Company owned by Putin's friend demands dismissal of charges made by special prosecutor Mueller

On Monday, Russian company Concord Management and Consulting, accused of financing a Russian campaign of influence on American elections, demanded that the Court drop charges made by special prosecutor Robert Mueller on the grounds that, according to the company, he was appointed illegally and does not have appropriate prosecutor’s powers.

The company is controlled by Yevgeny Prigozhin, a businessman close to Russian President Vladimir Putin. Prigozhin stated in court documents that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein violated the Appointments Clause of the U.S. Constitution when he hired Mueller.
