A Phone Call (Please pass to Edward Snowden)

As then U.S. ambassador to Russia, Michael McFaul [see] often faced hostile treatment at the hands of Mr. Putin's government. One day in 2012, he says, he was surprised to get a call from Mrs. Clinton on an unsecure telephone line. He answered and listened as she praised him for the job he was doing and told him she was "100% behind you," Mr. McFaul recalls.

He later saw her in person and asked why she had called him on a phone that could have been tapped by the Russian government.

"She said, 'I wanted everybody to hear,' " Mr. McFaul says. "It was done on purpose."
