BREAKING: Prosecutors say they concluded parts of Michael Cohen spin-off investigations and agree to unseal new campaign finance information.
Judge Pauley writes in an order that he will unseal that material tomorrow at 11 a.m.
"Accordingly, the Government is directed to file the July 15, 2019 status report and the Materials on the public docket on July 18, 2019 at 11:00 a.m."

As a reminder for what was found in the last unsealed batch of search warrant materials.

“The campaign finance violations discussed in the materials are a matter of national importance. Now that the government’s investigation into those violations has concluded, it is time that every American has an opportunity to scrutinize the materials.”
- Judge Pauley
One important point to add:
Judge Pauley rejected the government's request for "limited redactions... to protect third-party privacy interests" on public-access grounds. He added most of those third-party actors publicly known.
