FBI informant now convicted Russian spy, Mariia Butina, waived her right to an appeal twice, according to official court transcripts made under oath.
The first time was Dec. 13th.
The second time was April 26th.
According to the FBI, Butina was their informant.
The source is 59 pages of evidence exhibits filed by the FBI in her criminal court matter.
They are public information.
Three pages of FBI evidence exhibits were filed on May 1st, five days AFTER her April 26th sentencing.
FBI Informant, Mariia Butina
The FBI admitted that evidence collected by Butina as one of their informants included:
thumb drives of 102,000 hours of audio
one and a half million documents seized from two FBI raids on Butina’s apartment
50-hours of testimony to the FBI and Congress
and other files found in packed boxes
The FBI never filed an inventory of evidence in Mariia’s case.
The Judge never required it.
Nor did Butina’s attorneys.
Neither have any trial, appeals, or criminal law experience.
The first FBI search took all day.
Her attorney had advanced notice.
And was present during the FBI searches of Butina’s apartment on April 24th and July 15th, 2018.
Butina’s attorneys never filed an appeal, according to Pacer, the official court record of the federal judiciary.
The deadline for filing an appeal expired Friday.
Butina is no longer in the custody of the Federal Bureau of Prisons, according to their records.
Butina is alleged to be in Grady County Jail in Oklahoma.
Their booking desk has no record of her arrival.
The Sheriff’s inmate verification line is 405-222-1000.
The jail has 32 cells.
The Judge released Butina into the custody of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement).
At least that is what her two-page court order said.
It is dated April 26th and is imaged above with a red time stamp.
Updated May 24th
Butina’s appeal was filed Monday in the D.C. Court of Appeals by the District Court.
The filing deadline expired two weeks ago.
