Melania’s Speech and Surveillance

As more comes out on the surveillance of the Trump team – going back to 2015 – it looks like they were looking at just about everything, including their day to day talks and habits.

Someone mentioned on TV today that they might have looked at Paul Manafort’s speech at the Republican National Convention. That rang a bell in my head.

Weren’t you shocked that after Melania gave her speech at the RNC, reporters immediately said she was plagiarizing Michelle Obama’s speech when Obama was running for president? Since it was only one or two phrases, it was hard to believe that many people remembered that snippet.

Maybe they had received talking points from the Democrats. Maybe key Dems had the information on the speech ahead of time, had already researched it and were prepared to alert the media immediately.

It was awfully convenient, wasn’t it?
