Foreign Intelligence and Cooperation

If you think spy thrillers are something, try In Her Majesty’s Disservice by Clarice Feldman. It’s dot connecting with what is known at this time about “wiretapping” and foreign intelligence agency assistance in spying on political opponents.

Rich Lowry writes in the NY Post that Obama’s record of bowing to Russian interests provides circumstantial evidence that he was the real Russian stooge. There’s no reason to believe that his long-time Secretary of State would have proven less so than he was.

There’s every reason to believe that Trump, on the other hand, will not be. There’s also every reason for the heads of the Western allies whose intelligence agencies cooperated in the electronic eavesdropping of Trump and his associates to come clean and apologize, and for those in the U.S. who orchestrated this to suffer fully the legal consequences of unlawful acts.

Scott Johnson notes that “Smith’s April 5 Tablet column hasn’t gotten the attention it deserves. In it Smith asks: “Did the Obama administration’s abuse of foreign intelligence collection start before Trump?” Smith argues that the Trump/Russia narrative replays Obama’s abuse of FISA to smear political actors opposing the administration in the lead-up to the Iran deal.” There is a drip, drip, drip and it is filling the basement. People are beginning to notice patterns that lead them outside their desired paradigms.
