Mueller’s Attempt to Hide Evidence Just Got Torn Apart by Attorneys for Alleged Russian Troll Farm

You really have to give these RUSSIAN! trolls and their attorney credit. They’re exposing Mueller’s willingness to wallow in a gutter of lies and deceit to pervert the justice system in order to cover for the Democratic Party and The Empty Suit’s corruption.

Mueller’s Attempt to Hide Evidence Just Got Torn Apart by Attorneys for Alleged Russian Troll Farm

On Thursday, attorneys for Concord Management and Consulting LLC timely submitted their 13-page memorandum in opposition to Mueller’s requested order. And things started off interestingly atypical of most legal writing. The document begins:

Having produced not one iota of discovery in this criminal case, the unlawfully appointed Special Counsel requests a special and unprecedented blanket protective order covering tens of millions of pages of unclassified discovery. Having made this special request based on a secret submission to the Court and a hysterical dithyramb about the future of American elections, one would think that the Special Counsel would cite to case holdings that support this remarkable request.

*

The memo continues, “But no, instead, the Special Counsel seeks to equate this make-believe electioneering case to others involving international terrorism and major drug trafficking, and relies only on irrelevant dicta from inapposite, primarily out-of-circuit cases. In short, fake law, which is much more dangerous than fake news.”

While making their case for why Mueller’s blanket protective order should not be granted, Concord Management cites the wide-ranging nature of the request itself. Noting, “The Special Counsel seeks the unprecedented process of prohibiting defense counsel from sharing or discussing any discovery with any co-defendant—including the only person affiliated with Concord named in the Indictment—unless those individuals come to the United States to become hostages in this political game of tit-for-tat.”

*

In the memo, Mueller and his team are accused of playing fast and loose with the facts by citing to cases that only “stand for the unremarkable proposition that protective orders can be used when there is a large volume of sensitive information.” Concord Management’s memo notes that the exceedingly limited protective orders granted in said cases bore absolutely no relationship to the blanket order suggested by Mueller. In fact, in one of Mueller’s citations, a blanket order was requested and denied.

Dubelier also accuses of Mueller lying to the court about what both sides have agreed to so far. After this filing, though, it’s safe to say that no accusations of agreement are likely to be flung anytime soon.

Mueller is showing how ridiculous his investigation has become.

@Steven D
He's the cleaner, from what I've read around here. He'll get his wish, even if it's unlawful. Courts don't care. Look at the SCOTUS ruling regarding the election fraud of 2000. They put special words in there so that the ruling was a one time thing. Not being an attorney to begin with, and feeling like I have a worm eating my brain due to shingles, I don't know the correct verbiage, but I see the turd having his request granted.

He'll get his wish — (a special and unprecedented blanket protective order covering tens of millions of pages of unclassified discovery) — even if it's unlawful.

Beyond unlawful, it's extreme and preposterous, and is certainly grounds for appeal. A judge that granted a request like that would look mighty tainted.

Mostly, I'd like the world to see a display of extreme judicial corruption in a case pertaining to the Russian Hoax. We all need to be on the same page going forward.

because they weren't in business during the time of the election. In fact the case should never have been able to get as far as it has since more than 60% of the ads were placed after the election was over and most of them were targeted at Russians who are living in America.

I'll look to see how some left-ish sites cover this. Normally they deliberately take everything out of context so that people won't bother looking for the truth.
