You know what this reminds me of? It reminds me of John Paul II. The stories about him were that the Soviets spied on him before and after both Conclaves in 1978. Pope Pius XII was also purportedly spied upon by the Nazis and Soviets throughout World War II. What our government is doing now is anathema to the principles of this country. A host of American men and women died believing they were defending against these types of abuses to freedom.
The fact that our government doesn’t mind following the Soviet playbook is very frightening.
