Mueller investigation: The Twitter account in question is @HackingRedstone, which is suspended. Mueller's team said today that the account published some "non-sensitive discovery materials," meaning it didn't threaten US national security, but the information was not meant to be public.
Mueller indicted the Russian troll farm. They got US lawyers and are fighting the case. During discovery, Mueller shared sensitive docs. Then, the Russians made a Twitter account and released some of the files (some doctored) to undermine Mueller.
In a new filing in the Internet Research Agency case, Mueller's team says they've found evidence discovery documents were forged as part of a "disinformation campaign aimed (apparently) at discrediting ongoing investigations into Russian interference in the US political system."
One protester was arrested for jumping in front of the motorcade near the 17th and Pennsylvania intersection. One law enforcement official was hurt, but accounts differ on what exactly occurred.
