It’s not just campaign finance violations. It’s tax, it’s public disclosure requirements, possible mail and wire fraud, and 1001 lying to govt. And all of it about trying to cheat to win an election & hide wrongdoing from the American people. Prosecutors cannot look the other way

When I went to DOJ, I recused from any case in which any party had reached out to me to hire me before joining Govt. That was, like, beyond obvious. Ridiculous to think otherwise. It's impossible to avoid an appearance of impropriety. If report is accurate, Barr must recuse.

Australia’s new anti-encryption law is a danger to society, allowing invasive measures so vaguely worded that no one really knows their limits. Here we break down why the law is so dangerous.

Here's the WSJ story that described what is in the Manafort lies filing from earlier in the week: the big one is a Tom Barrack/Manafort meeting on a boat with Kilimnik.

Your expansion of IoT acronym also quite accurate. Any tech is insecure while online - just degrees of insecurity - especially when communicating. 😬

Reminder that IoT inherently insecure. Low tech options for communicating in less insecure manner not just for spies. Collapse of CIA’s web-based comms a ”textbook example of overreliance and naive trust in the protections and security of the online world”

“Day of Infamy” not easy day for me. Reminds me of my 9/11 w’blowing & coverup despite ignored warnings & intel. Attack on Pearl Harbor detected by Joseph Lockard via radar. Sent urgent warning, ignored by watch officer & covered up. See my intervu of him.

So internal whistleblower targeted as grave NatSec insider threat in eyes of for calling out fundamental security weaknesses in their global comms system supposed to protect highly vulnerable sources & assets, before dozens of them were killed?

PSA: US intel complex has long standing highly sensitive, ‘state secret’ level relationships (direct & proxy) w/ many firms, telcos, IT services & IT equip manufacturers & integrators. US GovCo co-op central to NatSec & intel mission, ops & surveillance.

Riddle me this about - a critical comms system is massively compromised & leads to many DOZENS of sources & assets executed or unmasked, but instead CIA goes after whistleblower as NatSec threat who called out weakness of same system BEFORE it failed.

For more on the pivotal role US telecom companies play in surveillance, see this: NSA's inspector general once cited Keith Alexander saying "if the relationships w/these companies were ever terminated, the US SIGINT system would be irrevocably damaged."

William Barr was Verizon's general counsel from 2000-2008, which means he would have been a key NSA liaison during the warrantless STELLAR WIND mass-communications dragnets. There is zero evidence Verizon was anything but collaborative while Bush 43 violated the 4th amendment.
