ACLJ: Samantha Power Slammed Trump In Private Email Exchanges With Media During 2016 Election
The American Center for Law and Justice recently obtained new documents revealing former United Nations Ambassador Samantha Power exchanged anti-Trump emails with top media officials and was communicating with former FBI Special Agent Peter Strzok and FBI attorney Lisa Page.
Strzok and Page were investigated by the FBI and the Department of Justice after anti-Trump text messages were found on their government cell phones. The pair were also on the Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team early in his investigation into President Trump. Strzok was removed from Mueller’s team after the discovery of the text messages and was later fired from the bureau.
Page, who worked directly with former Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, left the Mueller investigation and later resigned from her work at the bureau. McCabe was also fired from the bureau by former Department of Justice Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
Strzok and Page led the now debunked FBI investigation into the Trump campaign and Russia.
John Solomon with The Hill first posted the email exchanges obtained by the ACLJ. The organization was founded by Jay Sekulow, who is also serving as Trump’s defense attorney.
Power had unmasked nearly 300 names in her final days as United Nations Ambassador during 2016 and early 2017. The information was discovered by then congressman Trey Gowdy, who questioned both Power and former CIA Director John Brennan about the unmasking of American names.
Powers emails are very telling.
Power bashed Trump after the 2016 presidential election on her official government account, as posted by Solomon.
“I am discouraged and frightened. Electing a right-wing president is something, but such a morally repugnant bully!” read a Nov. 14, 2016, email to Power from a sender whose name the State Department redacted for privacy reasons. The email referred to former Trump strategist Steve Bannon as “an avowed racist” and predicted, “The worst is coming.”
