The Justice Department has started releasing new internal records from Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.
The electronic privacy information center, a government transparency advocacy group, sued to make the documents public and released them Thursday.
The center received four pages of memos about budgeting for the special counsel’s office.
The memos show how Mueller’s office put in regular budget requests and submitted spending plans in June 2017, June 2018 and, to secure funds for its wind-down, in early April 2019.
The DOJ did not release 13 additional pages that would apply to the document request, citing the deliberative process privilege of the executive branch.
