Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
DNC vs Russian Federation, et al.
The plaintiff, the Democratic National Committee ("DNC"), brings this action against Donald J. Trump For President, Inc. ("the Campaign"); Donald J. Trump, Jr. ("Trump Jr."); Paul J. Manafort, Jr.; Jared C. Kushner; George Papadopoulous; and Richard W. Gates, III (collectively, the "campaign defendants"); Roger J. Stone, Jr.; the Russian Federation; Aras Iskenerovich Agalarov Emin Araz Agalarov; Joseph Misfud; Wikileaks; and Julian Assage.1
1 In the orginal complaint, the BNC also named as defendants the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, the Rusian operative using the pseudonym Fuccifer 2.0, and 10 John Doe defendants. (Dkt. No. 1.) Those defendants wer not named in the Second [!] Amended Complaint. (Dkt. No. 217.)
But, as explained below, under the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act, 28 U.S.C §1602 et seq. ("FSIA"), the Russian Federation cannot be sued in the courts of the united States for government actions, subject to certain limited exceptions not present in this case, just as the United States government generally cannot be sued in courts abroad for its actions. The remedies for hostile actions by foreign governments are state actions, including sanctions imposed by the executive and legislative branches of government.

The DNC seeks to hold the second-level participants in this alleged activity--the Campaign, the Campaign defendants, Wikileaks, Assange, the Agalarovs, Mifsud, and Stone--liable for dissemination of the stolen materials. But, as also explained below, the First Amendment prevents such liability in the same way it would preclude liability for press outlets that publish materials of public interest despite defects in the way the materials were obtained so long as the disseminator did not participate in any wrongdoing in obtaining the materials in the first place.
Therefore, for reasons explained below, the defendants' motion to dismiss the Second Amended Compaint is granted. ...

Fuccifer - as in Guccifer 2.0

DNC was no surprise as the FBI warned beforehand and the intelligence alliance 5+ Eyes were informed by Dutch intelligence from Dec. 2014 onward!!

Discussion about Ukraine is lacking in the election interference ... all distraction by U.S. Congress was pointed [painted] at the Kremlin.

    Dutch Hackers Infiltrated Kremlin's Cozy Bear in 2014

        Dutch hackers infiltrated Cozy Bear HQ in an university building near Kremlin's Red Square. Once inside the Cozy Bear computer network the Dutch managed to  take control of the security camera at the entrance to the computer room. A photo of each person entering the secure location was gathered. All the intelligence was shared real time with the NSA as the Dutch civil (AIVD) and military intelligence (MIVD) are part of the AngloSaxon nine-eyes spy network.

        The Russians succeeded to infiltrate inside the White House and compromise e-mail and communications traffic.

        In July 2015 Cozy Bear infiltrated DNC computer systems.
