    I could be mistaken. Maybe it was another bald-headed jigsaw-puzzle-tattooed naked guy I saw.

    Oh, I know. That wasn't directed at you.

    It's just another inane term like dhs, as though this is the ####ing USSR or Patriot Act. More like the anti patriot act.

    I'm taking a few classes right now to better myself. Business/Technical Writing and Interpersonal Communication.

    Trying to convey a face-to-face conversation online is tough sometimes. Sometimes it takes a few iterations.

    The Trump-hating Guardian then dropped another bombshell, the news that pretty much every Western intelligence agency in the world was aiding and abetting the Obama administration's unbelievable and unprecedented (Nixon only wanted to do this) abuse of power against a political opponent:

    Over the next six months, until summer 2016, a number of western agencies shared further information on contacts between Trump’s inner circle and Russians, sources said.

    The European countries that passed on electronic intelligence – known as sigint – included Germany, Estonia and Poland. Australia, a member of the “Five Eyes” spying alliance that also includes the US, UK, Canada and New Zealand, also relayed material, one source said.

    Another source suggested the Dutch and the French spy agency, the General Directorate for External Security or DGSE, were contributors.

    Q: So what exactly is this "sigint"?

    A: It perfectly meets the modern definition of -- you ready for it? -- wiretapping!

    Signals intelligence (SIGINT) is intelligence-gathering by interception of signals, whether communications between people (communications intelligence—abbreviated to COMINT) or from electronic signals not directly used in communication (electronic intelligence—abbreviated to ELINT). Signals intelligence is a subset of intelligence collection management.

    This next bit from the Guardian report is important because it appears to vindicate Fox News commentator Judge Napolitano, who was widely-ridiculed in the political media, and then suspended by Fox News, for reporting something very close to this back in March:

    Britain’s spy agencies played a crucial role in alerting their counterparts in Washington to contacts between members of Donald Trump’s campaign team and Russian intelligence operatives, the Guardian has been told.

    GCHQ first became aware in late 2015 of suspicious “interactions” between figures connected to Trump and known or suspected Russian agents, a source close to UK intelligence said. This intelligence was passed to the US as part of a routine exchange of information, they added.

    There were dueling headlines this week, one from a liberal British newspaper, the other from a conservative U.S. magazine.

    "British spies were first to spot Trump team's links with Russia," wrote The Guardian. Well, bother, that'll put the prezzy in a bit of a spot.

    But wait, there was this other headline -- same story, just a different headline, from The American Spectator: "Confirmed: John Brennan Colluded With Foreign Spies to Defeat Trump."

    [clip]

    But The Spectator shined the spotlight into the dark crevasses of the story:

    Seeking to retain his position as CIA director under Hillary, [John] Brennan teamed up with British spies and Estonian spies to cripple Trump’s candidacy. He used their phony intelligence as a pretext for a multi-agency investigation into Trump, which led the FBI to probe a computer server connected to Trump Tower and gave cover to Susan Rice, among other Hillary supporters, to spy on Trump and his people.

    John Brennan’s CIA operated like a branch office of the Hillary campaign, leaking out mentions of this bogus investigation to the press in the hopes of inflicting maximum political damage on Trump. An official in the intelligence community tells TAS that Brennan’s retinue of political radicals didn’t even bother to hide their activism, decorating offices with “Hillary for president cups” and other campaign paraphernalia.

    Huh. What a very different story.

    What's important from the U.S. side, of course, is what our own CIA director did.
