DOJ Strikes Deal to Hand Over Some Mueller Investigation Evidence

The committee and William Barr have been locked in a fight over access to Congress of redacted portions of Mueller’s report.

House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler said the Justice Department has agreed to begin turning over some information the panel had subpoenaed related to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.

“The department will share the first of these documents with us later today,” Nadler, a New York Democrat, said in a statement Monday. He added that all members of the committee will be able to view the materials. “These documents will allow us to perform our constitutional duties and decide how to respond to the allegations laid out against the president by the special counsel.”

The committee and Attorney General William Barr have been locked in a fight over access to Congress of redacted portions of Mueller’s report, which was released on April 18, as well as the underlying evidence. Nadler’s announcement comes a day before the House is scheduled to vote on a resolution authorizing Nadler and his committee to initiate civil legal action against Barr for his refusal to turn over Mueller report-related material.
