Mess Sucks

"The Russia Mess Sucks in Democrats, Too" (illustratively illustrated):
"It is reported that Simpson will only answer the committee’s questions if he is not asked for the name of the Democratic partisan who hired him in order to create what became Christopher Steele’s “Trump Dossier.”"
and:
"In May, Chairman Devin Nunes of the House Intelligence committee sent subpoenas to the NSA, CIA and FBI seeking documents related to unmasking requests by three former Obama officials, CIA Director John Brennan, National Security Adviser Susan Rice and Power.  
At the time, the odd detail was the inclusion of Power, since it is common sense that UN ambassadors have little use for unmasking the names of Americans who are overheard in the course of surveilling a communication by a foreign national.
Last week, in an extraordinary letter to Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats, Nunes reported, “…(W)e have found evidence that current and former government officials had easy access to U.S. person information and that it is possible that they used this information to achieve partisan political purposes, including the selective, anonymous leaking of such information.”
Nunes — whose own unmasking requests have been the subject of much scrutiny — focused on one name of the three he identified in May:
“(T)his Committee has learned that one official, whose position has no apparent intelligence-related function, made hundreds of unmasking requests during the final year of the Obama Administration.”
It is generally assumed and reported that this “one official” was Power."
It is funny that the only real scandal uncovered so far - and the only evidence of an attempt at foreign interference in the American election - is what Fusion GPS was up to, and how the Obama Administration's (mainly Power's) misuse of surveillance information fits into the picture.  Fear of this attack on Trump backfiring may explain why some of the traitors in the mainstream media are starting to slowly back away from the Russia allegations.
