Recent court filings indicate that Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller is in possession of a “nude selfie” of someone related to the Russia investigation. The filings also indicate that Mueller may have come into possession of that picture in an inappropriate way.
The Washington Examiner reports:
Special counsel Robert Mueller’s team has allegedly collected a “nude selfie” over the course of its Russia investigation.
Lawyers for Concord Management and Consulting LLC, one of the Russian companies charged by Mueller for its role in sowing discord and interfering in the 2016 election, made the claim in a court filing Thursday.
“Could the manner in which he collected a nude selfie really threaten the national security of the United States?” asked attorney Eric Dubelier in a filing in support of a motion to compel discovery.
No further details were given on who the selfie might be of and how it was obtained, and Law & Crime, who reached out for comment, reports that it has not yet heard back.
It’s too early to know what to think of the scandal, but Mueller has already been accused by the President’s attorneys of inappropriate investigative procedures, including destroying evidence.
This is definitely something to keep an eye on.
