(ReliableNews.org) – In March, a federal court in Washington ruled the DOJ should turn over materials related to Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation to the House Judiciary Committee. The Trump administration appealed the ruling. Now, the Supreme Court has weighed in on the case.
On July 2, the high court decided to hear the Trump administration’s appeal. That means the documents at dispute will remain sealed until there’s a resolution that likely won’t happen until next year.
SCOTUS agreed today to weigh in on whether DOJ must disclose redacted portions of the Mueller report including grand jury transcripts & secret materials, but unless the court expedites the case we likely won't see a decision until 2021. From @AHoweBloggerhttps://t.co/4bos4SqOJH

The court’s decision means the chances of the case being decided before the election are slim. It would have to be expedited. Currently, the court has outstanding decisions in other cases that’ll determine whether or not Trump has to hand over his banking records and other financial information to Congress. If this ruling is any indication of which way the court is leaning. He might have favorable rulings there as well. But, really, it’s up in the air.
