Special Counsel Robert Mueller is trying to limit pretrial evidence being handed over to a Russian company he indicted in February over alleged meddling in the 2016 presidential election, according to Zero Hedge. He’s scrambling as his indictments are unraveling, raising major questions about his “evidence.”
Earlier this week, Mueller asked U.S. District Judge Dabney Friedrich to grant a protective order to prevent the delivery of a trove of evidence to lawyers for Concord Management and Consulting, LLC, one of three Russian firms and 13 Russian nationals he indicted earlier this year. Mueller didn’t expect the defendants to appear in court, and now he’s frantic. The indictments were a publicity stunt used to bolster his investigation, but they’re all ham sandwiches.
Mueller’s office argues that it would be a national security risk to provide the evidence, which he claims could be leaked to the public or be given to hostile actors. Rather than hand over the non-existant evidence showing collusion between President Donald Trump‘s campaign and Russia, Mueller is trying to suppress it.
Concord Management has decided to push back, setting up a big fight that could have a huge impact on the democrats “Russia collusion” theories.
Many also argue that Mueller’s indictment was nothing more than a stunt to further promote the collusion narrative. Now that the defendants are fighting the indictment, Mueller is scrambling to keep his “evidence” concealed.
Last month, Mueller filed for continuance in the high profile trail, but the Trump-appointed judge rejected the arguments.
Now, Mueller is asking the judge to conceal documents and records from the group that he claims broke the law and meddled in the election.
Of note, Facebook’s Vice President of advertising, Rob Goldman, admitted in February that most of the Russian content online came after the election and sought to sow discord — not promote Trump over Hillary Clinton.
As reported by Conservative Daily Post, Mueller has not produced a shred of evidence against Trump after more than a year of investigating, which is why his office has been spreading lies and misinformation to harm the president.
The old adage says the best predictor of future behavior is past behavior, and Mueller’s previous actions are downright frightening and highly illegal.
The special counsel’s office is obviously doing everything imaginable to avoid handing over the evidence is claims to have, which raises serious questions about Mueller’s indictment and claims of collusion.
Time will tell what happens next in the trail, but Mueller fighting to prevent evidence from being handed over raises serious questions.
