    Post The Secret History of the Russian Consulate in San Francisco

    The Secret History of the Russian Consulate in San Francisco. Overflights, mapping fiber-optic networks, “strange activities.” Moscow’s West Coast spies were busy.

    It is highly likely, sources told me, that the consulate’s closure was linked to U.S. intelligence officials definitively proving long-held suspicions about the objectives of these Russian activities — or that officials could simply no longer countenance these extraordinarily aggressive intelligence-collection efforts and seized on the opportunity to disrupt them after Putin’s latest diplomatic salvo. What seems clear is that when it came to Russian spying, San Francisco was at the very forefront of innovation.

    Do you think the Democrats can say they actually didn't know anything was taking place?
