In an interview with Axios, a former DOJ official claims it will be difficult for the Justice Department to deny members of Congress all of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigatory files on Donald Trump after he submits his final report.
Speaking with Mike Allen, Matt Miller, a former Justice Department official under Obama who now works as a legal analyst for MSNBC, said that Mueller’s files will contain a treasure trove of information.
“[It’s] not just the Mueller report, whatever that is, that’s relevant. It’s also all the underlying evidence he collected,” Miller explained.
Referring to an FBI investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton that turned up no criminality, Miller stated, “[The] FBI set a precedent in the Clinton case by turning over nearly the entire case file to Congress within three months of the investigation closing.”
“Now that that precedent has been set, [there’s] no good argument for not doing so here,” he added.
Miller also claimed there will be plenty to pore over, citing a massive number of FBI interviews conducted with associates of Donald Trump.
“All the FBI 302s (interview records),” Miller speculated. “Just imagine how many news cycles are in there.”
