Queen of Unmaskings Samantha Power Showed Extreme Political Bias in Emails

So of course she should have unchecked power to "unmask" the anonymized Trump officials the Obama Administration was spying on!

PS: Somehow -- we don't know how, mind you -- those unmasked, de-anonymized surveillance records got leaked to the leftwing press.

Whoops! Whoopsie!

Former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power may share an unflattering stage with a text-loving FBI agent and his Donald Trump-hating paramour from the bureau.

...

It turns out that Power -- the diplomat whose authority inexplicably was used to unmask hundreds of Americans’ names in secret intelligence reports during the 2016 election -- engaged in similar Trump-bashing on her official government email, according to documents unearthed by an American Center for Law and Justice lawsuit. The conservative legal group is run by Trump defense attorney Jay Sekulow.


The discovery could add a new dimension -- a question of political bias -- to a long-running congressional investigation into why Power's authority was used to unmask hundreds of Americans' names in secret National Security Agency intercepts during the 2016 election. That practice of unmasking continues to grow today.


...

...

At first blush, the Power emails may seem to be nothing more than political screeds from government elitists exhibiting their disbelief that America elected Trump. But the president’s defenders and congressional investigators see reason for concern.

"The sheer political panic evidenced in Samantha Power’s emails shows that 'the fix was in' for the incoming administration even before the 45th president was sworn into office," said Sekulow, one of Trump's lawyers and founder of the center that successfully sued to obtain the documents.

One thing clear from Power's emails is an effort to turn a burgeoning Russia scandal against Trump during her final days in office.

For example, when a reporter emailed that he was working on a story advancing the Trump-Russia collusion theory, she asked Barack Obama’s deputy national security adviser, Ben Rhodes, to assist. "Sounds serious. Can you follow up, Ben?" she emailed.
