Russian 'Hackers' Stole U.S. Evidence To Discredit Mueller Investigation, Filing Says

But Mueller said in his filing that doing so "unreasonably risks the national security interests of the United States".

Mueller noted that the names and other details on that webpage "significantly match the non-public names and file structure of the materials produced in discovery".

Concord was one of three entities and 13 individuals charged in February 2018 by Mueller as part of a conspiracy to spread disinformation on social media during the 2016 presidential campaign.

"In the filing, Mueller's team said "non-sensitive" evidence that had been shared exclusively with Concord's US law firm, Reed Smith, had wound up being disseminated, purportedly as a result of a hacking operation targeting the law firm", Bloomberg reported.

Asked about his view of the Mueller probe, given critical comments he had made while working as a television pundit before he started working at the Justice Department, Whitaker said that those statements were offered while he was as a private citizen.

President Donald Trump said on Wednesday he would let the Justice Department decide how to handle the special counsel's report on an investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 USA election and whether the Trump campaign coordinated with Moscow.

The special counsel's office said that the online account used to publish the discovery materials was registered by a user with an internet address who resides in Russian Federation.

The Russian firm, Concord Management and Consulting LLC, is being prosecuted in Mueller's investigation of USA allegations that Moscow meddled in 2016 to undermine the American democratic process and help then-Republican candidate Donald Trump defeat Democrat Hillary Clinton.

Prosecutors said that the majority of the files released by the Twitter account were "junk material that has nothing to do with the case", but were included along with real files from Mueller's probe in an apparent bid to discredit it.

The leak I mentioned in Mueller's documents file to the court with prosecution of Concord Management and Consulting, a Russian company, which was allegedly funding hackers operation by Russia's notorious Internet Research Agency (IRA). "They had this grand plan and it all went to hell when me and Casey just lol'd".

Mueller's filing said the online account that published the materials was registered in 2018 by a user with an Internet address in Russian Federation. However, the Twitter account referenced comes up as suspended, and aside from that notice there are no entries for it in the Internet Archive, making Mueller's claim impossible to independently verify.

Prosecutors said the Federal Bureau of Investigation had determined that the documents had not been stolen from government servers. Russian Federation rejects the conclusions of USA intelligence agencies that Moscow ran an operation to hack Democratic Party computers and spread disinformation to undermine candidate Hillary Clinton and the American electoral process.

To wit, Mueller is making an assertion based on a tweet and a webpage - that now do not exist - to argue that it should not disclose further "sensitive" evidence to defendants in a Russiagate case.

In an indictment a year ago, Mueller's office 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.
