Evelyn Farkas, Obama’s Official, Urged Others to Collect Intel on Trump (video)

Posted by FactReal on March 30, 2017

Evelyn Farkas, Obama’s Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense, confessed March 2 to MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski how she and others collected and disseminated intelligence on Trump’s team and their alleged ties with Russia.

Here is a transcript:

BRZEZINSKI: Evelyn Farkas, the other big story of the day.

You actually knew about this attempt to get and preserve information and for transparency were doing some work yourself. Tell us about it.

FARKAS: I was urging my former colleagues and — and frankly speaking — the people on the Hill, it was more actually aimed at telling the Hill people, get as much information as you can, get as much intelligence as you can, before President Obama leaves the administration. Because I had a fear that somehow that information would disappear with the senior [Obama] people who left so it would be hidden away in the bureaucracy, um, that the Trump folks – if they found out how we knew what we knew about their — the staff –the Trump staff dealing with Russians – that they would try to compromise those sources and methods, meaning we would no longer have access to that intelligence.

So I became very worried because not enough was coming out into the open and I knew that there was more. We have very good intelligence on Russia. So then I had talked to some of my former colleagues and I knew that they were trying to also help get information to the Hill.

BRZEZINSKI: A lot going on today…

FARKAS: Yeah. That’s why you have the leaking…

(CROSSTALK)

BRZEZINSKI: …Mark…Exactly.

FARKAS: …people are worried.

On March 1, the New York Times published this article, “Obama Administration Rushed to Preserve Intelligence of Russian Election Hacking.
