Lawyer for ‘Putin Cook’s’ Firm Lambasts Mueller’s Prosecutors

Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s prosecutors came under fire at a court hearing from a lawyer for a Russian company accused of funding a wide-ranging effort to interfere with the 2016 U.S. presidential elections. Attorney Eric Dubelier accused the Mueller squad led by prosecutor Jeannie Rhee of failing to turn over evidence demanded five weeks ago, and for planning to deliver in electronic form about two terabytes of social media-related data without first translating it from Russian. Appearing for the first time in the case before U.S. District Judge Dabney Friedrich on Wednesday in Washington, Dubelier questioned the charges laid out in an indictment unsealed in February against Concord Management and Consulting LLC, one of three companies and 13 individuals charged.
