Colin Kahl is a former Deputy Assistant to President Obama and National Security Advisor to V.P. Biden, who along with Ben Rhodes, Obama’s Deputy National Security Advisor for Strategic Communications, was targeted by team Trump last year when they hired a private Israeli intelligence firm to “dig up dirt” on Obama officials who worked on the Iran Nuclear Deal.
Mr. Kahl believes his lovely wife Rebecca may have been targeted by the low-lifes through her email last spring.

Mr. Kahl’s story:
According to this story, in May of last year, Team Trump asked an Israeli intel firm to dig up dirt on me as part of an effort to discredit the Iran deal.

Tonight, as my wife read this story, that date triggered a very creepy memory.
This “UK person” said “she” was flying to DC soon and wanted to have coffee with my wife to discuss the possibility of including my daughter’s school in their educational fund network.
This was not a generic “Nigerian prince” scam. This person had all sorts of specific information on my wife’s volunteer duties at an obscure DC elementary school.
There was a website for the firm (which no longer exists, by the way), but it had no depth to it, and there was no detailed information about the “UK person” who reached out to my wife.
My wife shared the email with me and a few people we know in both the finance and education fields. All agreed that the entire scenario seemed implausible and seemed like an approach by a foreign intelligence entity.
To test the implausibility, my wife kept trying to encourage the “UK person” over email to meet with other school fundraising officers & leadership while “she” was in DC, providing relevant contact info. But the “UK person” kept insisting that “she” had to meet with my wife.
At that point, my wife stopped corresponding.
This all happened in late May and early June of last year.
Perhaps it was just a coincidence that this obvious scam targeting my family had all the hallmarks of an intel op and coincided with Team Trump’s reported efforts to “dig up dirt” on me.
But the fact that I even have to think about the possibility that my family was targeted by people working for the President is yet another sign of the fundamental degradation of our country that Trump has produced.
Exactly, Mr. Kahl, and more degradation is all this country can expect as long as Team drumpf befouls the Oval Office.
Thank You and Rebecca for your service to our nation.
