Research Summary

The NSA has the technical capability to capture any and all electronic communications globally.  With this drop, Q is telling us that State Actors (probably both foreign and domestic) have been caught trying to blackmail people in power.  As POTUS is draining the swamp, these State Actors have lost assets -- the people they used to have leverage over via blackmail are no longer in power.  And now these State Actors (traitors) got caught trying to blackmail new assets.
