Uh-oh! This former Deputy of Defense slipped up when talking to MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski… Barry’s going to be REALLY upset.
Dr. Evelyn Farkas, Deputy Asst. Secretary of Defense under the Obama Administration, dropped a few key statements about the spying on the Trump team.
Perhaps Dr. Farkas was comfortable chatting with her fellow Democrat colleagues at the Media (D) and didn’t realize how free she was with the information.
Check it out:
From the video:
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 people who left; so it would be hidden away in the bureaucracy, 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].
BRZEZINSKI: A lot going on today.
FARKAS: That’s why you have the leaking.
Who were these ‘People on the Hill’ that Farkas was speaking of?
RINOS? Remember it was John McCain that had the infamous ‘Golden Showers’ dossier and passed it on to the Feds.
Who knows? Well, Farkas knows.
And maybe she should be questioned on that.
She was telling the ‘Hill People’ (not Lothar and his ilk) but the — presumably Democrat — politicians that they should grab onto any intel that they could get their hands on.
This was when the Obama Administration allowed the info-sharing of classified material between 16 agencies to occur before redacting names, etc.
The names of American citizens are to be redacted from intelligence gathered through warrants investigating foreign agents. This was obviously not the case with General Flynn.
The fact that he was speaking to Russians after being named part of President Trump’s cabinet is no scandal, it was the content of the conversations that was. The content was leaked, and that is problematic.
Farkas admits that the Obama administration was pushing to preserve intelligence on so-called ‘Russian Hacking’.
Check out this tidbit from the New York Times on March 1:
In the Obama administration’s last days, some White House officials scrambled to spread information about Russian efforts to undermine the presidential election — and about possible contacts between associates of President-elect Donald J. Trump and Russians — across the government. Former American officials say they had two aims: to ensure that such meddling isn’t duplicated in future American or European elections, and to leave a clear trail of intelligence for government investigators.
American allies, including the British and the Dutch, had provided information describing meetings in European cities between Russian officials — and others close to Russia’s president, Vladimir V. Putin — and associates of President-elect Trump, according to three former American officials who requested anonymity in discussing classified intelligence.
Interestingly, Dr. Farkas is also a Senior Fellow at the Atlantic Council. This council is funded in part by the State Department, NATO, the foreign governments of Latvia and Lithuania, the Ukranian World Congress, and has been a loud voice calling for a new Cold War with Russia.
Another Senior Fellow of the Atlantic Council is Dimitri Alperovitch, who is also the founder of CrowdStrike, which had boldly claimed that they had ‘evidence’ of a Trump-Russia connection. They have since ‘walked back’ those claims.
CrowdStrike has retracted statements it used to buttress claims of Russian hacking https://t.co/8AZOvoQl0K

The Democrats and the Media (D) are now on a witch-hunt to discredit Devin Nunes as ‘Dangerous’ because he can’t confirm the bias that Trump was colluding with Russia.
Now that Dr. Farkas has made these statements, it looks like Nunes and the House Intelligence Committee need to question her.
All this to say, that it looks like Dr. Farkas really had the job of Deputy Assistant Director of Disseminating ‘Fake News’.
