Another Obama Crony Caught Lying Under Oath About General Flynn
Former US Ambassador to the UN Samantha Power lied to Congress while under oath regarding the unmasking of General Flynn.
This isn’t just a maybe she lied under oath. She DID lie under oath and we have the proof.
Here is her testimony to Rep. Adam Schiff regarding Flynn:
“The number of unmasking requests by yourself began to go up dramatically in 2014,” Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., noted during his questioning of Power to explain why the topic of unmasking had been raised. “[L]et me then ask you about, sort of, maybe the gravamen of how this came about. And I think it came about over a concern about the leaking of Mike Flynn’s name.”
“So, to your knowledge, did you ever make [redacted]?” Schiff asked, likely referring to intercepts of Flynn’s conversations.
“I don’t recall making such a request,” Power said.
“And I just want to be clear that there’s no indication you ever made a request or that there necessarily was even a report on the subject. But I did want to get you on the record on that, because at the end of the day that’s sort of where this came from,” Schiff said.
“Yes, I have no recollection of making a request related to General Flynn,” Power again claimed.
“Okay,” Schiff said. “And I take it you never leaked Mr. Flynn’s name in any way, General Flynn’s name?”
“I have never leaked classified information,” Power said. “I have never leaked names that have come back to me in this highly compartmented process. I have, in fact, never leaked, even unclassified information.”
So she was clearly lying because there is no way that she appears on the request to unmask Flynn seven times and not recall that.
There has been a lot of lying going on and under oath at that. There should be some severe penalties that go along with this because this is, after all, perjury.
