For John, BLUF: Did everyone get a fair break? Nothing to see here; just move along.
Did U.S. spooks have a court order to listen to his conversations? Why?
Here is an excerpt from the Article in The Wall Street Journal
The questions someone in the White House should ask the National Security Agency is why it didn’t use minimization procedures to protect Mr. Flynn? Or did it also have a court order to listen to Mr. Flynn, and how did it justify that judicial request?I realize that to some the ends justify the means. However, that is not the way it should be.
If Mr. Flynn was under U.S. intelligence surveillance, then Mr. Trump should know why, and at this point so should the American public. Maybe there’s an innocent explanation, but the Trump White House needs to know what’s going on with Mr. Flynn and U.S. spies.
And, if there was ever any doubt about us (the US) tapping other people's phones, this should remove all doubt.
Hat tip to one of my friends in Connecticut.
