Very Swampian – Trey Gowdy: Samantha Power Did Not Make Unmasking Requests Attributed to Her…

Hmmm… obtuse swampy defense surfaces. CTH smells the strong residue of UniParty Flak and Countermeasures. Unfortunately, not necessarily surprising.

During an interview with Fox News Brett Baier, the Chairman of the House Oversight Committee, Trey Gowdy, claims former Ambassador Samantha Power did not initiate all the unmasking incidents attributed to her.  [Video Prompted – just hit play]

[04:35 Video] Brett Baier: “You are also looking, and have talked to the former Ambassador to the United Nations, Samantha Power. We reported that she requested or her officer requested 260 plus efforts to unmask, in other words, get who was talking about picked up in surveillance. How did she answer that question? Why so many?”

Trey Gowdy: “Well, I’ll tell you broadly, uh Brett, I think if she was on your show, she would say those attempt to unmask may have been attributed to her. But they greatly exceed, by an exponential factor, the requests that she actually made.  So that’s her testimony, uh, and, and she was pretty emphatic.  The surveillance community, the intelligence community, has assigned this number of requests to her – her perspective, her testimony is: ‘they may be under my name, but I did not make those requests‘.”

“So, we’ve got to get to the bottom of that; if there was someone else making requests on behalf of a principal in the intelligence community we need to know that because we are getting ready to reauthorize a program, that’s really important to the country, but also has a masking component to it.”


Suspicious cat remains increasingly suspicious.

          it is the area of the “Patriot Act” that allows for FISA surveillance of foreign subversives that have the possibility of catching up US citizens as “collateral” suspects…..this part requires a high level official to “unmask” the US citizen to know their identity otw it is just given as citizen 1 citizen 2 etc.

    Well, if unmasking requests are being made by someone under Samantha Power’s name not named Samantha Power, that is a big effin’ deal. It should be a three alarm big effin’ deal. So, unmaking is being done and we do not have accurate records of who is making the request. Was Power an active facilitator in 4th Amendment violations of US citizens or just an unsuspecting patsy? Let me predict right now that we will never know which.

      I am at a point where I just can’t believe how arrogant all these POS are! Comey writing up his acquittal of HRC before anyone is interviewed. Bill meeting with Loretta Lynch on the tarmac. Loretta telling Comey not to call it an investigation. Samantha Powers claiming a majority of the requests where made by someone else in her name.

      Is this how far we as a country have fallen? They are going to reauthorize this knowing anyone can make a request and claim someone else did it? Nunez tells the country that the documents he saw had nothing to do with Russia. Where the talking about our FLOTUS and how envious they are of our President?

      This is beyond sad! I see absolutely no justice for any of them. Amazing!

    It sounds to me that Gowdy is just relaying the facts of her testimony.

    He doesn’t seem too upset though, other than than to say they need to know who did unmask in her name so they can evaluate renewal of program.

    Are unmasking controls that loose?

    Seems to me the exact name and purpose for unmasking should be documented and evaluated on a regular basis.

    It’s all still fishy and smells of political corruption. Someone better get to the bottom of it.

The Obama regime was totally crooked…and the RINOs really aren’t much better. Weak, feckless and just making sure that their donors are happy.

    This is where having a left-wing press pays big dividends for the Dem/Left. And the next biggest dividend comes from the flaccid RINO.

    Now, I use to like Gowdy as much as the next person and, like you, I certainly enjoy seeing him dismember the left. However, I have my concerns. They stem from one simple question: “What has Gowdy actually accomplished?”

    Gowdy’s interrogations may be exciting, but they have a nasty habit of going …nowhere. You can certainly argue that the Benghazi hearings, which produced the now-infamous “what difference does it make” clip, damaged Hillary’s eventual candidacy. You can also make a fair point that, in a town where corruption and criminality are rife, it’s nice to have someone who knows how to make a show of opposing it.
    However, if you’re hoping that someone will drill down to the bottom of the left’s myriad transgressions – and that the people involved will face actual penalties – I’m not sure Gowdy’s track record is so great.
    Don’t get me wrong. I’m not trashing the guy. As I said, I like him. At this point, though, I want someone who does more than make me “like” what they’re doing. I want some results. I want heads to roll, and charges to be pressed.
    …But I can’t ignore the sneaking suspicion that we’ve been watching theater. Good theater, mind you, but theater nonetheless.
    It’s time for the show to end.
    I do think Gowdy needs to return to civilian life
