On Sam Dastyari’s downfall

Edward Zakrzewski writes:  Re. “Dastyari’s inevitable downfall and the case for a federal ICAC” (Tuesday) 

Does anyone know who bugged his phone or who released the tape? Will the AFP raid any offices of the Coalition to discover the source of the leak and will the media be told in advance? Most importantly, what other politicians are having their phone conversations tapped for future release. I suggest we have another postal plebiscite to see if we prefer to be on the side of the US or China in any future possible conflict.

Was Dastyari guilty of any criminal act? Did he take a $8000,000 pa job having been a minister in the area?  Was he the only pollie to accept a benefit from the Chinese? Did the PM also entertain the Chinese business man? Why did the old story about the senator surface just now? Who leaked the story?
