Judge Wants to See Unredacted Memos Directing Mueller Probe
Judge T.S. Ellis III gave Justice Department attorneys two weeks to provide him with complete copies of two memos written by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, one from May 2017, and the other, from August, that lay out the scope and ground rules for the investigation.
[...]
For instance, [US Deputy Solicitor General Michael Dreeben] said, "in the May 17 order, because of the implications involving people under investigation who may never be charged, we could not convey everything there."

Other specifics not yet seen in the memo were conveyed in face-to-face meetings with Rosenstein, however. [Judge T.S.] Ellis again insisted on the need for records to prove the prosecutor's intent.

"We don't want anyone with unfettered power. That includes you and the other attorneys and special counsel and that also includes the president of the United States," Ellis said.

Is it animal, vegetable, or mineral?
