Trump says he will let Justice Department decide handling of Mueller report

They cite a Twitter account that surfaced in October 2016 purporting to have a stolen copy of evidence provided to the company.

Of the 300,000 documents released, an Federal Bureau of Investigation analysis found that only 1,000 of the documents were real, with most of the Mueller documents being "images of political memes from Facebook and other social media" that were posted during the 2016 election by Russian social media troll farm the Internet Research Agency (IRA), which Concord has been accused of funding.

Some "non-sensitive" material produced by special counsel Robert Mueller's team in the discovery process for his case against alleged Russian trolls appears to have made its way online last fall, part of a "disinformation campaign aimed (apparently) at discrediting ongoing investigations into Russian interference in the us political system", according to a new court filing by the special counsel.

The prosecutors' filing said the matching files included images of political memes from Facebook and other social media accounts used online by the Internet Research Agency, many of which are presumably still available elsewhere on the Internet, but not with the unique identifiers used in materials turned over by prosecutors.

Whitaker's comments were the first time a top government official with knowledge of the investigation has publicly said it is in the final stages. Some of the documents were also fraudulently created, seemingly to discredit the Mueller investigation.

President Donald Trump will leave it up to the Justice Department, and whoever might be running it, to decide what to do with special counsel Robert Mueller's report when the probe is finished, he told The Daily Caller Wednesday.

And they more than held their own. "I would say to especially young girls, follow your dreams", Coyne Schofield said. Schofield didn't win, but she finished less than a second behind McDavid, which is pretty darn impressive.


While prosecutors did not accuse Concord of having leaked the materials, they did say that a request from the company asking for access to sensitive new evidence sent to Russian Federation "unreasonably risks the national security interests of the United States".

The information came from a filing involving Concord Management and Consulting LLC, which is controlled by so-called Putin chef Yevgeny Prigozhin.

At least now we know where the attacks on Mueller are coming from - Russian Federation.

In the indictment, prosecutors said Russian defendants adopted false online personas to push divisive messages, traveled to the United States to collect intelligence and orchestrated political rallies while posing as Americans.

On Oct. 22, 2018, @HackingRedstone tweeted a link to hundreds of thousands of files as well as sent a direct message to a reporter stating that the material was gained through hacking a Russian server with access to the materials shared with Reed Smith, the legal representatives for Concord. Prigozhin was one of the 13 people indicted.

If it were Russians who spread the evidence online, they also likely won't be punished, prosecutors said. They have asked the judge not to let Concord distribute the materials electronically to people in Russian Federation.
