The following article from the conservative tree house reminded me of when I watched the Evelyn Farkas interview back in March:
It is extremely important to put this interview in context. On March 21, 2017 Devin Nunes received a phone which caused him to take immediate action. He switched cars and did not tell his team where he was headed. He was on his way to the White House where an unnamed source took him into one of the most secure rooms in the world and showed Nunes information so secret that it could only be observed in that location.
Devin Nunes holds a press conference on March 22, 2017 saying that he saw evidence that there was surveillance of the Trump transition team and possibly Donald Trump himself. He then wen to the White House to brief Donald Trump. No one really knows what Nunes saw in that room. No one knows what he told Trump.
On March 27, 2017 Evelyn Farkas gave this stunning interview:
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 the Hill.” [ie. Democrat politicians] (link)
At the time I wondered why this interview was not recognized as a bombshell. I now believe a lot of people knew the significance of this. However, unlike Democrats on the hills, Republicans did not discuss this with the press. Instead, they acted.
We know that Nunes was running an investigation and he wasn’t informing his Democratic colleagues. He was justified in doing that because Farkas had publicly admitted that Democrats on the hill were active members of the conspiracy. We know that the OIG had been running an investigation since January 2017. There are hints of other, more secret, investigations. On May 16, 2017 President Trump interviewed Robert Mueller. Since Mueller was not eligible to be Director of the FBI, it was probably about something else. On May 17, 2017, Mueller was appointed special counsel to oversee the investigation into ties between Trump’s campaign and Russian officials.
Following is a link to the letter appointing Mueller:
Read this letter carefully. Perhaps the main stream media and Democrats on the hill totally missed the significance of this appointment. It is vital to realize that this was AFTER Nunes had viewed that information in the White House and it was AFTER Farkas stupidly admitted that there was a conspiracy and incredibly she implied that President Obama was in on it.
Was Mueller there to investigate links between the Trump campaign and Russia? Probably not, because by this time everyone knew there was no collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. If he wasn’t investigating this, what would be the point? Mueller would be able to investigate the potentially illegal surveillance of the Trump transition team and the coordinated leaks of classified information by Democrats on the hill. He could even employ some of the top suspects and allow them to incriminate themselves.
What if everyone, and I do mean everyone, has had this all wrong from day one. We may soon know.
