No conspiracy. With a long sordid history of it already being proven.

What do you think happened in 2008. An honest mistake?

An oopsie?

Now I know why this keeps happening.

What has happened should chill everyone to the bone. We have the government monitoring phone conversation and then delivering the contents of the conversation to a news reporter to anonymously leak the info. We rather expect a foreign government to do things to attempt to undermine our government , but for people within our own government to be doing this is a very damning thing.

Ha ha ha! The intelligence agencies were monitoring the Russians phones duh. That what they do. Its their job. The leaks can in fact be attributed to a very real concern on their part for the National Security of this nation as they see that Flynn was susceptible to blackmail since he lied about it and it was actually on record that he did talk about sanctions. And to top it all off, Trump shitting on the intelligence agencies was probably one of the absolute stupidest things he could have done. Especially with a lot of skeletons in his closet.

Flynn had every right to talk about the sanctions.

The intelligence agencies have laws to operate within. You think they are supposed to leak info as a mode of normal operation? Really you think this? Do you realize that if they catch the person who has done this that they can go to jail for a very long time? It is a very serious crime.

Russian intelligence agents in the US are monitored. And in the process of monitoring them, numerous conversations between Russian intelligence agents and members of Trump's team were overheard .... allegedly.

If this is true, every single detail of every conversation should be made public.

Then why did he feel compelled to tell the Vice President that he never discussed sanctions with the Russians?
