the Department’s determination that the redactions of the Mueller Report are authorized by the FOIA exemptions upon which the Department relies.”
