Attorney General William Barr will allow select lawmakers to review a less-redacted version of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report in a secure area as soon as next week, according to the Justice Department.
Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd said in a letter to House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) and Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Thursday that Barr determined it “appropriate” to give the leaders of their committees as well as members of the “Gang of Eight” access to details in Mueller’s report that were redacted from the public version, including sensitive national security information and details that could impact ongoing criminal investigations.
The article goes on to state the following:
Boyd said that Office of Legislative Affairs would operate a secure reading room at the Justice Department between the hours of 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. next week for those lawmakers to review the report “in camera.” He also said the Justice Department would give lawmakers the chance to review the less-redacted report in the secure spaces on Capitol Hill the following week, when lawmakers return from a two-week recess.
Boyd said the less-redacted version would still restrict grand jury material, which is subject to federal secrecy rules in the absence of a court order by a judge. But it will allow members to view “all information” redacted to conceal details of ongoing investigations, sensitive national security information, and details on “peripheral third parties” that were not charged in the course of the probe.
Per @PaulaReidCBS, DOJ has invited the chairmen and ranking members of the House and Senate Judiciary committees, plus top leadership and Intelligence Committee chiefs to come review a “less redacted” version of the report at DOJ over the next 2 weeks. pic.twitter.com/zTOylO899S
