More Intel Leaks: Nunes Letter To FBI Outlines “Hundreds of Unmasking Requests”…

According to a report from The Hill, structured around the leaking of a letter sent by House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes to the FBI, “The letter was provided to The Hill from a source in the intelligence community“, outlines a massive amount of unmasking done by Obama officials in 2016.

(Via The Hill) […] “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.

[…]  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.”

His letter noted requests from senior government officials, unlike career intelligence analysts, “made remarkably few individualized justifications for access” to the U.S. names.

“The committee has learned that one official, whose position had no apparent intelligence related function, made hundreds of unmasking requests during the final year of the Obama administration,” Nunes wrote. “Of those requests, only one offered a justification that was not boilerplate.”

Sources familiar with the Nunes letter identified the official as then-U.N. Ambassador Samantha Power.

Power did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Nunes also wrote that “Obama-era officials sought the identities of Trump transition officials within intelligence reports.”  (read more)

    Don’t forget it was also recently revealed that there were some who specifically searched names related to the Trump campaign. There were others who unmasked names that were the same names in the leaks to the media

      And Mueller is to appear before this committee tomorrow. This is the biggest enchilada. This lets Sessions and DOJ produce evidence against DNC/Deep State without looking like a personal vendetta by Trump. Brilliant, really. Planned long ago. The date of 7/27 was posted as a big date by Anon. Turned out to be true.

        Hank Tippy-Guam Johnson thinks this administration is leading the country to a dark place and his face was cleanly shaved but he forgot to shave under his neck. He also was briefly reprimanded for saying that the current administration is traitorous. They were about to withdraw his comments from the record but he weaseled out of it. Jim Jordan and Louis Gohment had great comments while I actually learned that Sheila Jackson Lee can do two things at once….talk and shuffle papers at the same time. She’s a mean angry looking woman.

        I watched two hours of it – very informative.

    Need to fire everyone linked to the DNC (Communist Party) due to integrity issues and lack of moral character.

    Just wondering….did some of the spying on some of the people result in altered behavior by those people after making them aware of the fact that their activities had been monitored?

    If the Clintons and Obama used illegally gathered information not only for “political puposes” but also for purposes of blackmail would that make the case for prosecution–even by fellow members of the sewer—a bit stronger?

    I’m thinking that it would be interesting to see if they conducted illegal “survelliance” on certain supreme court judges, generals, or even members of Congress.

    To be perfectly honest, I am convinced that this was done and just pray that they uncover all of it and that somebody has the guts to help the President lock them all up.

    Apparently there are multiple simultaneous calls by Congressional Republicans for investigation of various Democrats (see links). Is the worm turning?

    Samantha Powers husband

    Sunstein co-wrote a truly pernicious paper proposing that the U.S. Government employ teams of covert agents and pseudo-“independent” advocates to “cognitively infiltrate” online groups and websites — as well as other activist groups — which advocate views that Sunstein deems “false conspiracy theories” about the Government.  This would be designed to increase citizens’ faith in government officials and undermine the credibility of conspiracists. 

    Sunstein advocates that the Government’s stealth infiltration should be accomplished by sending covert agents into “chat rooms, online social networks, or even real-space groups.”  He also proposes that the Government make secret payments to so-called “independent” credible voices to bolster the Government’s messaging (on the ground that those who don’t believe government sources will be more inclined to listen to those who appear independent while secretly acting on behalf of the Government).
