In the case of the nerve agent poisoning, British and international authorities had pinned the blame for that attack on the Kremlin.

Now the head of the Justice Department's National Security Division, John Dimmers, said today that Russia Stands alone in the sort of destructive cyberattacks that its agents conduct. Here's a bit of what he said. No country has weaponized. It's cyber capabilities as maliciously and irresponsibly as Russia. Wantonly, causing unprecedented collateral damage to pursue small tactical advantages and fits of spite. Surrounding these defendants are presumably still in Russia and not in U. S custody. What does that mean about next steps for this case? Well, none of these men are in U. S custody right with that, And it is unlikely that any of them will ever face trial here in the United States. One of them actually is already facing charges in the U. S. He was charged by special Counsel Robert Mueller in connection with Russia's hacking in the 2016 election. So there is a big question of just how effective bringing charges like these are But Justice Department officials say it's important to put the weight of the U. S government behind these sorts of allegations. It helps expose what hackers are up to, and the methods that they used. It also makes clear to the international community what Russia is doing. And while it may not be a satisfying as seeing the defendants in court, U. S officials say, it is still a valuable thing to do. NPR's Ryan Lucas. Thank you. Thank you.

What does that mean about next steps for this case? Well, none of these men are in us custody, all right with that, And it is unlikely that any of them will ever face trial here in the United States. One of them actually is already facing charges in the U. S. He was charged by special Counsel Robert Mueller in connection with Russia's hacking in the 2016 elections, so There is a big question of just how effective bringing charges like these are, but Justice Department officials say it's important to put the weight of the U. S government behind these sorts of allegations. It helps expose what hackers are up to, and the methods that they used. It also makes clear to the international community what Russia is doing. And while it may not be a satisfying as seeing the defendants in court, U. S officials say, it is still a valuable thing to do. NPR's Ryan Lucas. Thank you. Thank

"They were guilty of federal crimes they got sent to prison for a federal fraud and federal wire fraud you know the wire fraud was writing emails to each other each other to create this is when the federal government you know they can use all these statutes to just just hammer you for writing these emails constituted a a use of wire fraud and yeah that's what they did that's what they did they charge them with federal grant sent them to prison well guess what the Supreme Court has thrown ouch the bridge gate convictions and justice Elena Kagan who I will say Elena Kagan is a liberal she is a liberal and she's on the Supreme Court Elena Kagan is a smart lawyer scallop like Elaine okay gonna smart IC I admit what's true just a sort of my order for example is a third year lawyer and he's just not at the level of understanding and comprehension of the law to be on the Supreme Court both liberals but one of them very smart lawyer the other one now okay you can hear wrote that not every corrupt and I'm I I know I believe it was yeah it was a unanimous ruling it was unanimous ruling so I will give credit to every answer everyone on the court that they made the right call which this is but it's also of course is the unanimous ruling federal wire fraud for writing an email to start a traffic jam now this is this is the kind of act that yes people should be held it's a stupid thing to do people should be held accountable but this is something you get fired for this isn't something you go to federal prison for Sir do you think of all the people that you know would during protests will stand in the street and block traffic you know yeah sure they may be arrested in process because they're actively personally blocking traffic sure decent prison for four years I mean actually I kind of think sometimes we should but still federal crime that's what they're saying and here's here's what the just justice Elena Kagan writing for this unique unanimous ruling here's how she put it quote not every corrupt acts by state or local officials is a federal crime because this team here did not aim to obtain money or property Baroni and Kelly could not have violated the federal program fraud for wire fraud laws and quote think of how I look I you know give credit and the the lives on the court even some of my order all right I'm in a minute this is not a lawyer but you know they did the right thing even gave Ginsburg I think of a call in for the our goal oral arguments recently there was a battle on BP's about how they're trying to lock Ginsberg in in not card is it hello what's the thing that they put in Star Wars they put you is is a carbonite then I saw the guy you know India you're a Star Wars Curnow exploring to make wow and you still have to watch the Mandalorian have you I have not but producer Nick is telling us it is carbonite Bruiser neck he's he's a he's a Star Wars Bafana yeah carbonite they're trying to lock the did the joke in the Babylon bee is they're gonna lock Ginsberg in carbonite because there anything to make sure that she's okay you know she's still on the Supreme Court especially I mean if trump wins reelection they're they're not going to give you I don't know what they're gonna do but you're gonna see Ginsburg show off and they should be like the first year sideboard gets everybody agreed they're going to grammar implants they have to put it in the you know the technology twenty first century sci fi stuff whatever they're gonna do they're gonna that's how much they they value having a a Supreme Court as a super legislature for the lab but let's go back here to the to the moment this is to the throw out here and they mention of blah blah governor Bob McDonnell conviction which was also thrown out by the Supreme Court these are Republicans you think that's an accident these are other Republican operatives Republican politicians who are over zealously prosecuted by the feds oh you mean the deep state has been around for a long time you mean the deep state isn't just some new thing against trump mom that's right if you're a live if you're a Democrat you get to look you get to just under a different set of rules that's just that's just the way it is that's what we see happening time and again but that this was the right move how can you how can you be guilty of fraud and wire fraud for just doing you know doing something within your power it is with the world was within their powers to do this they said they call that a traffic study or something but it was essentially a really dumb prank and I'm following I don't think it's a funny one I think traffic is not funny I think it's really frustrating and I think you know I don't know a producer mark would do if you put him in traffic for two hours because of a prank and then you hand them a baseball bat and said those the people responsible how she don't even know it would not be pretty it would not be pretty the museum it would not be pretty so I understand right I understand it's very frustrating but yeah they should be fired they should be fired and the reputation should be damage federal prison where what's the fraud being a moron if it's being a moron is a federal fraud and writing in an email about your being a moron is a federal wire fraud we better really star locking up some politicians all over the place this was absurd the fact that federal prosecutors took it to this extent the fact that that that a judge allow this to happen in the first case on a unanimous a unanimous overthrow office from the Supreme Court just goes to show you folks there are a lot of political hacks and activists wearing robes and prosecutors are you know judges robes and prosecutors are not like a normal room air check among not like I'm a real guy well when I go to a hotel and I'll put on the road just because I feel like you got if you really get in the hotel five but I'm not a real guy never have been where was I I just got confused for a second yes so they had to I was thinking about a time when you actually go to like spas in these places that you could live a normal life and where road and you can't do that anymore so it will win for justice here you know these people their reputations are ruined their lives are forever forever marred by this they should be in federal prison and even all the lives in the Supreme Court agree but remember my initial premise here where are the Democrats who are unfairly unfairly district the only one that can come along and maybe for some of you is the glory of H. two is clearly comic corrupt guy but who's your who's come to Google images defense overreach of the governor trump and Republicans Democrats that are saying yeah you W. which wasn't really that bad he got a raw deal they like the same people want to control every aspect of your life we're now in the pandemic the same people want to tell you to what you could be the after recycling no plastic bags being used all this stuff those same people like that the state the big S. state is able to crush anyone they want using the courts and using the prosecutors a weapons that's not the country I want to live in if you're gonna go to prison whatever you did should be able to be in one sentence it should be clear what he did why it's bad and why you need to have your freedom taken away it shouldn't be some commentators shouldn't be like the Logan act for example which they went after Flynn all right it should be some bull crap that we all know is ridiculous.
