Supreme Court Cancels Dec. 2 Argument on Mueller Documents

Source: Bloomberg

(Bloomberg) -- The U.S. Supreme Court dropped a scheduled Dec. 2 argument over confidential materials from Special Counsel Robert Muellerís Russia investigation, after President Donald Trumpís administration said it didnít object to a delay sought by House Democrats.

The court was planning to consider whether the Trump administration would have to turn over redacted parts of Muellerís 448-page report and the underlying grand jury transcripts and exhibits. Democrats said they needed the materials as part of an impeachment investigation.

But Joe Bidenís victory in the presidential election sapped the case of much of its significance. Once Biden takes office in January, the Justice Department could agree to turn over the materials, or the House Judiciary Committee could abandon the probe. Either move would probably prompt the high court to drop the case altogether.

The Supreme Court temporarily blocked lawmakers from seeing the documents in May and then agreed to hear the Trump administrationís appeal in July. Those moves ensured Democrats wouldnít get pre-election access to the materials.
