Washington Free Beacon Senior Writer Adam Kredo appeared on Fox News's "Hannity" Friday night, where he told host Sean Hannity that it is "unprecedented" how many people were unmasked by then-United Nations Ambassador Samantha Power during the final year of the Obama administration.
Power is believed to have made "hundreds" of unmasking requests to "identify individuals named in classified intelligence community reports related to Trump and his presidential transition team, according to multiple sources who said the behavior is unprecedented for an official in her position," according to the Washington Free Beacon.
Hannity asked Kredo how Power would ever have the authority to make the unmasking requests, and then asked whether this has ever happened previously to his knowledge.
"No, it's truly unprecedented," Kredo said. "It's certainly odd, and I think the House Intelligence Committee, rightfully so, has subpoenaed her to find out what is going on here. Look, it's hundreds of unmasking requests in just the final year of the Obama administration."
"The fact that this information subsequently leaked to the press, I think raises even more questions about why a U.N ambassador over in Turtle Bay needs to unmask," Kredo said.
