A federal judge on Monday approved special counsel Robert Mueller’s request to grant immunity to five witnesses so they can testify against former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort.

U.S. District Judge T.S. Ellis said that he would unseal documents containing the identities of the witnesses, according to Talking Points Memo.

Mueller’s team submitted the request for immunity last week and asked that the identities of the potential witnesses not be revealed because they had not yet been publicly linked to the case. Ellis ordered the special counsel on Monday to make public a list of about 30 witnesses.
