As of April 23, 2021, the sealed indictments keep coming, and some-to-many have likely been served by the US military per the discussion between Senator Graham and then-Judge Kavanaugh during his confirmation hearing. I give some of my analysis in my West Wing article.

The report below is from PACER, the US Federal Court online docket. Sealed criminal cases (indictments) have been filed at 65 times the normal rate since October, 2017. Well over 200,000 sealed criminal cases have been filed over that period. In the reports, sealed cases are below the non-sealed cases.

I discuss the numbers, link to more reports, consider the implications, and mention how to get a PACER account on my main sealed indictment page.

The only changes I've made to the report itself are to remove my login and user IDs. In this version, I have removed styling, PACER menus, etc. If you're using JavaScript, I link to the rawest form of the report that I saved: Back to this page for now; loading raw link....
