Last week, the FBI did not comply with U.S. District Judge Reggie Walton’s order to give CNN and Buzzfeed News the memos from the agency’s interviews with White House senior adviser Jared Kushner in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.
Justice Department lawyer Courtney Enlow told CNN on Wednesday that “a member of the intelligence community” needs to review the memos and make certain redactions first.
The memos “will be released with the appropriate redactions” afterward, Enlow said without giving an exact timeline.
Walton ordered the FBI to hand over Mueller’s notes of witness interviews in CNN and Buzzfeed News’ lawsuit over the records. He gave the intelligence agency a deadline of January 17 to give all of the requested documents to the two news outlets.
