DOJ won't unseal Manafort records due to several "ongoing investigations"

The U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia argued in a court filing Monday that the Washington Post's request to release sealed and redacted records related to Paul Manafort's case should be rejected because of the existence of several "ongoing investigations."

"The redactions at issue were undertaken and approved recently — from December 2018, through March 2019. No material changes have occurred in these past months. Although the Special Counsel has concluded his work, he has also referred a number of matters to other offices. The ongoing investigations that required redactions — many of which were already being conducted by other offices — remain ongoing."

1. And I especially loved this part:

"The ongoing investigations that required redactions -- many of which . . . "

So there are "many" ongoing investigations that have already started . . . but an even bigger number overall . . .

2. And this is a good one, too, from your link:

Former federal prosecutor Gene Rossi tells Politico: "The Mueller report was just the first step. What these recent events show me is that Robert Mueller has created an army of acolytes and those soldiers are now embedded in the Justice Department, Eastern District of Virginia, Southern District of New York and Washington D.C. These acolytes are trained, they’re hungry and they’re determined."
