Lib Media Silent About Former Obama Official Who Went on an Unmasking Spree

When it was revealed earlier this year that then-President-elect Donald Trump’s transition officials had their identities unmasked by Obama administration officials, the liberal media was uninterested in covering the bombshell revelations.

Initial reporting revealed that several top officials in the Obama administration like National Security Adviser Susan Rice and Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes were reportedly involved in the unmasking of Trump officials.

According to the Daily Caller, a new report shows that former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power was involved in unmasking the identities of roughly 260 Americans in 2016 alone.

“Unmasking” is an intelligence term used to describe the process of revealing the identity of an individual whose communications are being monitored. The intelligence community often monitors the communications of foreign actors who are on U.S. soil.

If the foreign actor is communicating with a U.S. citizen, the U.S. citizen’s identity remains anonymous and can only be revealed following a formal unmasking request.

Power reportedly made at least one unmasking request for each working day, with a notable increase in requests toward the end of Obama’s term in office.

Power, Rice, Rhodes and former CIA Director John Brennan have all been named as “persons of interest” in an unmasking probe led by the House Intelligence Committee.

According to Fox News, these former Obama officials are prepared to testify before Congress in October, but they will likely do so in a closed session because they don’t want their statements made public.

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., sent a letter on July 27 to Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats after it was revealed that one unnamed official was aggressively unmasking the identities of American citizens in Obama’s final year in office.

The letter said the committee had become aware “that one official, whose position had no apparent intelligence-related function, made hundreds of unmasking requests during the final year of the Obama Administration.”

During his testimony in March before the Senate Intelligence Committee, NSA Director Mike Rogers said only 20 people at the NSA, including a small number of officials at the FBI, CIA, and Justice Department, have the authorization to make unmasking requests about Americans.

In short, a congressional committee is looking into whether former Obama officials illegally or inappropriately unmasked Trump campaign officials, with Power’s aggressive unmasking in late 2016 being a main issue.

Despite all of this, the liberal media refuses to cover this bombshell story.

The left-leaning media remain focused on the Russia investigation — which has yet to offer any proof of collusion between Trump members and Russia officials during the 2016 presidential election — rather than anything that might expose Obama of any wrongdoing.

While several former Obama officials have been named as persons of interest, it appears congressional investigators are honing in on Power.

The American people to deserve to know the truth behind this report, and who in the Obama administration ordered the unmasking of American identities.
