Somebody in the Trump Administration has a brain.

Commuting Mr Stone's sentence was clever. If he'd been pardoned, he could not invoke the Fifth in a related court case, because he couldn't be incriminating himself. Commutation does not carry that immunity, so he could refuse to answer future questions.

The President appoints the ambassadors.

The latest revelations puzzle me. If Mr Trump was dissatisfied with his ambassador, he could just fire her and appoint someone more to his taste. Indeed, he did fire her and appoint someone more to his taste. Why would agents acting on his behalf (allegedly) go through such an elaborate and risky surveillance, to say nothing about what action was contemplated that required such surveillance? Only if one were hoping to create a provocation and pin it on someone else, it seems, would it be worthwhile to go through such a charade.
