In a court filing on Monday, lawyers for Concord Management and Consulting LLC said Mueller had wrongfully accused the company of a "make-believe crime", in a political effort by the special counsel to "justify his own existence" by indicting "a Russian-any Russian". Prosecutors say the company provided millions of dollars in funding to the Internet Research Agency, a Russian social media troll farm that investigators say sowed discord in the USA political system from 2014 through 2017. "The obvious reason for this is that no such crime exists in the federal criminal code".
The lawyers said the case "has absolutely nothing to do with any links or coordination between any candidate and the Russian government", and thus does not carry out Mueller's mandate from Congress to pursue alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. In Monday's filing, the attorney claimed that the indictment does not allege that the company meant to break the law, even though the specific federal campaign and foreign agent registration laws at issue require the government to show willfulness.
