The US Justice Department on Monday released previously redacted sections of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into the alleged Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, a privacy group and a Buzzfeed reporter revealed on Monday.

The sections, published on the eve of the US election, explain why the special counsel's office did not charge WikiLeaks, its founder Julian Assange, or Roger Stone, a former adviser and longtime ally of US President Donald Trump.

According to documents shared by Buzzfeed reporter Jason Leopold and nonprofit research center Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC), Mueller's office did not charge WikiLeaks, Assange, or Roger with "computer-intrusion conspiracy" due to lack of sufficient "admissible evidence" to secure a conviction.
