DOJ Won’t Let Stone See Unredacted Mueller Report

Courthouse News reports:

The government said Tuesday it has no plans to turn over the full report produced by special counsel Robert Mueller to longtime Trump associate Roger Stone. Stone had asked for the unredacted report earlier this month, saying he needs it for his defense.

During a short status conference this morning in Washington, Assistant U.S. Attorney Jonathan Kravis called the request for the portion of the report concerning Stone out of bounds. That part of the report contains redactions indicating harm to an ongoing matter.

“The government does not intend to provide that portion of the report to counsel for Mr. Stone absent an order from the court to do so,” Kravis said. Kravis said the government has already turned over underlying material contained in the report concerning credibility issues with potential government witnesses.
