No Bar to Disclosure: Grand Jury Secrecy, Executive Privilege, & Mueller Report
On April 5, ACS and Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) hosted a discussion of whether these justifications should operate as categorical bars to releasing the Report and related evidence.
The American people want to see the Mueller Report and the evidence underlying it, and Congress needs to review the Report and supporting material to fulfill its oversight duties. Yet Attorney General Barr has said he will send only a redacted version of the Report to Congress later this month. Potential justifications for limiting disclosure include grand jury secrecy rules and executive privilege.
