House Select Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes had five words during a recent interview on The John Batchelor Show about the Obama administration unmasking scandal rocking Washington.
The Committee just named three top Obama officials in subpoenas during their investigation into the unlawful unmasking of Americans close to the Trump campaign before and after the 2016 election. Those officials were: former UN ambassador Samantha Power, former CIA director John Brennan, and former White House National Security Advisor Susan Rice.
Rep. Devin Nunes initially broke the news about top Obama administration officials potentially abusing power several months ago. When the NSA collects data, the agency purposefully masks the identity of Americans to protect them from unlawful supervision.
The three named Obama administration officials allegedly requested that the identities of people on the Trump team be unmasked. Nunes has claimed that they were unmasked for political reasons.
During the interview Monday Nunes reiterated that it was “very unusual” for a UN ambassador like Power to unmask an American “under any circumstances, at any level…no matter where they are serving.”
The most interesting part is that those three named are only a few of those Nunes suspects of abusing their power, he says: “There are many more officials that we have concerns about abusing the intelligence programs.”

Something was definitely fishy in the allegedly “scandal-free” Obama administration. I am so excited for the Committee to move forward to these proceedings, and we will be reporting on them closely- so stay tuned!
