Even now you're saying 'off-chance' that they might've been doing a legitimate investigation, despite admitting that this story is likely in part coming from Olshey (who the majority of us have agreed over the last nine plus years that he leaks data to Woj to get a positive spin).
quite a bit of subjectivity to unpack there, but I won't bother
I'll just say I define 'off-chance' as less than 50-50 and my take is if there's path that could be either of principle or profit, I'd assign a better than even chance the Vulcans are on the path because of profit. Principle could be a bi-product though. A battle for the moral high ground will find both sides standing in the same dirt, IMO
