New documents unearthed this week now reveal former President Barack Obama’s United Nations Ambassador Samantha Power -already at the center of an ongoing ‘unmasking’ scandal- also spewed anti-Trump hatred while in office.
“It turns out that Power — the diplomat whose authority inexplicably was used to unmask hundreds of Americans’ names in secret intelligence reports during the 2016 election — engaged in similar Trump-bashing on her official government email, according to documents unearthed by an American Center for Law and Justice lawsuit. The conservative legal group is run by Trump defense attorney Jay Sekulow,” adds the reporter.
“The discovery could add a new dimension — a question of political bias — to a long-running congressional investigation into why Power’s authority was used to unmask hundreds of Americans’ names in secret National Security Agency intercepts during the 2016 election. That practice of unmasking continues to grow today,” Solomon concludes.
“Oskar, Norm will explain our political system, in a way that will fleetingly make it seem rational, though maybe not after Trump and Sanders win NH,” wrote Power; assuming a pivotal primary victory for both Bernie Sanders and then-underdog Donald Trump.
