Swift Comments on Court Filings in Russian Troll Farm Case

13 January 2019 Polygraph.info News

Partner Christopher Swift was quoted in a Polygraph.info article, “`Putin’s Chef’ Lashes Out after Lawyer Rebuked in Troll Farm Case,” about the exchange of court filings in the special counsel’s case against the Russian firm accused of bankrolling the Internet Research Agency, the so-called troll factory that allegedly interfered in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

Swift said such back and forth between the two sides is part and parcel of an adversarial legal system. “Some of the arguments by the defense should be raised, even if they could be raised with less drama and rhetoric,” he said, adding that the “insinuations are less important than the balancing [of interests] that the court has to weigh.”
