A Federal Judge Just Ordered The Justice Dept. To Make Public Jeff Sessions’ Clearance Form

On Monday afternoon, a US District Court judge in Washington ordered the Justice Department to make public a page of Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ clearance form, on which he was meant to disclose any contacts with Russian officials, CNN reports.

The judge’s directive, issued Less than 24 hours before Attorney General Jeff Sessions is due to testify before Congress, also gave the Justice Department and the FBI one month to search for any records of White House chief of staff Reince Priebus’ reported outreach to the FBI requesting the Bureau refute reports of communications between Russian officials and members of the Trump campaign.

Judge Randolph Moss’decision came in response to Freedom of Information Act requests from American Oversight, a nonprofit that says it relies on FOIA to investigate the Trump administration, according to CNN.

The order gave the government until July 12 to produce Sessions’ SF-86 form, a security clearance questionnaire. Additionally, the government has until July 12 to complete a search for any records of Priebus’ requests to the FBI. Moss ordered a status conference the next day, July 13.

Sessions has come under heavy scrutiny for not saying in his confirmation hearing that he had meetings with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak in the lead up to the 2016 election.

Former FBI Director James Comey told senators in a closed session that Sessions had a previously undisclosed meeting with Kislyak, who is a key figure in the Russian investigation.
