Biden’s DOJ Strikes to Block Launch of Memo on Why Trump Was Not Prosecuted for Obstruction of Justice

The Justice Department under Attorney General Merrick Garland on Monday blocked the publication of a secret memo that then-AG William Barr reportedly relied on in deciding against prosecuting Donald Trump for obstruction of justice.

US District Judge Amy Berman Jackson ordered the memo to be published at the request of the Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics monitoring group in Washington (CREW) under the Freedom of Information Act.
