First crack in mystery around unnamed foreign company fighting Mueller subpoena as its law firm is revealed to be one used by Russian oligarch

The law firm of Alston & Bird has been identified as being among those taking part in legal battles over a subpoena from Robert Mueller's prosecutors against a mysterious company owned by a foreign government.

Just the identity of the firm constitutes a break in information about the case. It was only tied to the special counsel at first through scraps uncovered by reporters following it.

The identity of the company has been kept under seal, and an entire floor of a federal courthouse in Washington was closed to reporters during one stage to keep the identities of interested parties under wraps.

The firm was outed by CNN as taking part in the case. Alston & Bird is a major national and international law and lobbying firm with offices in Washington and overseas whose most prominent partner is former Senate Majority Leader Bob Dole.
