Evelyn Farkas, deputy assistant secretary of defense under Obama, made the disclosure March 2 while on the air with MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski.
“I was urging my former colleagues 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,” Farkas, who is now a senior fellow at the Atlantic Council, said.
“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 … 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.”
There are still many unanswered questions over whether communications were improperly gathered during the transition and before.
There is also the issue on how widely such information was disseminated. Farkas described a rush to spread the material before Trump took office.
Barack Obama had been given one job: Collect all the information he could and spread it as far as possible before he left office.
…and Hillary called Trump supporters deplorable? This is treason. As alwaus, the left is relying on the false narrative because they cannot won on substance.
