OBAMA STAFFER ADMITS: She’s the SOURCE of the Russian Lie and Spied on Trump
It doesn’t get much clearer than this. An Obama’s former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Russia/Ukraine/Eurasia, Evelyn Farkas essentially admits that she’s the source of the Russian lie.
Further, she confirms that Obama spied on Trump.
Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) recently revealed former that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and six of her aides all retained access to top secret and classified information once they left their government posts in 2013.
In the interview below, Evelyn Farkas admits what the administration was doing. You should note how Mika Brzenzinski reacts, almost as if she wants to have the woman retract the statement.
After this revelation, how could the Trump administration not call for a special prosecutor to look into this amazing discovery?
“If they found out how we knew what we knew about their, the staff, the Trump staff’s dealing with Russians, that they would try to compromise those sources and methods, meaning we would no longer have access to that intelligence,” Farkas told MSNBC. “So I became very worried, because not enough was coming out into the open.”
Without the authority to do so, Farkas pushed Capitol Hill to ask for any intelligence gathered on Trump advisers.
“I was getting the feeling that the people on the Hill weren’t briefed up, mainly because they weren’t bringing it up in conversations with me
, and they were not concerned with what the Russians had done. I could tell that there was something there because all I had to do was look at the faces of Obama people when the topic came up, and they wouldn’t talk about it so it was clear that it was super sensitive.”
Yes, classified information is sensitive.
What Farkas revealed should have the heads of many former Obama administration people rolling. The media should be scrambling on the Hill to find out who was involved, and that is a long list.
Who doubts that the former secretary of state directed her staffers to retain this access in preparation for her second failed presidential run? Three years prior to the election, Clinton was aware the American people wouldn’t vote for her. So she decided to stack the political deck in her favor.
Ed Henry of Fox News uncovered more details.
“We’re learning from Grassley that [Hillary] and six staffers in 2013 retained clearances where they still had access to top secret and classified information. Why? They were titled ‘research assistants.’ So the assumption on Capitol Hill is it was because she was writing her memoirs and saying, ‘Look, I still need access to this information in order to go through what happened in Syria, what happened with Russia.’ But obviously think back to what James Comey said in how Hillary Clinton handled classified information.”
This isn’t something Clinton can just wipe clean with a cloth.
Neither she nor her staff had the right to compromise U.S. security or abuse the trust of the American people.
Henry referenced FBI Director James Comey’s July 2016 statement calling Clinton “extremely careless” in how she handled classified information. This may have been, in part, what he referred to.
“[Grassley] obviously believes something needs to be done about this…You got Rex Tillerson, so if you have these documents on why she retained these clearances, and for example does she still have a clearance today?”
The Trump administration’s implementation of his campaign promise to drain the D.C. swamp couldn’t come soon enough.
