Barack Obama’s Deep State has enjoyed months of free shots at Donald Trump.
That just changed in a big way.
The Deep State is finished after one of its operatives was caught red-handed in a massive scandal.
Obama’s Deep State repeatedly damaged the Trump administration through unmasking associates who were caught up in foreign surveillance and then illegally leaking that information to the press.
These illegal leaks are what ultimately forced out former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn.
Obama’s former National Security Advisor Susan Rice was revealed to have requested the unmasking of Trump officials after lying about having any knowledge of unmasking activities in a TV interview.
But she was not the worst offender.
Former U.N. Ambassador Samantha Power requested the unmasking of 260 Americans in 2016.
That averages one unmasking request for every working day of the year.
Fox News reported:
“Samantha Power, the former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, was ‘unmasking’ at such a rapid pace in the final months of the Obama administration that she averaged more than one request for every working day in 2016 – and even sought information in the days leading up to President Trump’s inauguration, multiple sources close to the matter told Fox News.
Two sources, who were not authorized to speak on the record, said the requests to identify Americans whose names surfaced in foreign intelligence reporting, known as unmasking, exceeded 260 last year. One source indicated this occurred in the final days of the Obama White House.
The details emerged ahead of an expected appearance by Power next month on Capitol Hill. She is one of several Obama administration officials facing congressional scrutiny for their role in seeking the identities of Trump associates in intelligence reports – but the interest in her actions is particularly high.
In a July 27 letter to Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., said the committee had learned “that one official, whose position had no apparent intelligence-related function, made hundreds of unmasking requests during the final year of the Obama Administration.”
The “official” is widely reported to be Power.”
White House Counselor Kellyanne Conway ripped the Obama administration for their repeated lies about unmasking Trump officials.
