Judge Orders Release of Trump Obstruction of Justice Report

A judge has ordered the release of a Justice Department memo on the Russia investigation.

It was prepared for Attorney General William Barr during the investigation into whether President Trump obstructed justice.

Barr ultimately declared that Trump was not guilty of obstruction.

A government transparency group requested the memo back in 2019 under the Freedom of Information Act.

The Justice Department denied that request.

A judge now says the department must release the report for the sake of transparency.
