Miller says his files were discovered in Russia, which he used for a "misinformation campaign"

A the pro-Russian Twitter account somehow got access to non-core evidence collected by Special Adviser Robert Miller and tweeted the changed versions of those files as part of a "disinformation campaign," Myeller said Wednesday.

The allegations were made by Miller's team in a new court filing Wednesday in a case against Concord Management and Consulting, a Russian company owned by Yevgeny Prigozhin, a billionaire friend of Russian President Vladimir Putin. Concord Management helped fund the famous Russian troll farm, an Internet research agency.

According to Miller, "certain insensitive" evidence given by federal defense attorneys have been "changed" and published online "as part of a disinformation campaign aimed at (apparently) discrediting ongoing investigations of Russia's involvement in the US political system. "Miller did not describe how the information was altered.

According to the court's submission, on October 22, 2018, the newly created Twitter account, @ HackingRedstone, said: "We have access to the base of the probe of Müller's Special Adviser when we broke the Russian server with information from the Russian troll case Concorde Ltd against Müller. You can see all the files that Miller had about the IRA and Russia agreement. Enjoy reading! "

A tweet linked to a website located on an offline portal to share file folders with "non-public names and file structure of materials" that were produced for Concord's defense, Miller said.

About 1,000 of the total of 300,000 files released online merged files produced for Concord Management in a discovery, the FBI revealed.

Miller's team noticed that the FBI found "no proof" that the federal government servers or Miller servers "were the victims of any computer attack." However, it was not clear how the file structure information became public.

"The fact that the names of the file folders and the structure of the folders on the site substantially match the non-public names and file structure of the materials that were created when the discovery was made, as well as the fact that more than 1,000 files on the website coincide with those created at the discovery found that the person who created the website had access to at least some of the insensitive government-made discovery in this case, "the statement said.

According to the footnote, the files include pictures of political memes from Facebook and other social media accounts, which, according to the accusation against Concord, are published and published on the Internet by the Russian troll agency IRA. They were produced as insensitive to defense, says Miller, but many of the images are "probably still available elsewhere on the Internet."

Miller said on Wednesday that the Concorde Manager's defense team said on October 23, 2018 that he had been investigated by reporters, claiming that they had been offered "hacked materials for detection from our case" and that the defense concluded that it was a "scam" by a computer hacker Concord in 2014.

But Miller's team said it was not possible and that "

Miller's filing on Wednesday was in response to Concord Management's request that the special council turn out "sensitive" information so they could be considered by the company's officers and workers in Russia, while the defense team is preparing for trial.

Miller's team declined and said it "unreasonably risks the interests of US national security".

The court ordered in June 2018 that material classified as "sensitive" by the government can only be stored under a certain US law and not be "discovered, transported or transferred" outside the United States for "national security, privacy, and interests for law enforcement. "

Concord Management was one of the three Russian companies and 13 Russians Miller accused in February. Concord Management and IRA own Concorde Catering, who leads Prigogin – who is called Putin's Chef.

All three were charged by Miller, and neither of the owners of the company, nor any of the Russians, was in custody in the United States. It is unlikely that they will ever be.

Meanwhile, Twitter has terminated the @HackingRedstone account for violating its rules.
