The Transom, Ben Domenech, June 2, 2017

Susan Rice, John Brennan, and Samantha Power have been subpoenaed to testify on unmasking.  Be sure to watch the first few minutes of this clip, which include Trey Gowdy asking John Brennan about unmasking.   His body language here as he responds to questions about whether any ambassador requested unmasking is incredibly awkward – read into that what you will.

The bigger question is why Samantha Power would be doing this sort of thing anyway.  “Unmaskings are supposed to be rare, and if the mere ambassador to the U.N. could demand them, what privacy protection was the Obama White House really offering U.S. citizens? The House subpoenas should provide fascinating details about how often Ms. Power and her mates requested unmaskings, on which Trump officials, and with what justification. The public deserves to know given that unmasked details have been leaked to the press in violation of the law and privacy.”
