Mercury (communication) is about to go retrograde (the past) so it’s a good time to dig up old stories relevant to current ones, particularly any relating to blackmail as blackmail is a theme very relevant to the current transit of Saturn (brass tack reality, repression) through Scorpio (secrets). For instance, buried in a 2009 NY Times article about the NSA is this gem:
The former analyst added that his instructors had warned against committing any abuses, telling his class that another analyst had been investigated because he had improperly accessed the personal e-mail of former President Bill Clinton. (Source)
When Edward Snowden said he had the ability to look at Barack Obama’s email if he wanted a number of pundit/expert/apologist types said that was impossible but from the looks of the above article he was telling the truth. Does it affect you or me? Well if employees (and thus also executives) of major military-industrial contractors can access the emails of presidents they can also access the emails of congress and even judges – including those on the Supreme Court. Which means they can also blackmail them.
