Per CNN, the Justice Department claimed that Russia has continued to push out misinformation to discredit the U.S. government, after a pro-Russian Twitter account named @HackingRedstone leaked classified information regarding a criminal case Robert Mueller’s team brought against a Russian company for social media conspiracy.

The Russian company Concord Management and Consulting was accused of funding a social media effort to influence American voters in 2016. According to CNN, the Justice Department has been collecting evidence of the conspiracy, which Concord’s U.S.-based legal team can review. However, prosecutors said that some of the information was somehow released before trial in October. This happened after the now-suspended Twitter account claimed in a private message to CNN last year that it had a “Mueller database” and after a computer with a Russian IP address released thousands of case files that were a part of Mueller’s evidence collection.

“We are anonymous hackers. We are like hundreds of others, but we are the one and only who got the Special Counsel Mueller database,” the message from @HackingRedstone read. “We got into a Russian lawyer company local net that had permission from ReedSmith (Russian attorneys) to view and download all the files they need from their database through the remove server. You might wonder why we want to share all of this information with you. So, you’re just one of the few who can handle it in the right way. You are the one who can tell people the truth!”

But Reed Smith denies having been hacked. “We maintain the highest levels of security and protection for all of our systems and their contents,” the law firm said. “Reed Smith has never hosted or maintained any of the data at issue here produced by the government in the Concord case on Reed Smith computer systems. A third-party vendor has hosted all such data and has assured us that there has been no breach of the database that maintains the data.”

Per CNN, the leaked evidence is regarded as “non-sensitive.” Prosecutors also claimed that the real evidence were mixed with “junk material.”

“Certain non-sensitive discovery materials in the defense’s possession appear to have been altered and disseminated as part of a disinformation campaign aimed (apparently) at discrediting ongoing investigations into Russian interference in the U.S. political system,” prosecutors wrote.
