Who would have thunk? During an interview on MSNBC, Dr. Evelyn Farkas, former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense literally admitted that the Obama administration was using the intelligence services to spy on the Trump campaign:
The transcript speaks for itself:
I was urging my former colleagues, and, and frankly speaking the people on the Hill [Democrat politicians], 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 Trump staff, dealing with Russians – that they would try to compromise those sources and methods; meaning we 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 also trying to help get information to [Democrat politicians
It will be interesting to see how the liberal left handles this. Odds are they will focus on the evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia and ignore the massive abuse of power by the Obama administration. But the problem is that if there is so much material, why haven’t they been able to produce a shred of evidence? The obvious answer is they don’t have such evidence or we would all know about it.
We now know why former Obama intelligence officials were publicly stating there was no evidence of collusion. They knew that the real story was the surveillance itself and they were trying to head off an investigation into that. Thanks to the brilliant Ms. Farkas, we do have a smoking gun, just not the one they wanted or expected.
Incredibly she not only admits that intelligence was being gathered, she admits it was done deliberately, she admits it involved classified information and it was being preserved and distributed to Democratic politicians. It was also being deliberately withheld from Republicans. It does not get any worse than this.
The main stream media will try to down play this but Fox is about to go nuclear. This story is so juicy and so significant that within hours at least some in the main stream media will jump on the bandwagon. While they are liberal and they hate Trump they simply cannot ignore a story this explosive. It is hard to imagine someone supposedly so smart being so incredibly stupid. But then, liberals are not necessarily known for common sense and logic.
