The EU

Google says the EU requires a notice of cookie use (by Google) and says they have posted a notice. I don't see it. If cookies bother you, go elsewhere. If the EU bothers you, emigrate. If you live outside the EU, don't go there.

Government Spying on Campaigns

For John, BLUFThis may be as old as the Republic itself, but we never forced it into the public fora, until we began this Russiagate investigation.  Sad.  Very sad.  Nothing to see here; just move along.

This post relates to this earlier post. From The Washington Examiner, by Reporter Steven Nelson, 20 May 2018.

Here are the first three paragraphs of the story:

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein asked the Justice Department's inspector general Sunday to review whether there was improper politically motivated surveillance of the Trump campaign in 2016.

Rosenstein made the request shortly after a tween from President Trump saying that he would "officially" ask "that the Department of Justice look into whether or not the FBI/DOJ infiltrated or surveilled the Trump Campaign for Political Purposes."

In a statement, Rosenstein said:  "if anyone did infiltrate or surveil participants in a presidential campaign of inappropriate purposes, we need to know about it and take appropriate action."  The attorney general, Jeff Sessions, has recused himself from Russia related matters.

That seems like a timely response.  And action in the proper direction.

The accusations, if true, may not be as offensive as the Wisconsin John Doe issue, but still pretty serious.

On the other hand, I see no reason to suggest the other campaign was either involved or a benefactor.

Hat tip to the InstaPundit.
