This is pretty damning. And it’s coming from her own mouth.
This clip of MSNBC’s Morning Joe is making the rounds. It features former Obama Admin. Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense Evelyn Farkas point-blank telling Mika Brzezinski that she told White House staffers to get as much information as they could about then-candidate and then-President Elect Donald Trump – including any damaging information connection Trump to Russia.
The way she talks about it, it’s like she either didn’t realize what she was admitting to or that she simply didn’t think it was that big of a deal. After all, everyone hates Donald Trump. So, why should spying on him be that much of a problem?
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].
Oh, Democrats. You’re so used to the media covering your backsides that you forget how many other people are paying attention.
Is this the infamous “wiretapping” that Trump referred to in that tweet some weeks back? Possibly. I wouldn’t put it past Obama’s minions to do something like that on their way out of the White House. It stinks to high heaven of Democrat corruption (or, as it’s more colloquially known, “business as usual”).
Will anything come of it? Don’t know. But it’s going to be interesting from here on out. Stay tuned.
