Robert Mueller’s team came up with a new excuse as to why they don’t want to cough up over 70 discovery requests by indicted Russian company Concord Management & Consulting.
Mueller’s liberal hack lawyers claim Russia could use the evidence they gather through discovery to spy on the witch hunt and American citizens.
That’s right. Mueller is arguing a case he brought to court is now a threat to his own investigation.
Associated Press reported:
Special counsel Robert Mueller’s team is worried that Russian intelligence services will use a criminal case in Washington to gather information about its investigation.
Prosecutors are asking a federal judge to impose limits on the information that can be shared by attorneys for Concord Management and Consulting LLC. The company is accused of funding a clandestine Russian social media operation aimed at interfering in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.
So far, only one defendant, Concord Management and Consulting LLC, has appeared in the case, and prosecutors say they’re worried information they provide to the company’s attorneys could end up in the hands of other defendants or Russian spy agencies.
Mueller’s team says disclosure of the information could compromise American sources and methods for monitoring foreign interference operations.
Prosecutors also want to bar other defendants from accessing the materials turned over in the case until they appear in a U.S. court. That includes Yevgeny Prigozhin, a wealthy businessman who controls the company. He has ties to Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Indicted Russian company, Concord Management and Consulting wants to play ball and blasted Mueller in court recently, telling the Magistrate Judge, “the government has indicted the proverbial ham sandwich.”
Concord is seeking all of Mueller’s evidence of the so-called conspiracy as a part of their discovery rights.
Mueller’s PR stunt is backfiring and it’s glorious.
Former US Attorney Joe DiGenova recently blasted Mueller for indicting a case prematurely.
They [Mueller] indicted a case prematurely against people they thought would never show up from Russia and then one of the Russian companies hired lawyers and sent them to court to say ‘we’re here and we wanna plead not guilty and we want a lot of discovery on your criminal case against us,” DiGenova said.
This isn’t the first time Mueller’s lawyers went to great lengths to evade discovery requests in their own case.
Mueller has been begging a federal judge to indefinitely delay the junk Russia bot case since he rolled out an indictment prematurely.
Last month, lawyers defending Concord Management, sparred with Mueller’s liberal hacks in court.
Concord Management’s lawyers began by accusing Mueller’s team of ignoring over 70 discovery requests.
Rather, Mueller’s team offered to give Concord Management’s lawyers a massive amount of social media data from those dangerous trolls who sought to influence the US election and the majority of it is in RUSSIAN.
It got worse…
Mueller’s lawyers admitted that they don’t even have English translations for the Russian social media posts.
Dirty cop Mueller is not prepared to go to trial which is why his corrupt lawyers are once again using the old excuse discovery could ‘compromise sources and methods.’
