Over the last year or so journalist Sara Carter has done amazing work digging into and uncovering the tremendous amount of malfeasance that was hiding just below the surface of the Obama era.
While the D.C. political class and the national media have been focused on everything “Trump,” including the possibility of a Trump-Russia connection, Carter and her publishers at CIRCA have proven real criminal activity from Obama and the Democrats.
Carter is an award-winning journalist and she’s recently begun to worry that Congress hasn’t already started an investigation into the Obama administration’s extensive use of “political espionage.”
She was one of the first reporters to reveal Obama administration political espionage, and unprecedented unmasking and surveillance of Americans by using the national security apparatus. The Obama administration loosened the privacy protections for innocent Americans in 2011 – including accessing information from priests, attorney/client relationships, and doctors, she said.
The administration scoured Americans’ private conversations “at an exponential rate,” she said. From 2011 to January 2017, the unmasking increased over 300 percent. She also revealed the Obama administration was accessing emails at a rate of one out of every 20 Americans, an incredible 5 percent of citizens.
She believes Congress should subpoena Obama officials Susan Rice, Samantha Power and John Brennan as well as understand who was unmasked, why and what they were looking for, as she does not think it was national security related.
There was early evidence of the Obama administration using government national security tools to accomplish their political goals. Journalist Lee Smith wrote in April about the Obama team unmasking what their political opponents on the Iran deal were doing and saying. He said, they “have exposed themselves to risk, by creating a potential criminal trail that may expose systematic abuse of foreign-intelligence collection.”
Carter has a hard time understanding why her fellow journalists have become so hung up on the Trump-Russia stories when so little evidence of wrongdoing has been provided, yet when she and her colleagues prove that there was wrongdoing during the Obama era… no one seems interested.
Moreover, Carter is surprised that the Trump-Russia stories garnered so much attention when there was always MORE evidence of collusion between the Clinton team and Russia than there ever was between the Trump team and Russia.
Just the past week the Podesta Group was forced to file new paperwork with the Department of Justice admitting that they had done quit a bit of pro-Putin work that they had never disclosed.
The Podesta Group belatedly filed several new disclosures with the Justice Department on Aug. 17 related to work the firm completed between 2012 and 2014 on behalf of a pro-Russia Ukrainian think tank.
Back in April, the powerful Washington lobbying firm run by Clinton ally Tony Podesta filed a document admitting its work for the pro-Russia European Centre for a Modern Ukraine may have principally benefited a foreign government. New disclosures revealed dozens of previously unreported interactions the firm made with influential government offices, including Hillary Clinton’s State Department and the office of former Vice President Joe Biden, while lobbying on behalf of the center.
We desperately need more journalists like Carter who are searching for truth rather than attempting to reinforce their own biases.
