Judge keeps second part of DOJ memo on Mueller report about Trump secret, for now

Source: CNBC

A federal judge declined Monday to order the Department of Justice to release the second part of a memo about the Mueller report written to former Attorney General William Barr, which argued that there was not enough evidence to prosecute then-President Donald Trump for obstruction of justice.

Judge Amy Berman Jackson said in a ruling that she wanted to allow the DOJ time to follow through on its appeal of her earlier decision ordering the release of the entire memo by the department's Office of Legal Counsel.

"While there may be some additional public benefit in revealing the contents of Section II, the Court will not deny the Department the opportunity to challenge its ruling in order to advance that interest at this time," Jackson wrote in her new ruling, issued in U.S. District Court in Washington.

Last month, the DOJ released part of the memo, which was written in March 2019, but kept its second section secret.

1. Trump is out of office. Everything related to the Mueller Report should be released.

Including an unredacted report. Anything that truly affects national security or could identify CIA sources should be redacted, but I suspect there is very little of that because Mueller was told not to go after the financial ties to Russia.
