Now that we know Russia potentially had a technical advantage circa 2011 in SIGINT and device breaches...is this why Team Trump was so brazen, not caring what evidence they left? 🤔

I mean, Flynn ran an intelligence agency, but he didn't protect his conversations with the Russian ambassador. Nor did he stop yammering about the nuclear plan.

Did he just think Russia had won definitively?  https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2018/dec/04/michael-flynn-timeline-former-national-security-adviser-trump 

Flynn bragged about the "army of digital soldiers" and a successful "insurgency" against US democracy, backed by Russia.

He looks pretty confident. Were the Russian breaches why?  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V2MgTd3LgB0 

It didn't last long, but is that why these traitors were so brazen about meeting up with foreign agents and using consumer-trash devices for their conversations?

That's suicidally dumm, but it at least makes sense.
