so.dan writes: This is as bad as wiretapping can get. If you wiretap lawmakers, judges, and future presidents, you can blackmail them later to get them to do whatever you want.

Tice added that he also saw orders to spy on Hillary Clinton, Senators John McCain and Diane Feinstein, then-Secretary of State Colin Powell, Gen. David Petraeus, and a current Supreme Court Justice."
