A court ruled on Friday that the Department of Justice must release a memo advising then-Attorney General Bill Barr in 2019 that former President Donald Trump did not obstruct justice.
The District of Columbia Court of Appeals follows a review of the Muller report sent to Congress in March 2019.

“The letter was sent to Barr from the Justice Department’s Office of Legal Counsel and another department official after Special Counsel Robert Mueller delivered his report which investigated then-President Trump’s potential election interference and obstruction of justice,” Fox News wrote.
“Barr sent an overview of the Muller report to congress on March 24, 2019, stating that the report didn’t reach a conclusion on if then-President Trump obstructed justice, and said that there was insufficient evidence to make such a determination on his own,” it added.

Trump has also vowed a response to the FBI’s raid on his Mar-a-Lago home.
“A major motion pertaining to the Fourth Amendment will soon be filed concerning the illegal Break-In of my home, Mar-a-Lago, right before the ever important Mid-Term Elections,” Trump wrote.

The ruling comes as Trump faces ongoing attacks from the left following the FBI’s raid.
He continues to fuel speculation of a 2024 White House comeback regardless, with more Americans likely to back him following the latest FBI action.
The news couldn’t get much worse for Democrats as the party faces sweeping potential losses ahead of the November midterms.
