Special Counsel Robert Mueller likely thought the "Russian troll farm" he indicted would never show up in court as they were all Russian nationals with no fear of extradition.
As I reported last month, he was wrong.
Not only did the accused firm, Concord Management and Consulting, hire two American lawyers to show up in court in DC and plead not guilty, but they started filing a host of discovery requests.
Mueller responded by requesting a delay in the case but his request was swiftly denied by U.S. District Court Judge Dabney Friedrich.
On Tuesday, Mueller asked judge Friedrich to keep all the supposed "evidence" he has against the troll farm secret, claiming Russia is still running "active 'interference operations' into U.S. elections" and showing the accused the evidence against them "could imperil ongoing investigations," Bloomberg reports.
