NOTE: Because I see some people asking, USIC would NOT have intercepted this call. They would not be intercepting our diplomats' and POTUS' communications to begin with, but even if they wanted to they would need a FISA order for an USPER, even located abroad
Which means, btw, that Russia and every other country that wanted to (except maybe Five Eyes) would know what was said on this and other calls...but we don't. Isn't that awesome?
To add: Our friends and allies are not going to “leak” any intel they have, outside a formal intelligence sharing request. The whole game is to spy but never admit you do it. Otherwise you risk a diplomatic incident, like this one👇🏽 https://www.theguardian.com/world/2015/jun/30/brazil-dilma-rousseff-obama-nsa-spying-apology …
