A federal appeals court unanimously ruled that the Department of Justice must release some of the redacted parts of Robert Mueller’s special counsel report.
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit ruled in favor of Buzzfeed that the DOJ must release the pages of the Mueller report that discussed individuals who were investigated by Mueller but not charged.
“The district court determined that the privacy interests of the individuals whose information DOJ withheld under the exemption were not outweighed by the public’s interest in disclosure of the redacted information,” Judge Karen Henderson said in the court’s opinion
Buzzfeed said it believed that Donald Trump Jr., the son of former President Donald Trump, was investigated by Mueller for possible campaign finance violations but was not charged. It is unclear who else might be named, but it is expected that among them are former aides to the 2016 Trump campaign.
Buzzfeed previously filed a Freedom of Information Act request for the information. The DOJ argued that releasing that information “could reasonably be expected to constitute an unwarranted invasion of personal privacy.”
