WASHINGTON (AP) Special counsel Robert Mueller's team is worried that Russian intelligence services will use a criminal case in Washington to gather information about its investigation and U.S. intelligence-gathering methods.
In court papers filed Tuesday, prosecutors are asking a federal judge to impose limits on the information that can be shared by attorneys in the first criminal case directly related to Russian attempts to interfere in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.
So far, only one defendant, Concord Management and Consulting LLC, has appeared in the case, and prosecutors say they're worried information they provide to the company's attorneys could end up in the hands of other defendants or Russian spy agencies.
The government "has particularized concerns about discovery in this case being disclosed to Russian intelligence services," prosecutors write, noting that disclosure of information they plan to share with the company's attorneys could compromise ongoing and future national security investigations.

Mueller opened the door.
Disclosure-——everyone dance !!
The nerve of them...
Translation: We’re worried the attorneys for the Russian defendants might leak that we filed the case based on Fake News and no evidence. They never expected the “case” would ever see the light of day.
Yeah. It’s called discovery. And you started it jackass.
Someone called his bluff, and now he’s scrambling.
He ain’t so smart, is he?
Q: These people are stupid..........................
They are all Democrats.................
Exactly. The defense is entitled to full discovery.
I never thought arrogant stupid could actually be funny?
If Russia is so inept at collecting intelligence that they need to use the US court system, then why is he still investigating Trump?
Hes laying the foundation for an excuse to dismiss the case so that he wont be embarrassed when he loses.
Mueller is not worried about Russia learning what the methods are that US intelligence services guided by the oboma administration are, Mueller is worried the American people will find out. Mueller wants to keep the corruption hidden from the light of day.
How Soviet of them.
Show trials aren’t supposed to go to court.
Apparently when Bobby boy goes to sleep he has visions of Russians dancing in his head.
“Yeah. Its called discovery. And you started it jackass.”
And what we’re going to “discover,” is that Mueller is the criminal here.
