WASHINGTON (AP) – A federal appeals court has ruled that the Justice Department must give to Congress secret grand jury testimony from special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation.

The ruling gives the House a win in a separation-of-powers clash with the Trump administration.

The three-judge panel said in a 2-1 opinion that House Democrats were entitled to the material as part of their ongoing investigation into President Donald Trump’s conduct.
