The documents are heavily redacted. DOJ officials said there were five categories of information that needed to be kept sealed:

  • Witness identity
  • Road map for the investigation
  • Protecting confidential informants
  • Exposing the identity of law enforcement

A federal judge ordered the release of the documents because of the high-profile and unprecedented nature of the case.
