Not sure why folks think the #Vault7
info supports T's claim re: wiretap. Rather, the info indicates if surveilled, many potential sources.
Scariest part: The zero percent chance the #Vault7
tactics haven't been used domestically. My source? The law of human nature.
If true, however, only gives credence to my at-the-time minority-held view Sony hack was not N.K. #Vault7
So according to #Vault7
info CIA uses other country's malware to disguise its snooping. Not surprising, also not cool, if used domestically.
Almost no device, in ordinary use, is secure. In sum...Duh.
That said, I really don't understand how this is news to anyone. Feels like a big "duh" moment. No app is secure if your device isn't. And->
A fairly strong example of GOP disconnect: ⚡️ “Jason Chaffetz in hot water due to healthcare vs. iPhone analogy”
Sounds like a book I wrote, 6-7 years ago: Wikileaks: The CIA is using TVs, smartphones, cars to spy on their owners wapo.st/2n2sLgp?tid=ss…
Great idea, if they allow sufficient plot options to please folks who hate weak plots driven by convenience: investopedia.com/news/netflix-m…

I've seen enough in terms of both legislation and litigation to know they hold no sway in the face of prurient interests.
All women face this, despite laws or policies: 'I'm never reenlisting.' Marine Corps rocked by nude-photo scandal. wpo.st/aaOf2
And, if the offiical seemed generally off-balance, no one would blame or suspect him of intentionally leaking classified info...
For example, if the official learned that a wiretap of a foreign agent garnered information, he would tweet something about a wiretap.
It would be a fascinating plot turn if some random government official was actually using Twitter to send messages to someone he can't call.
Also, it's pretty telling that she only lashes out at other women and their attire here, not the many men who shared their view.
Modern Irony: When the person complaining about an alleged wiretap is the same person who invited a foreign nation to hack their opponent.
I think I can speak for all women by saying we'd love to find the perfect pair of black pants, with a touch of stretch, that are flattering.
If she doesn't like the black stretch pant fashion trend, have Ivanka design and market something better that is affordable/versatile.
And, I think it's wrong for KAC to sit in her ivory tower and insult women for wearing something comfortable they can afford.
Now, mind you, I'm not a fan of wearing black stretch pants anywhere outside of yoga class, but not everyone can afford designer Gucci.
So Rubio may not be sure what prompted "wiretap" tweets, but seems pretty obvious that someone close to Trump questioned w/ specific info.
Here's one reason- She expects "sisterhood" to come to her defense, when she says things like this about them: glamour.com/story/kellyann…
Nice work by O'Donnell. Sadly, less impressed with KAC. Kellyanne Conway: Counselor and target cbsnews.com/news/kellyanne…
Be on record as having advised them to speak up, air it out before waste time/public expense or would be removed without question by him.
Surprising to me that Trump did not insist all cabinet nominees be up front and ahead of any Russia inquiries. Better way to handle ->
IMO- leaks less to do w/ political loyalty, more to do w/ lack of current admin accountability - no employee faith admin will self regulate.
In other news, Trump looking to shed prior admin employees to stop leaks. Not good idea. He's already having a hard time filling positions.
And relevance of that goes beyond potentially changed outcome. It includes earlier opportunity for change/accountability from DT admin.
And, the worst part about this is that the public was not given the opportunity to go to the polls knowing then what we know now. ->
...they chose their fate. IMO, they should assign to themselves the same outcome they sought for HC. To do otherwise further betrays trust.
When faced with choice of being on the right side of the matter, or the momentarily convenient one, Rpubs chose the latter. In so doing, ->
Rpubs choice to attack HC for email nonsense when they were similarly challenged should not go unnoticed. Shows lack of vision & character.
...to acknowledge the serious issues with data security and privacy we all face, rather than assault a high-profile female victim of same.
...reasons for HC use of private server. Instead, he piled on the criticism. Very disappointing. Better approach would've been for Rpubs->
Hmm, so Pence used private email for govt biz when Gov because official email hacked. One would think that would give him understanding of->
To that end, could also be wise if Dems acted collectively, without any single lead, for the next few years. Leaves opposition w/o a target.
Very wise to have Beshear deliver response. Hard for Pres/Rpubs to discredit a private citizen or to rally base against an "enemy."
To be clear, the issue is not the location (Oval Office is essentially a home office). It's the lack of respect for herself and visitors.
And, I say this as someone who has tried very hard not to to be critical of Ms. Conway, b/c I really do want all women to succeed.
Personally, I would never sit like that in a formal setting, in public, in a dress. It's not professional, and gives appearance of weakness.
Bigger issue- if a pic needed, why not Priebus, who stood behind her, or a staff photographer? She diminishes herself and her role, here. twitter.com/AFP/status/836…
Wondering what voters who told themselves Trump wasn't speaking literally re: campaign promises think now that it's confirmed he was.
Bear in mind, that view is not remotely shared by the nation you served...no matter what the voices are telling him.
Pres stated at CPAC "all" Americans need to get off welfare & get to work? Did you hear that disabled vets? Pres thinks you are freeloaders.
That said, can't help but wonder why there's so much insecurity about the Russia investigation. Sure makes it seem there's something to see.
Seems just as likely leaks by someone, or something, closer to home. Would be ironic if leak turned out to be an unsecured phone.
Would be interesting if it turned out leaks aren't from FBI - Trump: FBI ‘totally unable’ to stop leaks a.msn.com/01/en-us/AAnil…
It requires targeted hiring & investment in training, both of which have not been the focus for businesses viewing employees as disposable.
