Yesterday the Wall Street Journal reported that seven subpoenas had been issued by the House Intelligence Committee.
The House Intelligence Committee issued seven subpoenas on Wednesday, in a sign that its investigation into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 election is advancing in scope and intensity, according to people familiar with the matter.
The Republican-led committee issued four subpoenas related to the Russia investigation, targeting President Donald Trump’s former national security adviser Mike Flynn, Mr. Trump’s personal attorney, Michael Cohen, and their businesses. The committee is also investigating possible ties between Trump associates and Russia.
Now, the four above are no surprise. The Democratic-led Russian Witch-Hunt has been going on for a little over 10 months. During this time they are yet to have found any evidence of collusion. What does come as surprise is who it receiving the other three subpoenas.
The other three subpoenas were issued to the National Security Agency, the FBI and the Central Intelligence Agency for information about a procedure known as “unmasking.” The subpoenas are related to questions about how and why the names of the president’s associates were unredacted and distributed within classified reports by Obama administration officials during the transition between administrations.
Later in the article, they explain more:
The most recent subpoenas to the intelligence agencies seek information on any requests made by former national security adviser Susan Rice, former CIA Director John Brennan and former United Nations Ambassador Samantha Power for names to be unmasked in classified material. The three didn’t personally receive subpoenas, the people familiar with the matter said.
So, these subpoenas have been issued to look into the actions of Susan Rice, John Brennan and Samantha Powers. I have covered extensively the Obama illegal surveillance/unmasking scandal and Susan Rice and John Brennan have both been a huge part of it. Susan Rice admittedly “unmasked” members of the Trump campaign.
She said that her unmaskings were completely legal. That was later contradicted by reports from Circa.
Circa has reported that there was a three-fold increase in NSA data searches about Americans and a rise in the unmasking of U.S. person’s identities in intelligence reports after Obama loosened the privacy rules in 2011.
Officials like former National Security Adviser Susan Rice have argued their activities were legal under the so-called minimization rule changes Obama made, and that the intelligence agencies were strictly monitored to avoid abuses.
The intelligence court and the NSA’s own internal watchdog found that not to be true.
“Since 2011, NSA’s minimization procedures have prohibited use of U.S.-person identifiers to query the results of upstream Internet collections under Section 702,” the unsealed court ruling declared. “The Oct. 26, 2016 notice informed the court that NSA analysts had been conducting such queries inviolation of that prohibition, with much greater frequency than had been previously disclosed to the Court.”
John Brennan also was involved. Brennan knew his days were numbered if Trump became President so he did everything he could to make sure Trump didn’t get elected.
Brennan had everything he stood for on the line. Not only would Trump show him the door but he would destroy the pro-jihadi climate Brennan believed in. This also further backs up the claims that Michael Flynn was politically assassinated and the reasons why.
What you are witnessing is a scandal that is bigger than Watergate. We are looking at a sitting President and a Presidential candidate from the same party colluding with domestic and foreign intelligence agencies to impact the election of the United States of America. They attempted to use foreign and domestic to dig up dirt on President Trump and force him out of office. When no real evidence was found and the witch hunt turned up empty they then attempted to use fake “circumstantial” evidence to delegitimize his presidency in the public eye.
This is an act of Treason by our government and the mainstream media refuses to cover it.
Now, the newest addition to the list is Former UN Ambassador Samatha Powers. I had her almost nothing about her involvement up to this point but she certainly could have been involved. Obama used foreign intelligence services, mostly the GCHQ to spy on President Trump and his associates. The UN Ambassador might have been used to help cultivate conversations over this.
The story here is that the Obama illegal surveillance scandal is finally garnering an investigation. It won’t be long before someone in the Obama administration is behind bars, maybe even Obama himself.
