DOJ pushing for rule change adding 50 years to release of grand jury records

The Department of Justice (DOJ) is pushing to add a 50-year delay to when courts can consider releasing federal grand jury records, apparently seeking to follow through with recommendations that were made by the Trump administration.

The recommendation was made last year in a memo from senior DOJ lawyer Jonathan Wroblewski to New York State appellate Judge Michael Garcia, who serves on the advisory committee for criminal rules, The Washington Post reports.

This potential move has been criticized as it would add a significant degree of secrecy to federal courts and investigations.
