“Marc Thiessen: Democrats have their own foreign espionage problem”
First, it’s 40+ House Democrats hiring spying Pakistani aides, now we’re told the Senate Democrat Feinstein, while head of the Intel committee, employed a Chinese spy.
She’s trying to downplay the whole thing, but according to Thiessen…
“…it is a big deal. I asked several former senior intelligence and law enforcement officials how serious this breach might have been.
“It’s plenty serious,” one former top Justice Department official told me. “Focusing on his driver function alone, in Mafia families, the boss’s driver was among the most trusted men in the crew, because among other things he heard everything that was discussed in the car.”
A former top CIA clandestine officer explained to me what the agency would do if they had recruited the driver of a senior official like Feinstein.
“We would have the driver record on his phone all conversations that Feinstein would have with passengers and phone calls in her car. If she left her phone, iPad or laptop in the car while she went to meetings, social events, dinners, etc., we would have the driver download all her devices. If the driver drove for her for 20 years he would probably would have had access to her office and homes. We would have had the source put down an audio device in her office or homes if the opportunity presented itself. Depending on the take from all of what the source reported, we would use the info to target others that were close to her and exhibited some type of vulnerability.”
“In short,” this officer says, “we would have had a field day.” It seems improbable that Feinstein never once discussed anything sensitive in her car over a period of years…Feinstein owes the country a detailed explanation of how she let a Chinese spy into her inner sanctum. And the media should give this security breach the same attention they would if it involved Russia and the Republicans.”
