Former UN Ambassador Samantha Power attempted to unmask more than 260 Americans

Power is scheduled to testify on Capitol Hill in October


Washington Examiner:

Former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power attempted to "unmask" more than 260 Americans' identities during 2016, even during the final days of the Obama administration.
Power is scheduled to testify on Capitol Hill in October, one of several Obama administration officials slated to do so, for her actions regarding revealing Trump associates' identities in intelligence reports, according to Fox News.
House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., submitted a letter in July to Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats that said the committee was aware "that one official, whose position had no apparent intelligence-related function, made hundreds of unmasking requests during the final year of the Obama Administration."
It is suspected that the official referenced is Power.
Power also was one of three top Obama administration officials named in subpoenas received by several of the nation's intelligence agencies in May.
Power is not the first U.N. ambassador to make unmasking requests, but Fox News reports the requests fall in the low double digits.
Power will meet with congressional intelligence committees as part of their Russia probes and is expected to appear before the House intelligence panel in a classified session next month.
