A new development in the federal probe into the unmasking of American citizens by the Obama administration has revived the question of whether President Trump should pardon General Michael Flynn.
On Friday, OANN correspondent Jack Posobiec tweeted that Flynn was targeted as a result of an unmasking campaign launched to attack officials expressing support for Israel.
“[Former UN ambassador] Samantha Power targeted any call made about Israeli settlements for unmasking. When she found Gen Flynn making calls she opposed, she passed information to Sally Yates who opened Logan Act investigation,” Posobiec said.
A follow-up tweet elaborated that “White House plans to declassify documents showing that Samantha Power was on a “one-woman crusade” for the Palestinians and against Israel in 2016.
“Repeated unmaskings were used to ensure her effort did not fail,” Posibiec said.
Ultimately, Flynn was convicted, not of violating the Logan Act, but of lying about his Russian contacts — a conviction that Trump described as “so sad on so many levels.”
