Why is Mueller Afraid of Transparency?

Two types of nocturnal creatures hate and fear the light.

Bugs and Team Coup.

The DOJ and FBI have tried to classify and hide everything about Spygate. Especially if it reflects badly on them. And while Mueller’s people leak constantly to the media. They do it on their own terms and resist transparency.

Special counsel Robert Mueller is fighting a drive by media organizations to unseal secret court filings relating to searches and surveillance efforts undertaken as part of the investigation into possible coordination between the Trump campaign and Russia in the 2016 election…

Last month, five news organizations — POLITICO, The Associated Press, The New York Times, CNN and The Washington Post — asked Jackson to unseal an unknown number of warrants and similar orders obtained during the course of the investigation.

Now this is a case of trying to kill the golden goose. But greed is in the nature of the media. If the stuff Mueller gave them has been so profitable, think about how much they could cash in from more of the good stuff.

But why is Mueller fighting it?

The news outlets suggested that deletion of some details could accommodate any concerns about particularly sensitive aspects of the filings, but Mueller’s team said Wednesday that such an alternative would not prevent damage to the ongoing investigation. Indeed, the prosecutors said that revealing even bare-bones information about when warrants were issued could inflict grave damage on the inquiry.
