The information was disclosed in response to queries from a federal judge in Washingon presiding over a related request by the House Judiciary Committee for the release of certain grand jury material, including redacted portions of Mueller’s report.
Chief Judge Beryl Howell on Tuesday had ordered the department to disclose said material from Mueller’s Russia investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Moscow. The Justice Department fought the case.
Howell had ordered the department to reveal which and how many FBI witness interview reports were turned over to the committee, as well as how many they planned to turn over, according to The Washington Post.
The judge also ordered that the DOJ state by Friday whether Mueller’s team had disclosed grand jury information when asking for help from other countries, saying she wanted to know if the department was withholding information from Congress that was already shared with foreign countries.
