    Ignoring the Samantha Power bombshell
    https://www.americanthinker.com/blog...bombshell.html

    ...Of all the political stories from 2017, surely the most curious is this: why is everyone ignoring the bombshell revelations from Samantha Power?

    As you recall, Power was caught using her security clearance as a U.N. ambassador to review private conversations by U.S. citizens. According to official records, she requested the unmasking of these private citizens over 260 times in 2016 (this was an election year). She was brought before the House Intelligence Committee to explain her actions.

    Her defense? It wasn't me. Someone else in the Obama White House did this, using her security clearance.

    There are two possibilities: that she is telling the truth, in which case someone else in the Obama administration is lying. Or she is lying herself.

    Let's consider the implications if she's lying. Power, a supposed human rights activist and darling of the left, came into her office every day – Monday through Friday, 52 weeks a year – and did some reading. But instead of the New York Times, or her favorite blog, she was reading the transcripts of private conversations of her fellow Americans, wiretapped by federal agents. And not only that, but she made a request each day on average to unmask a U.S. citizen in those transcripts.

    Why are our supposed human rights activists not horrified? Why is this not a daily banner headline in every major newspaper in the country? I could see the MSM attempting to hide this damning evidence of Obama administration malfeasance, but why are the conservative news outlets not clamoring for answers?

    ...No one, it seems, is asking even the most basic questions: who was this mysterious, nameless Obama administration official? Why would he use Samantha Power's security clearance to unmask U.S. citizens? What did he have to hide? And if he was researching something that was purely legal, why the necessity for such subterfuge and deceit?

    The only answer that makes sense is that this official was using Power's security clearance for reasons that would not stand up to legal scrutiny, most likely for political or possibly illegal ends – such as spying on the Trump campaign.

    A final thought: Why is Samantha Power herself so seemingly unconcerned about this violation of public trust? Wouldn't you expect this brave journalist, the winner of the Pulitzer Prize, the champion of the people, to be at least a little bit curious as to exactly who it was in the Obama administration who stole her passwords and used her security clearance in such a blatantly undemocratic and unlawful manner?

    And wouldn't you expect her to speak up about it?

    Her husband is Cass Sunstein, columnist at Bloomberg.


    Once his tenuous connections are shredded beyond salvaging, she'll go down. Not sure he will too, but he may. As Obama's head of the Office Of Information And Regulatory Affairs, he was better known as Obama's Conspiracy Czar.


    The scary thing was that hrc might've nominated him for the Supreme Court. As for Powers, we didn't get to see if hrc would've insured that no 'powerful' woman was put in a position to challenge her authority at the Cabinet-level.

    ' Apparatchick '... a word I've been seeing a lot lately.

    An official of a 'Soviet-like' political group, already in-hiding from a disgraceful UN abstention-vote on a resolution condemning Israel, previously in-hiding from calling the United States an 'Empire'... is now in-hiding from the charge of unmasking innocent Americans' private communications with innocent people in other Countries.

    Nah. I just used that word instead of incognito, or self-imposed hiding.


    She's probably also hiding from that HBO-doc I haven't seen yet, released a few days ago. Everybody crying in their beer over Hillary losing.

    What a great night for HBO. I guess they're into group therapy now.
