For John, BLUF: While looking for the Russians hiding under the bed we are being overrun by China, North Korea, Iran and other spies. Nothing to see here; just move along.
From The Washington Post, by Columnist Marc A. Thiessen, 9 August 2018
By way of introduction, here is the lede:
Imagine if it emerged that the Republican chairman of the House or Senate intelligence committee had a Russian spy working on their staff. Think it would cause a political firestorm? Well, this month we learned that Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) had a Chinese spy on her staff who worked for her for about 20 years, was listed as an “office director” on payroll records and served as her driver when she was in San Francisco, all while reporting to China’s Ministry of State Security through China’s San Francisco Consulate. The reaction of the mainstream media? Barely a peepYes, they are everywhere.
And, it would be nice to see some generalized damage assessment from this case. But, it might be a tough Senatorial race out in the Golden State.
