Yep, the russians literally argued that the case must be thrown out because a ‘military attack’ by a ‘military intel agency’ is a sovereign act and is immune to prosecution. In other words, the hack was an ACT OF WAR and tRUmp and the rest of his cult are cheering this on.

Its also interesting that the corrupt AG Barr used the cover of an international pandemic to do this. Im sure he understood the optics here, whether it was to provide more cover for tRUmp or to try and play down how the US government got out-maneuvered by the Russians isn't clear though.
