Well fancy that:
Post-election communications of Donald Trump’s team were swept up in an “incidental collection” by intelligence agencies, a Republican lawmaker says.
Having had his claims that his communications were being monitored ridiculed by all and sundry, and the BBC telling us over and over that his accusations were unsubstantiated, we now find out that Trump was actually having his communications monitored.
Sure, his communications might be collected “incidentally”, but they have nonetheless been collected. That somebody is killed in the collateral damage of an air strike on a military target doesn’t mean they have been murdered in cold blood, but it does not make the person any less dead. Naturally, this story has disappeared from the BBC’s front page and is now buried in the US news section. The Narrative must be maintained, and truth and impartiality be damned.
