The Russians sued Special Counsel and Democrat “fixer” Robert Mueller. And that poses a major problem for him.
Because unlike low-level Trump associates, the Russians aren’t intimidated by Mueller. They aren’t worried about an FBI raid of any law offices, or having 29 G-men wake them up at 2 am with SWAT vehicles shining lights on their residences.
With Mueller having no leverage against the Russians, he has only one defense: the Russians hacked me.
According to The Washington Examiner, Mueller claims the Russians hacked his team, then tweeted out altered versions of his files. All this to spread “disinformation”.
The allegation was made by Mueller’s team in a new court filing Wednesday in the case against Concord Management and Consulting, a Russian company owned by Yevgeny Prigozhin, a billionaire friend of Russian President Vladimir Putin. Concord Management helped finance a known Russian troll farm, Internet Research Agency.
According to Mueller, “certain non-sensitive” evidence given by federal prosecutors to the defense team was “altered” and posted online “as part of a disinformation campaign aimed (apparently) at discrediting ongoing investigations into Russian interference in the U.S. political system.” Mueller didn’t describe how the information was altered.
Interesting that Mueller claims he was hacked. If this is indeed the case, get your popcorn. Because if the Presidential Campaign of 2016 is any indication, the leaks will soon fly. And like in the campaign, the Democrats (Mueller in this case) will have no ability to stem the tide.
Lesson One: Don’t f*ck with the Russians…unless you’re Donald Trump!
But were they hacked? This next part of the story doesn’t pass the smell test.
According to the court filing, on Oct. 22, 2018, a newly created Twitter account, @HackingRedstone, said: “We’ve got access to the Special Counsel Mueller’s probe database as we hacked Russian server with info from the Russian troll case Concord LLC v. Mueller. You can view all the files Mueller had about the IRA and Russia collusion. Enjoy the reading!”
The tweet linked to a webpage located on an offline file-sharing portal containing folders with “non-public names and file structure of materials” produced to Concord’s defense team, said Mueller.
Roughly 1,000 of the total 300,000 files posted online matched files produced to Concord Management in discovery, the FBI found.
To me, this sounds like Mueller and team covering their asses. Because if you’re going to hack the Mueller team, why let people know? Why not just reveal the information, and let smart people figure it out with clues. Like “Concord LLC v Mueller”?
However, as the story continues, all the information exposed was “non-sensitive”.
“The fact that the file folder names and folder structure on the webpage significantly match the non-public names and file structure of the materials produced in discovery, and the fact that over 1,000 files on the webpage match those produced in discovery, establish that the person(s) who created the webpage had access to at least some of the non-sensitive discovery produced by the government in this case,” the filing said.
No wonder the FBI found “no evidence” that federal government servers or Mueller’s servers “fell victim to any computer intrusion.”
I suggest that Mueller and team leaked this information as an alibi for when the real truth comes out about what they tried to do to the Russians.
And the ruse gets even better when it’s tied to Facebook. Because we all know the Russians spent that $100,000 in political ads to influence the election, right?
According to a footnote, the files include images of political memes from Facebook and other social media accounts that were, as alleged in the indictment against Concord, posted and reposted online by Russian troll agency IRA. They were produced as nonsensitive to the defense, says Mueller, but many of the images are “presumably still available elsewhere on the Internet.”
So information “available elsewhere on the Internet” was exposed in the hack? Hmmm, ok Mueller, I get it.
But I also get that Mueller doesn’t want to provide the Russians or any other plaintiff against him with discovery. Because the cat jumps out of the bag when that happens. If Mueller divulges all the nonsense he’s collected and the methods, his case falls completely apart. The article explains:
The filing Wednesday by Mueller was in response to Concord Management’s request that the special counsel turn over “sensitive” information, so that it can be reviewed by the company’s officers and employees in Russia as the defense team prepares for trial.
Mueller’s team declined and said doing so “unreasonably risks the national security interests of the United States.”
There is no risk to national security that the U.S. isn’t already fighting. Mueller knows his case against the Russians is a ruse. But he likely didn’t expect Leftist to call him on it.
Ironically, it may be the Russians who undo Robert Mueller and the other Leftist swamp rats.
