Evelyn Farkas to Obama: Release FBI Info on Trump Dossier (Op-Ed on 1/12/2017)

Posted by FactReal on April 4, 2017

EvelynFarkasSpyNovelTrumpPutinDays before Trump took oath, Evelyn Farkas (Obama’s infamous official) wrote an op-ed in Newsweek urging then-President Obama “to share with the public the information the FBI has to date” on the discredited Trump Dirty Dossier.

HIGHLIGHTS OF FARKAS’ OP-ED:
Besides asking Obama to release FBI intel on Trump:
– Farkas encouraged “journalists and the world” not to dismiss the discredited, salacious Trump dossier published by BuzzFeed.

The Trump dossier is full of uncorroborated allegations. Evelyn Farkas acknowledged that, but at the same time she didn’t want people to dismiss it:

“Whether the information is partly true, all true, partly false or all false, the dossier, compiled by a former British intelligence officer as part of opposition political research on Donald Trump, cannot simply be dismissed.”

– Since Trump team had not disavowed the dossier, Farkas jumped to the conclusion that “[t]heir silence, for now, could indicate there is something to it.”

– She also wanted Trump “to explain the full extent of his ties with the Kremlin and influential Russians” based on the dossier.

– Farkas revealed that reporters had been using the fake dossier since last summer:

“Leaving aside the most salacious parts of the report on Trump, since the summer reporters have been writing about and investigating links between Trump’s staff, the Kremlin and Russia’s sharing of hacked American documents with WikiLeaks. They are seeking to find the truth on behalf of the rest of us.”

Yes, we want the TRUTH. If we want fiction, we rather read a spy novel.

It seems the discredited, fictional Trump dossier has become the springboard for liberals to do their fishing expedition against the Trump team. Where is the evidence? Insinuations, conjectures and wishful thinking are not evidence.

PARTS OF FARKAS’ OP-ED:

DOES PUTIN HAVE SOMETHING ON TRUMP? OBAMA SHOULD TELL US
BY EVELYN FARKAS ON 1/12/17 AT 4:43 PM

The mainstream press is correct to be cautious about the private sector opposition campaign research dossier posted on the internet by BuzzFeed.

However, journalists and the world should not dismiss it entirely of hand. There are some things in it that are plausible — the internal Kremlin debate about their intelligence operation, why Putin’s chief of staff was suddenly fired and other items that ring true to those of us who have read intelligence reports on Russia.

[…]

They [Trump’s staff people] have resorted to claiming that since the Russian operation has had no proven effect on the actual vote tally, we should move along, leaving aside the fact that the information from the hacks did contribute to the presidential campaign debates and political environment.

The U.S. intelligence officials—no jokers—decided that the matter was serious enough to warn Trump. Whether the information is partly true, all true, partly false or all false, the dossier, compiled by a former British intelligence officer as part of opposition political research on Donald Trump, cannot simply be dismissed. Indeed, it seems unlikely that is was entirely fabricated, because the intelligence community chose to forward it to Donald Trump and we haven’t heard a disavowal of it from them.

Their silence, for now, could indicate there is something to it.

Leaving aside the most salacious parts of the report on Trump, since the summer reporters have been writing about and investigating links between Trump’s staff, the Kremlin and Russia’s sharing of hacked American documents with WikiLeaks. They are seeking to find the truth on behalf of the rest of us.

So, I will repeat what I have written elsewhere: We need President Obama to share with the public the information the FBI has to date on this issue, and we need President-elect Trump to explain the full extent of his ties with the Kremlin and influential Russians.
