Robert Mueller Wants Secret Evidence Kept Secret at Trial

The Special Prosecutor was supposed to REVEAL the crimes that were committed against America, not use secret evidence!

Remember, special prosecutor Robert Mueller indicted Russians with great fanfare, but when one of the indicted asked for a trial date, suddenly Mueller wasn’t ready to go to court. He even suggested he would flood the court with so much “evidence” that they would not be able to go to trial any time soon. Of course, it makes no sense that Mueller would have enough evidence to indict and not be ready to prove their charge in court.

But now, rather than choking the court with evidence, Mueller claims to be worried about releasing too much. If he argues his case in open court the Russians might learn important secret intel! He wants to make sure his secret evidence isn’t revealed to anyone.

The Associated Press reports, “Mueller worries Russia could use court case to spy on probe.

Special counsel Robert Mueller’s team is worried that Russian intelligence services will use a criminal case in Washington to gather information about its investigation and U.S. intelligence-gathering methods.

In court papers filed Tuesday, prosecutors are asking a federal judge to impose limits on the information that can be shared by attorneys […].

So far, only one defendant, Concord Management and Consulting LLC, has appeared in the case, and prosecutors say they’re worried information they provide to the company’s attorneys could end up in the hands of other defendants or Russian spy agencies.

The government “has particularized concerns about discovery in this case being disclosed to Russian intelligence services,” prosecutors write, noting that disclosure of information they plan to share with the company’s attorneys could compromise ongoing and future national security investigations.

Prosecutors also want to bar other defendants from accessing the materials turned over in the case until they appear in a U.S. court.

This makes no sense! Robert Mueller is in charge of a law enforcement case, not a covert intelligence operation. He is supposed to gather evidence that can be used in a court of law. The trial is supposed to be public as is the evidence. It would be a weird way to “defend our democracy” if it had to be done by a secret tribunal!

The entire point of the Mueller probe was to “get to the bottom” of Russian interference. If this is now going to be more of the same “intelligence sources have determined… but we can’t reveal sources and methods,” then there was never any point to it.
