Ignoring the Samantha Power bombshell

One of the challenges of Spygate is that it’s such a sprawling, complicated tale, filled with competing narratives and motives open to interpretation.  We understand that this is a serious situation – possibly the biggest scandal in U.S. history.  But how can one get the message across to the average American without his eyes glazing over?

To cut through the complexity, it helps to focus on specific actions by individuals that we all can agree are suspect.  This brings us to Samantha Power.

As you recall, Power was caught using her security clearance as a U.N. ambassador to review private conversations by U.S. citizens.  According to official records, she requested the unmasking of these private citizens over 260 times in 2016 (this was an election year).  She was brought before the House Intelligence Committee to explain her actions.

Her defense?  It wasn’t me.  Someone else in the Obama White House did this, using her security clearance.
