Butina’s attorneys request judge to lift charges against her

The defense team of Maria Butina, a Russian citizen arrested in the United States, requested the judge to lift charges against her fully or in part.

According to documents, available in the database of the United States District Court for the District of Columbia, defense attorneys request the judge “to dismiss the indictment (or one of the counts thereof), or to compel election between the multiplicitous counts.”

“The indictment is constitutionally infirm because it is overly broad and functions unconstitutionally as applied to Maria Butina,” the document reads.
