(CNN) — Sought-after parts of the Mueller investigation may be made public this week, thanks to a federal judge who’s taken an unusual approach in former Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn’s case.

Judge Emmet Sullivan of the U.S. District Court in D.C. set a Friday deadline for the Justice Department to make public unredacted portions of the Mueller report that pertain to Flynn, plus transcripts of Flynn’s calls with former Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak, and of a voicemail during which someone connected to Trump referenced Flynn’s cooperation.

Taken together, the judge’s orders look like a shortcut to transparency in a moment of executive branch stonewalling.

Each of the documents, once made public, could bring revelations about Mueller’s work. The transcripts alone could answer lingering questions about what exactly Flynn said to the Russians that caused so much concern among U.S. intelligence and how a message that factored into the obstruction of justice probe into President Donald Trump played out.

3. Caveat...

"So far, the Justice Department hasn’t pushed back on the judge’s demands. But it could before the May 31 deadline."
