In the D.C. District Court, the House Judiciary Committee filed a brief in support of their application for a judge to release certain grand jury materials relevant to the Russia investigation. The brief argues that the grand jury materials are critical to developing a full understanding of the events described in the Mueller Report and are particularly crucial to determine whether President Trump provided false statements to Mueller’s office in his written answers to the special counsel’s questions. The committee also claims that the information might be relevant to the House’s investigation of “the President’s solicitation of Ukrainian interference in the 2020 election.” The court filing is available here and below.
