MUELLER TO DELAY SPEEDY TRIAL DEMANDED BY INDICTED RUSSIAN COMPANY

Posted on

 

( Daily Caller ) Special Counsel Robert Mueller requested his Russian collusion trial be delayed indefinitely

  • This is the second time Mueller has requested a delay
  • Mueller previously flooded the court with two terabytes of Russian social media

 

Special Counsel Robert Mueller asked a federal judge Tuesday to reject the four-decade-old speedy trial law in the case against 13 Russians and three Russian companies and has asked for an indefinite delay to the Russian collusion trial.
