Mueller Pushes Back at Russian Firm's Bid to Wriggle Out of Charges
Special Counsel Robert Mueller pushed back against the Russian company in his crosshairs over alleged interference in the 2016 election on Tuesday, telling a federal judge in Washington that the conspiracy charges he filed against the firm aren't dependent on prosecutors proving its ["]election interference["] was a crime.

"Those allegations are sufficient to support the charge of conspiracy to defraud the United States regardless of  whether the defendants agreed to engage in conduct that violated [the Federal Election Campaign Act] or [the Foreign Agent Registration Act]."
