It was reported yesterday that unfit buffoon Donald "Rump" Trump was continuing to violate national security protocols by using his personal phone to call friends and others, and that the Chinese and Russians were able to listen in.
Trump has been told that Chinese and Russian spies are listening in on his cell phone calls, but he refuses to use secure landline: "White House officials say they can only hope he refrains from discussing classified information when he is on them." https://t.co/aaifyv4pfU— Catherine Rampell (@crampell) October 24, 2018
In response to the concerns that Rump was leaking classified information (like he did to Russian officials in the Oval Office last year), the White (Supremacist) House had a statement that was both disturbing and reassuring:
"Administration officials said Mr. Trump’s longtime paranoia about surveillance — well before coming to the White House he believed that his phone conversations were often being recorded — gave them some comfort that he was not disclosing classified information on the calls. They said they had further confidence he was not spilling secrets because he rarely digs into the details of the intelligence he is shown and is not well versed in the operational specifics of military or covert activities." (our emphasis)The reckless behavior continues, and while we can be grateful that his lack of interest in his job may protect most national security secrets, it only takes one slip to cost lives.
