Barack Obama cannot afford to rest easy.
Trey Gowdy is digging into one of his worst scandals.
And now he’s uncovered an awful secret that is bad news for Obama and his henchmen.
Republicans are still trying to dig out the full extent of Obama’s spying and unmasking scandal.
A key player is now former U.N. Ambassador Samantha Power.
She made 260 unmasking requests – an insane number for someone whose job did not really have an intelligence function.
But in an interview on Fox News, Gowdy revealed a secret that shows no one has even scratched the surface of this scandal.
Gowdy informed Fox News viewers that in her testimony, Power dropped a bombshell that she did not make all 260 unmasking requests.
Many were made in her name.
Fox News reports:
Former President Barack Obama’s ambassador to the United Nations has testified that others made so-called unmasking requests in her name, House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy said Tuesday.
“Her testimony is they may be under my name, but I did not make those requests,” Gowdy said of former Ambassador Samantha Power during an interview with Fox News’ Bret Baier on “Special Report with Bret Baier.”
Power is among the Obama administration figures who made requests to identify Americans whose names surfaced in foreign intelligence reporting, known as unmasking.

Last month, Fox News reported that Power 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.
“I think if she were on your show, she would say those requests to unmask may have been attributed to her, but they greatly exceed by an exponential factor the requests she actually made,” Gowdy said. “So, that’s her testimony, and she was pretty emphatic in it.”
The South Carolina Republican added, “So, we’ve got to get to the bottom of that. If there is someone else making requests on behalf of a principal in the intelligence community, we need to know that because we’re getting ready to reauthorize a program that’s really important to the country, but also has a masking component to it.”
This raises a horrifying question.
Why was someone requesting the unmasking of American citizens in Samantha Power’s name?
Only a select few individuals have the authority to submit unmasking requests.
If someone had the authority to request unmask American citizens, why were they impersonating Power?
And if they did not, why was the Obama administration so lax on verifying who was handling this classified information.
Some critics would argue all of this was an elaborate set up to cover the perpetrators tracks so they could illegally leak classified information to the press as part of the Deep State coup against Trump.
Will Trey Gowdy discover the truth?
