WASHINGTON - MARCH 09: F.B.I. Director Robert Mueller speaks at a news conference at the bureau's headquaters March 9, 2007 in Washington, DC. Mueller was responding to a report by the Justice Department inspector general that concluded the FBI had committed 22 violations in its collection of information through the use of national security letters. The letters, which the audit numbered at 47,000 in 2005, allow the agency to collect information like telephone, banking and e-mail records without a judicially approved subpoena.

Another attempt to dismantle Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into possible conspiracy between the Russian government and the campaign of President Donald Trump has been thwarted--this time by a Trump-appointed judge. Federal District Judge Dabney Friedrich ruled against Concord Management and Consulting, a Russian company under scrutiny for alleged efforts to sway American votes through deceptive social media platforms.

Concord Management and Consulting attempted to argue that the Special Counsel's case did not have standing in court because Robert Mueller was not appointed by the president or confirmed by a legislative body.

Last year, the United States Justice Department, headed by Attorney General Jeff Sessions decided to conduct a more thorough investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and any ties to the campaign of President Donald Trump. This move came after investigations led by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and in the House and Senate and the high profile firing of the FBI director, James Comey, by the president.

Trump administration member AG Sessions recused himself from the investigation, turning it over to another Trump appointee, Rod Rosenstein. Rosenstein decided to appoint former FBI director Robert Mueller as Special Counsel exactly one year ago today. All three men are lifelong Republicans.

This morning, President Donald Trump Tweeted, "Is this Phony Witch Hunt going to go on even longer so it wrongfully impacts the Mid-Term Elections, which is what the Democrats always intended? Republicans better get tough and smart before it is too late!"
