I'm not convinced here. There's a lot of frantic backpedaling going on as people realize that they may be out on a legal limb for conducting politically-motived surveillance. They're desperately trying to spin their way out of trouble.
I'm convinced that something happened, but I'm not convinced it was all done in proper order with appropriate authority and apolitical motivations.
The simple fact that people are admitting FISA warrants were issued suggests that something beyond just using the NSA's global email archives and pen-register traces took place. And it invalidates the theory that the transcripts of conversations with the Russian ambassador were the product of tapping the Russian ambassador alone. Surely there's already a policy of spying on foreign agents in place; that wouldn't need a new warrant.
Something is rotten here.
