BOOM! Dirty Cop Mueller Seeks Delay in Junk Russia Bot Case After Indicted Company Calls His Bluff
It’s been a rough day for Dirty Cop Robert Mueller.
First a federal judge browbeat the liberal Mueller team in court.
Judge T.S. Ellis lost his temper Friday and accused Mueller’s prosecutors of using the case against Trump’s former campaign chairman to oust the President.
Mueller has TWO WEEKS to hand over unredacted documents to the Ellis – the Senior United States District Judge of the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia.
Robert Mueller’s team is seeking a delay in the first court hearing in a criminal case against one of the companies charged in Mueller’s Russian bot investigation.
The company is requesting documents from the Mueller witch hunt team and now they’re balking.
They never expected one of the alleged Russian bot companies to call their bluff.
Robert Mueller is a national disgrace and will go down as a national disgrace.
Prosecutors from special counsel Robert Mueller’s office are seeking to delay the first court hearing in a criminal case charging three Russian companies and 13 Russian citizens with using social media and other means to foment strife among Americans in advance of the 2016 U.S. presidential election.
The 13 people charged in the high-profile indictment in February are considered unlikely to ever appear in a U.S. court. The three businesses accused of facilitating the alleged Russian troll farm operation — the Internet Research Agency, Concord Management and Consulting, and Concord Catering — were also expected to simply ignore the American criminal proceedings.
Last month, however, a pair of Washington-area lawyers suddenly surfaced in the case, notifying the court that they represent Concord Management. POLITICO reported at the time that the move appeared to be a bid to force Mueller’s team to turn over relevant evidence to the Russian firm and perhaps even to bait prosecutors into an embarrassing dismissal in order to avoid disclosing sensitive information.
On Friday, Mueller’s prosecutors disclosed that Concord’s attorneys, Eric Dubelier and Kate Seikaly, had made a slew of discovery requests demanding nonpublic details about the case and the investigation. Prosecutors also asked a judge to postpone the formal arraignment of Concord Management set for next week.
The prosecution team sought the delay on the grounds that it’s unclear whether Concord Management formally accepted the court summons related to the case. Mueller’s prosecutors also revealed that they tried to deliver the summonses for Concord and IRA through the Russian government, without success.
