The U.S. Supreme Court on Wednesday blocked the disclosure to a Democratic-led House of Representatives committee of grand jury material redacted by President Donald Trump's administration from former Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report documenting Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.
The justices put on hold a March ruling by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, which had decided that the materials must be disclosed to lawmakers.
The administration now can formally appeal that ruling, meaning a final resolution may not be reached until after the Nov. 3 presidential election, in which the Republican president is seeking a second four-year term.
