Judge Rejects Mueller’s Request For Delay In Russian Troll Farm Case


Here’s the thing: this “Russian troll farm” case is minor — it’s all about $100K in Facebook ads.

Do the Democrats really want us to think that their candidate was so weak that she was beaten by $100k in ads? Seriously?

Outside influencers and foreign agents have long been welcomed by the Democrat party.

How many hundreds of millions has George Soros spent to influence foreign elections?

Soros once said that removing President George W. Bush from office in 2004 was the “central focus of my life.”

The left shrugged at the millions in foreign contributions to elect Barack Hussein Obama. I documented thousands in donations. No one cared. All the evidence is in my book: The Post-American Presidency: The Obama Administration’s War on America (Simon & Schuster, 2010).

Not only should Mueller resign, but the whole leftist manufactured investigation against President Trump should be shut down.

“Judge rejects Mueller’s request for delay in Russian troll farm case,” by Josh Gerstein, Politico, May 4, 2018 (thanks to Van):

A federal judge has rejected special counsel Robert Mueller’s request to delay the first court hearing in a criminal case charging three Russian companies and 13 Russian citizens with using social media and other means to foment strife among Americans in advance of the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

In a brief order Saturday evening, U.S. District Court Judge Dabney Friedrich offered no explanation for her decision to deny a request prosecutors made Friday to put off the scheduled Wednesday arraignment for Concord Management and Consulting, one of the three firms charged in the case.

The 13 people charged in the high-profile indictment in February are considered unlikely to ever appear in a U.S. court. The three businesses accused of facilitating the alleged Russian troll farm operation — the Internet Research Agency, Concord Management, and Concord Catering — were also expected to simply ignore the American criminal proceedings.

Last month, however, a pair of Washington-area lawyers suddenly surfaced in the case, notifying the court that they represent Concord Management. POLITICO reported at the time that the move appeared to be a bid to force Mueller’s team to turn over relevant evidence to the Russian firm and perhaps even to bait prosecutors into an embarrassing dismissal in order to avoid disclosing sensitive information.

On Friday, Mueller’s prosecutors disclosed that Concord’s attorneys, Eric Dubelier and Kate Seikaly, had made a slew of discovery requests demanding nonpublic details about the case and the investigation. Prosecutors also asked a judge to postpone the formal arraignment of Concord Management set for next week.

The prosecution team sought the delay on the grounds that it’s unclear whether Concord Management formally accepted the court summons related to the case. Mueller’s prosecutors also revealed that they tried to deliver the summonses for Concord and IRA through the Russian government, without success.

“The [U.S.] government has attempted service of the summonses by delivering copies of them to the Office of the Prosecutor General of Russia, to be delivered to the defendants,” prosecutors wrote. “That office, however, declined to accept the summonses. The government has submitted service requests to the Russian government pursuant to a mutual legal assistance treaty. To the government’s knowledge, no further steps have been taken within Russia to effectuate service.”

Mueller’s team sent a copy of the formal summons to Dubelier and Seikaly and asked them to accept it on behalf of Concord Management, but Dubelier wrote back on Monday saying that the government’s attempt to serve the summons was defective under court rules. He did not elaborate….
