The Real Crimes That were Committed: Obama Aides Umasked Hundreds of Identities During Election Without Justification
AND NOW FOR SOME POLITICAL CORRUPTION, OBAMA STYLE …
From The Hill comes the following bombshell. Why wouldn’t anyone believe that Obama and his minions did such a thing? Following the 2010 midterm election loses, the Obama administration used the IRS against his enemies in The Tea Party. This just shows the lengths of corruption and political overreach that the Obama administration used to maintain power. Some one needs to go to prison for these acts against the American people.
Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), in a letter to Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats, said the requests were made without specific justifications on why the information was needed.
“We have found evidence that current and former government officials had easy access to U.S. person information and that it is possible that they used this information to achieve partisan political purposes, including the selective, anonymous leaking of such information,” Nunes wrote in the letter to Coats.
The letter was provided to The Hill from a source in the intelligence community.
In March, Nunes disclosed that he had seen data suggesting Trump campaign and transition officials were having their names unmasked by departing officials in the Obama White House.
National Security Adviser Susan Rice and CIA Director John Brennan have acknowledged making such requests though they insisted the requests were for legitimate work reasons.
Nunes recused himself from his committee’s work on its investigation over Russia’s meddling in the 2016 campaign after a controversy over his charges about Obama-era unmasking.
The chairman had reviewed intelligence reports on White House grounds that he said showed unmasking of Trump officials by Obama aides. Democrats accused him of working with the White House to make the disclosures.
In Thursday’s letter, Nunes said the total requests for Americans’ names by Obama political aides numbered in the hundreds during Obama’s last year in office and often lacked a specific intelligence community justification. He called the lack of proper justifications a “serious deficiency.”
Former United Nations ambassador, Samantha Power has been identified as a key ‘unmasking’ within the previous administration.
