    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) - A US judge denied a request by Russian company Concord Management to dismiss charges filed by Special Counsel Robert Mueller in the investigation into allegations of Russian meddling in the 2016 US presidential election, a court document said on Thursday.

    "Ordered that Concord Management and Consulting LLC's Motion to Dismiss the Indictment, Dkt, 46 is denied," the document said.

    US District Judge Dabney Friedrich ruled that the parties have to propose a schedule for further proceedings or submit any requests on or before November 28, the document said.

    Concord Management was asking for the indictment to be thrown out on the ground that Mueller was unlawfully appointed by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

    On February 16, the US Justice Department revealed in court documents that the United States had indicted 13 Russian nationals and three entities, including Concord Management and Consulting LLC, for allegedly trying to interfere in the 2016 US presidential election.

    Moscow has repeatedly denied all allegations of interfering in US elections as unfounded attempts to fuel anti-Russian hysteria.
