Mueller departs after briefing the U.S. House Intelligence Committee on Capitol Hill in Washington

Wednesday's filing in the US District Court for the District of Columbia is the latest in a dispute between prosecutors and Concord's American attorneys over whether the defense team can share highly sensitive evidence with Concord's corporate officers in Russian Federation.

Most of the Russians and companies charged in the Internet Research Agency case are out of reach of US prosecutors in Russia and unlikely to stand trial.

The special counsel charged Concord Management a year ago with funding a multimillion-dollar social media disinformation campaign to bolster the presidential campaign of Donald Trump. Concord is the only defendant to respond to the allegations in court, which means its attorneys have access to evidence in the case.

The evidence shared online was what prosecutors call "non-sensitive" and included information available elsewhere on the internet, like public posts that Concord's conspirators allegedly put on social media sites in 2016.

Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker said on Monday that Mueller's probe is "close to being completed". "I would say that I think after nearly two years it certainly should be", he told the Caller when asked if Whitaker had communicated with him about the investigation wrapping up. Whitaker's comments were the first time a top government official with knowledge of the investigation has publicly said it is in the final stages, although there have been signs that the investigation is nearing its end.

"We are like hundreds of others, but we are the one and only who got the Special Counsel Mueller database", @HackingRedstone claimed. Stone, 64, was charged in a seven-count indictment unsealed in D.C. federal court last week charging him with lying to Congress, obstruction and witness tampering.
