Senate Dems demand Trump obtruction memo from DOJ

All 11 Democratic members of the Senate Judiciary Committee are demanding that the Justice Department turn over to Congress an internal legal memo related to former special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation that is said to have cleared then-President Trump of criminal wrongdoing.

The group sent a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland on Wednesday requesting an unredacted version of the Office of Legal Counsel (OLC) memo as the Department of Justice (DOJ) fights against its release in court.

"Although these memos predate your confirmation as Attorney General, the Department you now lead bears responsibility for ensuring that OLC is not misused to justify harmful policies or inappropriately conceal information from Congress," the letter reads. "In the interest of transparency and given the March 24, 2019 OLC memo’s apparent role in misleading the Committee about Mueller’s findings, the Committee requests that you produce the full memo without redactions. Please provide the memo, or your legal justification for withholding it, to the Committee by June 29, 2021."
