      Full title of article: “MAIL ON SUNDAY EXCLUSIVE: Liz Truss’s personal phone that was hacked by Kremlin agents was so compromised it was locked away in a ‘secure location’ as experts fear top secret negotiations and private messages may have been leaked”

      Liz Truss’s personal mobile phone was hacked by agents suspected of working for the Kremlin, The Mail on Sunday can reveal.

      The cyber-spies are believed to have gained access to top-secret exchanges with key international partners as well as private conversations with her leading political ally, Kwasi Kwarteng.

      One source said that the phone was so heavily compromised that it has now been placed in a locked safe inside a secure Government location.

      The hack was discovered during the summer’s Tory leadership campaign, when Ms Truss was Foreign Secretary, but the details were suppressed by Boris Johnson, who was Prime Minister at the time, and the Cabinet Secretary, Simon Case.

      That’s literally unthinkable.

      Which is odd, as the phone was stored in a Clinton Global Initiative certified lock-box.

      James Comey could use some work, put him on the case.

      Are there phone numbers that Liz just cannot remember or write down on it?  Seems a bit histrionic.

      "Sometimes when I try to understand a person's motives, I play a little game. I assume the worst. What's the worst reason they could possibly have for saying what they say and doing what they do? Then I ask myself, 'How well does that reason explain what they say and what they do?'" GRRM

        It’s a lot of work to apply damage control, and they can’t operate on the assumption that Russia knows everything.

        It’s like when in spy novel an agency uncovers that they had a mole. First thing they do with them is offer them a deal where they come clean in exchange for not ruining the lives of their family.

        I’m now thinking of the Doors song, “The Spy”.

        “I know everything …”
