The Obama spying scandal continues to unravel.
Explosive new revelations pop up every day.
Now the scandal is blowing wide open now that a key Deep State leaker has been identified.
Former U.N. Ambassador Samantha Power has shot to the forefront of the scandal.
She has been identified as a key player in the unmasking of Trump officials caught up in incidental surveillance.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
“Former United Nations Ambassador Samantha Power’s involvement in the unmasking by former Obama administration officials of sensitive national security information is raising red flags over what insiders view was an attempt by the former administration to undermine President Donald Trump and key figures on his team, according to current and former U.S. officials familiar with the situation.
Power appears to be central to efforts by top Obama administration officials to identify individuals named in classified intelligence community reports related to Trump and his presidential transition team, according to multiple sources.
The names of Trump allies in the raw intelligence reports were leaked to the press in what many in Congress and the current administration claim is an attempt by Obama allies and former officials to damage the White House.”
Why was Power – who was a U.N. Ambassador – requesting the unmasking of Trump officials?
Her official duties would not include anything that would require that information.
The Free Beacon reports some believe there was a sinister motive to her requests:
“The Intelligence Committee’s focus of Power and other key Obama officials is a prime example of the Obama administration’s efforts to spy on those close to Trump, according to sources familiar with the ongoing investigation.
“The subpoena for Power suggests just how pervasive the Obama administration’s spying on Americans actually was,” said one veteran GOP political operative who has been briefed on the matter by senior Congressional intelligence officials. “The U.N. ambassador has absolutely no business calling for the quantity and quality of the intelligence that Power seems to have been asking for.”
The source questioned why Power would need to uncover such classified intelligence information in her role at the U.N.
“That’s just not the sort of thing that she should have been concerned about, unless she was playing the role of political operative with the help of the intelligence community,” the source said. “It gives away what was actually going on: the Obama administration was operating in a pervasive culture of impunity and using the intelligence community against their political opponents.”
The Russia scandal is fake news.
The real story is the illegal leaks of classified information Obama loyalists in the Deep State have used to stage a silent coup against Donald Trump.
Tracking down the leakers means identifying who unmasked the Trump officials and exposed the information to a wider circle of individuals.
Samantha Power’s testimony is crucial to identifying the links in the chain that connect the leakers to the press.
Once the leakers are identified, they can be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
