he Department of Justice filed a motion to drop all charges against two Russian shell companies accused of interfering in the 2016 presidential election, saying the firms were attempting to exploit the court system to gain access to sensitive information that could hurt U.S. national security.

Federal prosecutors said Monday that Concord Management and Concord Consulting were charged in a 2018 indictment by special counsel Robert Mueller alongside 13 Russians and a troll farm known as the Internet Research Agency. But the two firms consistently fought the charges in court and at times refused to comply with court orders, instead seeking to “reap the benefits of the Court’s jurisdiction while positioning itself to evade any real obligations or responsibility.”


well, that seems messed up. these firms were found to be arms of the russian govt. and now we don’t want to hold them accountable…

Did you even read the portion you quoted?

The firms were attempting to exploit the court system to gain access to sensitive information that could hurt U.S. national security.

Our system allows for discovery and if the cases go forward the Russians intend to game the system to get at classified and sensitive information via discovery.

NPC lefties think the Russians stole the election with 200K of facebook ads while Bloomberg just spent 1/2 billion and couldn’t buy a vote… Poor thinking skills…

Another witch hunt by the govt!
