Unmasking and surveillance: Here’s the REAL Washington scandal that’s being ignored

Christopher WilsonRebel Commentator

What's the real scandal in US politics right now? Is it the breathless coverage of supposed Trump-Russia collusion put on by the anti-Trump media, the so called ‘resistance’, and Hillary Clinton in her ridiculous blame-everyone but herself speech yesterday? 

Or is it the investigation into whether the Obama Administration inappropriately used powers to spy on the American people and members of Trump’s transition team or campaign team?

Yesterday, the Wall Street Journal reported that US House Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes slapped three former Obama administration appointees with subpoenas.

Subpoenas demanding information for unmasking requests were issued to former CIA director John Brennan, former White House National Security Advisor Susan Rice, and United Nations Ambassador Samantha Power.

What is “unmasking”? It’s the uncommon practice of revealing the identity of everyday US citizens when communication is accidentally intercepted in intelligence reports. The reason this is uncommon is because the US likes to protect the privacy of its citizens, or at least it did before the Obama Administration.

Watch as I show you an interesting statement given by Brennan to congress last week now that Power has been subpoenaed. I’ll also explain why all of this needs to considered in the context of recent revelations that the Obama administration spied on the US public and did so while being castigated by the very FISA court they were using to do so.

Again I ask - what’s the bigger scandal? The Russia collusion accusations made with no evidence, just conjecture and derangement from the left, or the unmasking of American citizens some of whom may have been specifically targeted for working with the Trump campaign or transition team?

Given the Obama administration’s history of spying on its own people and all the evidence presented and subpoenas now served by Chairman Nunes to Obama officials, I think I have my answer.

Barak Hussein Obama = Taquiyya at it’s best = Muslim Caliphate… Tell me if I’m wrong in the old folks home some 10 years from now… Or rather give me an Order of Canada for being prescient…

It was funny seeing the left wing hypocrites defending Susan Rice and saying she can unmask who she wants, but Trump was crapped on for supposedly speaking of classified info , which he has the power to declassify at any time. SAD HYPOCRITES! Funny how the people on the left do not want to testify , but Trumps people are more than ready.

Just looking in Obama’s eyes you can see the psychopath inside. I wonder if Michelle is still dressing up her dogs in jewels for her cocktail parties?

I find it very interesting!
Here we have a real story, and even the regular people who post on this site are quiet. I mean not even the trolls are quoting some sort of defense for that piece of shit president. I wish they would open the books up on Obama. But now I am really dreaming, because he is the golden boy that never was.

But of course!… The US media’s fervent attempt to push the “Russian interference” agenda is a desperate attempt to distract from the real crimes of the Obama administration during its eight years… From Fast and Furious to Benghazi to Lois Lerner’s IRS hounding of religious groups it is a blatant ploy to magically distract from the real crime of Obama’s eight years… Fortunately, with Barak and family hiding behind the high wall of of his new $8.1 million residence in Washington, historians will keep digging now that he is no longer able to suppress the facts… Mark my words… There is going to be “tons” of poop hitting the fan in the coming years from his questionable scholarships, university appointments,associations with known anarchists and then his presidency which did NOTHING to stymie the growth of the Muslim Caliphate…

Obama was a commie despot, that’s how they roll. I think the real ticking time bomb in DC right now is the crime no fake media will touch and the investigation that Soros is running interference on by having Hannity silenced by his pressure NGOs.

The reopening of the Seth Rich murder has High placed Dems, DNC and the head swamp critter peeing her pant suit.

So now we know the real reason for the Russian scandal, is to act as a distraction, and possibly to justify their conduct to the ignorant public, or at the very least create confusion, their number one friend!!

Christopher Wilson, I agree with your conclusion.
I would be most interested in hearing from Carter Page!
No shock Obama illegally spied on citizens. The list of illegal activities keeps growing.

The Democrats can’t cook up scandals for the Republicans that don’t eventually lead back to them and their own very real scandals.

Perhaps we could have a double hanging Whaco and The Trud.

This is what the socialist utopia looks like.

Obama was the worst thing to ever happen to the US. He should be hung as a traitor.
commented 2017-06-01 18:09:47 -0400
Where is Obama hiding these days? If he was so innocent wouldn’t he still be singing and dancing in the American libtard lime light?

Not really surprised that the islamic UN would be involved.
