George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley warned the House Judiciary Committee not to sue the attorney general for access to the unredacted Mueller report during a hearing Wednesday on executive privilege and congressional oversight. Turley said they would definitely lose if they tried to get Attorney General Barr to release protected “6(e)” grand jury information.
“There’s no question that he cannot release this Rule 6(e) information,” Turley said. “You are heading into a world of hurt if you go to the D.C. Circuit and argue that you could order Barr to unilaterally release Rule 6(e) information.”
