Western intelligence agencies that were eavesdropping on the Kremlin and its spies—not on Trump or any of his retinue—heard numerous conversations about Trump and his secret Russian connections. The Kremlin talked about Trump like he was their boy, and their comments weren’t always flattering. Australia, Germany, Estonia, and Poland all had SIGINT hits that indicated a troubling relationship between Trump and Moscow. So, too, did the French and the Dutch. The NSA official stated that those above-top-secret reports left no doubt that the Russians were subverting our democracy in 2016—and that Team Trump was a willing participant in the Kremlin’s criminal conspiracy: “Trump and his kids knew what they were doing, and who they were doing it with,” the official explained. *NM*
