Cover ArtEPIC v. Department of Justice: The Mueller Report chronicles the efforts to obtain a full account of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. EPIC, a DC-based non-profit, filed the first lawsuit in the country for the release of the full and unredacted Mueller Report and obtained a newly redacted version in early May 2019. EPIC is now challenging the redactions in federal court.

"EPIC v. Department of Justice: The Mueller Report is an essential guide to the legal arguments about the redactions, the dispute between the Attorney General and the Special Counsel, and EPIC's request for the Mueller Report and other information about Russian interference in the 2016 Presidential election."

Read the book the Attorney General wouldn't! More great work from @EPICprivacy.”

The redacted Mueller report is rich in information, but legislators would very likely benefit enormously by knowing more about a number of things from the pages that have been kept from Congress: how Moscow devised its attempts to penetrate the Trump campaign and the tactical benefits it expected to gain from different parts of the operation, what actions Americans took wittingly and unwittingly to support Kremlin front organizations and WikiLeaks, and why members of the Russian delegation at Trump Tower were not charged with violations of the Foreign Agent Registration Act. Those are just a few of the many pieces missing from the puzzle.”

EPIC's case for the release of the full Mueller Report should help shed further light on the Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.”

The public has the right to know the nature and extent of outside interference in the 2016 elections.”

EPIC’s case for the release of the Mueller Report makes clear the ongoing importance of the Freedom of Information Act.”

Lisa Rosenberg
Executive Director, Open The Government

I urge Attorney General Barr - in the interests of the integrity of the Justice Department, in the interests of the American people, in the interest of the rule of law - to publicly release the full Mueller report. Any attempt to hide swaths of the Mueller report from public scrutiny will only fuel suspicions that President Trump's Justice Department, which represents the United States, is playing the role of President Trump's defense team. We all deserve better.”
