    haven't we? I just assume everything we do is recorded and stored somewhere. The only saving grace is that the sheer mass of it slows whatever bad actors might want to do.

    It can always be blamed on some lower echelon upstart and they can be disappeared or ruined with a flip of the switch.

    What gets me is that all of these scandals are about things Republicans are completely down with, the surveillance state, political pressure through closer examination via the IRS inter alia, and the ever increasing instigation and manipulation in other countries. They love this stuff. They act all offended, and I mean act. They can't wait to get them some of that.
