(Newser) – A federal court in Washington can release lists of various court actions, such as search warrants, in the Mueller investigation, the Justice Department has agreed. On Tuesday, Chief Judge Beryl Howell of the DC District Court gave the department three weeks to make "a few" redactions connected to cases in progress. CNN had asked the court to make the lists public. The release would provide a broader look at special counsel Robert Mueller's court requests when compiling evidence for his investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 US election. Complete details on the court filings might not be revealed. In his final report, Mueller said his investigators had received nearly 800 search, seizure, and communications warrants from federal courts in the investigation.
