In the expensive and largely impotent Special Counsel investigation of ‘Russian’ interference in the 2016 presidential election, Robert Mueller’s team has been secretly rewriting the justice system, and during the investigation, has collected a ‘nude selfie.’
The group has fought the Special Counsel, previously pointing out that special investigators have refused to comply with any demand for discovery, and that Mueller’s team instead decided to a request “an unprecedented blanket protective order” that would cover tens of millions of pages of unclassified discovery.
Concord Management and Consulting LLC’s attorney Eric Dubelier made the nude selfie claim “near the end of the defendant’s latest filing in support of their motion to compel discovery.”
Could the manner in which he collected a nude selfie really threaten the national security of the United States?” Dubelier asked out loud.
The motion continues to trash the unprecedented outrage that Mueller’s team is perpetrating:
“In this first-of-its-kind, make-believe case the Special Counsel now seeks to completely obliterate any remaining rights of Concord to defend itself, and in typical fashion provides only completely misleading case authority for the remarkable proposition that he should be able to continue to whisper secrets to the Court.
“Since the Special Counsel has already gotten away with this once as he notes in his Motion, this Opposition is likely fruitless, but object we must both for Concord and every other defendant to whom the Special Counsel believes the laws and rules of the United States no longer apply to his novel adventures.”
“At issue here is the fact that Mueller is attempting to have ex parte–one party only–discussions with the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia regarding continued discovery in the case.”
Dubelier blasted the fact that “The Court will recall that from the outset the Special Counsel maintained that there was no classified information in this case,” but has refused to turn the information over.
“In fact, the Special Counsel continues to concede that the discovery in this case contains no classified information. Instead the Special Counsel asks the Court to accept secret ex parte communications from him to support the unprecedented argument that the Defendant itself cannot view millions of pages of non-classified discovery.
“This request is just another squinch to support the novelty of this entire proceeding. Undersigned counsel has been unable to identify any reported case where a corporate defendant was denied access to discovery, as the Special Counsel seeks here. Similarly, there is no reported case to support the Special Counsel’s instant motion.”
Such a veil of secrecy, Dubelier notes, “is not how criminal cases proceed in the United States.”
He’s right. The tactics being used by the Special Counsel, many people agree, are outrageously erroneous.
A number of citizens argue that it is way past time to pull the plug on Mueller, and start an investigation into his actions.
