DOJ Asks To Drop Charges Against Russian Companies That Funded Troll Farm
 
The Mueller witchhunt indicted two Russian firms for interfering in the US election. But when the Russian firms unexpectedly displayed a willingness to defend themselves in court.

Quote:

federal judge on Monday to dismiss charges against two Russian firms indicted in the special counsel’s probe on charges that they meddled in the U.S. electoral process.

“It is no longer in the best interests of justice or the country’s national security to continue this prosecution,” Timothy Shea, the U.S. Attorney in Washington, D.C., wrote in a motion to dismiss charges against the firms, Concord Consulting and Concord Catering.

Citing national security concerns allows Mueller's team of zealots to avoid admitting they have no case. It's the same excuse Adam Schiff offered for not disclosing the so-called compelling evidence he claimed to have showing Russian collusion. :rolls

It's amazing that we've had this jammed down our throats for YEARS, yet they can't come up with any slam dunk cases...:no

No one from the Russian company ever made a personal appearance or actually accepted any subpoenas. They sent lawyers in to engage in a fishing expedition to find out how US intelligence was able to get information on internal Russian government decisions to undermine the election. And the end result is a bunch of Trump supporters taking the side of criminals from Russia who attacked the US. Nice job.

Excuse me counselor, but MANY if not ALL companies send their lawyers to court instead of actual company executives. There is NO legal requirement of company executives to attend a pretrial hearing.

Company executives have no business in the courtroom as they would add nothing to the proceedings and would most likely say something that could put their case in jeopardy. This is NOT an uncommon practice.

I would hope that being a "lawyer" you would be more familiar with this practice. :rofl

I understand completely. Concord management is a foreign corporation with no US presence. They sent lawyers to consent to jurisdiction, but it was a sham. They never accepted multiple subpoenas and refused to respond to discovery requests. And, if the court had returned a verdict against them, it would have been unenforceable. In the end, Barr's DOJ elected to dismiss the indictment against them. This proves nothing regarding the merits of the indictment.

Yep, the russians literally argued that the case must be thrown out because a ‘military attack’ by a ‘military intel agency’ is a sovereign act and is immune to prosecution. In other words, the hack was an ACT OF WAR and tRUmp and the rest of his cult are cheering this on.

Its also interesting that the corrupt AG Barr used the cover of an international pandemic to do this. Im sure he understood the optics here, whether it was to provide more cover for tRUmp or to try and play down how the US government got out-maneuvered by the Russians isn't clear though.

Right, it doesn't matter that Mueller's monkeys immediately petitioned the court for a delay after the Russian firms lawyer unexpectedly showed up to defend their clients. Oh no Mueller would have never indicted Concord unless they were guilty. ;) Just like the pointless indictments of Russian intelligence officers, Mueller and Weissman acted out of partisan hatred not the pursuit of justice. :thumbsup

Concord was indicted so they must be guilty. No American was indicted for conspiring or cooperating with the Russians. but the Trump administration is guilty. Indictment in an unwinnable case or no indictment all that matters is Orange man bad. :rolls

When are you going to stop subscribing to every anti Trump smear despite a lack of evidence? ;)
