How is this not colluding with America's enemies?

Article:



Imagine, for a moment, what the political reaction would be if a leading Republican senator met with an antagonistic foreign power, say Russia, in the midst of high-tension standoff between President Joe Biden and Vladimir Putin?

Such a scenario seems nearly ­inconceivable. Yet, it's exactly the situation Sen. Dianne Feinstein created when hosting Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif for dinner a few weeks ago.

Politico reported on the meeting, noting that it was "a bit unusual" for a former chair of the Intelligence Committee and a member of the Senate minority to dine out with the acting foreign minister of an adversary of the United States. And by "unusual," Politico meant completely unprecedented.

Actually, my imaginary set-up doesn't really do the Feinstein dinner justice. Iran isn't merely a rival of the United States — like, say, Russia — but a violent and active enemy. Like Russia, Iran has long been hacking into US institutions. But the Islamic regime, according to the past two administrations, is also responsible for the death of hundreds of American service members in Iraq.

Add to that the fact that the ruling mullahs have not only undermined US interests by attacking and threatening our allies through their proxies in Lebanon, Yemen and elsewhere, but they've funded terror groups like Hamas, which is directly responsible for the murder of American citizens.

Feinstein isn't merely just any senator, either. She is one of the leading proponents of reinstituting the Obama administration's failed Iran deal. Only recently the California senator blamed the Trump ­administration, rather than Iranian mullahs who've spent years taking Americans hostages and threatening our friends, of "increasing the chances of an unnecessary military conflict with Iran."

Well, President Trump — not to mention nearly every GOP member of the majority in the Senate — has supported withdrawing from (or renegotiating) the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action. And so he did.

Though Democrats have yet to come to terms with the harsh reality of a President Trump, negotiating deals with foreign powers is his jurisdiction. And, though the Obama administration regularly circumvented this process, the Senate's job is ratify or reject those deals.

So while it's one thing to debate the merits of foreign policy domestically — not only acceptable but essential in matters of potential conflict — it's quite another for an opposition senator to shadow negotiate with a foreign minister who recently "warned" the United States on CNN and demanded our "respect."

Feinstein's rendezvous with Zarif comes at a time when the two nations are in a precarious stand-off. The United States, which recently designated the Iranian Revolutionary Guards as a foreign terrorist organization, has deployed bombers and an aircraft carrier to the Persian Gulf. US troops are now in a danger's way. What if Feinstein and the administration are sending conflicting messages?

Obviously we intercepted the phone calls and meetings, it's time to make the details clear to the American people. Start unmasking and revealing their discussions. Show the American people what they are negotiating behind the President's back so the rest of us will know. Then we can throw them in prison for exactly what they are doing which is NOT collusion, it is treason. There is no such law violation as collusion, but there is for treason.

Former Navy CTT here, I know knew a thing or two. It's pretty much guaranteed we were listening in on the phone calls. What's lesser well known - but not exactly a 'secret' - is that the technology exists to turn on a phone's microphone and use the phone as a 'bug' even when they're not on the phone.

Techwalla: How to Use a Cell Phone As a Listening Device. Of course, the software that article describes requires physical access to the phone and the ability to install software, and I don't "know" it to be a fact, but I'd be flat-out amazed if there's not Gov't-grade tools that can do the same thing undetectably WITHOUT needing physical access to the target phone.

They did it some years after I'd left the Navy, but heard through the grapevine that my former unit intercepted the communications that ultimately led to the capture of Ilyich Ramirez Sanchez aka Carlos "The Jackal" Martinez in Sudan in '94.

Back then, spies and terrorists liked to communicate via fax, on the grounds that the noises were impervious to eavesdropping systems like ECHELON that focused on words and phrases. Yeah, well...

Problem is, because of Frank Church etc in the '70s, we're not supposed to "know" stuff. Sucks that GWB exaceberated this. Way too "compartmentalized". Unless, of course, the target is DJT and associates in which case every little detail including a GC/MS analysis of his farts might as well be published in the New York Times.
