THREAD: Let’s see if you can follow this. Let’s pretend you’re a Russian mob guy working for Putin and living in Russia, and you’re indicted by the US federal government. 1/
You live in a country with no extradition treaty so you’re in no danger of being nabbed by the authorities as long as you don’t travel to a country that has an extradition treaty with the US. So you know you’ll never have to stand trial. 2/
But you REALLY want to get your hands on American tradecraft secrets. So you hire a couple of jagoff US lawyers and send them to your pre-trial hearings and ask during discovery for ALL intelligence documents going back to WWII because hey, why not? It’s worth a shot! 3/
So you pay the jagoff lawyers to file they motion for you claiming you need those documents for your defense. And your lawyers are so bad, they quote cartoons and drop the F bomb in their court documents. They’re so bad, the judge scolds you’re lawyers saying “knock it off” 4/
The US decides they aren’t going to hand those documents over because they’re classified and irrelevant. So they hand over the relevant documents. Then you take them, doctor them, and release a fake story that you hacked the US intelligence community. 5/
The court & the DoJ catch wise; you’re never going to voluntarily stand trial & you’re wasting the court’s time & taxpayer money, so they drop the charges and you don’t get shit. THAT IS WHAT HAPPENED HERE. It’s all in the transcripts. If you can’t read, don’t argue. END.
