DOJ Charges Russian Woman With Interference in Midterm Elections… She’s Not Even in U.S. Custody

Here we go again!

The Justice Department indicted a Russian woman for meddling in the 2018 midterms–and she’s not even in U.S. custody.

Another Russian who won’t see the inside of a courtroom…

The DOJ charged Elena Khusyaynova, 44, a St. Petersburg, Russia-based accountant with conspiracy to defraud the U.S. in a criminal complaint released Friday.

Politico reported:

Elena Khusyaynova, 44, a St. Petersburg, Russia-based accountant, was charged in a criminal complaint with conspiracy to defraud the United States for taking part in a scheme to spend in excess of $10 million since the beginning of the year on targeted social media ads and web postings intended “to sow division and discord in the U.S. political system.”

Khusyaynova, who is not in U.S. custody, allegedly works for a Russia-based firm that special counsel Robert Mueller’s office indicted in February for alleged interference in the 2016 election.

The DOJ is making up more criminal charges…gotta keep “Russia” in the headlines.

The alleged “crime” that really isn’t a crime: she conspired to impair the function of the FEC in investigating foreign involvement in domestic activities.

A Facebook page named “Bertha Malone” was created and published 400 posts–wow how will our country ever recover from something so devastating?

A few Twitter accounts were created to “post controversial social and political topics using a perspective that they believed would resonate with a conservative audience in the U.S.”

And how is this even remotely criminal??

The ‘conspiracy against the U.S.’ charge against Elena Khusyaynova is the same one being challenged by Trump-appointed judge Dabney Friedrich in the Concord Management case.

As TGP reported Thursday evening, U.S. District Judge Dabney Friedrich, a Trump-appointee, is having very serious doubts about Mueller’s garbage case against Russian company Concord Management.

Indicted Russian company Concord Management filed a motion to have Mueller’s case dismissed and raised arguments in court earlier this week.

Judge Dabney Friedrich is having serious doubts about the ‘conspiracy against the U.S.’ charges against Concord Management brought forth by the Special Counsel.

In a new court order Thursday, the Judge said Concord Management’s conduct was not in violation of the law.

We are now seeing people charged with conduct that isn’t criminal.

Trial lawyer Robert Barnes said this is very dangerous.
