President Trump has been saying for a while that the Obama administration spied on him while he was on the campaign trail.
The liberal mainstream media berated his “accusation” for having no proof on the matter.
But new information is unfolding that just might be Trump’s proof, because a top Obama official admitted to collecting intelligence on Trump.
“Evelyn Farkas, a former top Obama administration official, has denied that she had access to inside information when she made remarks as a contributor to MSNBC last month that seemed to acknowledge efforts by members of the Obama administration to collect intelligence on Donald Trump and members of his 2016 presidential campaign.
However, the news media has largely failed to note that on February 16, about two weeks prior to her statements on MSNBC, Farkas revealed in an interview that she was ‘getting winks and hints from inside that there was something really wrong here’ – referring to Trump officials’ alleged ties to Russia.
She stated that she was ‘first made aware of all this stuff’ during the summer.
On March 2, Farkas stated on MSNBC that she told former Obama administration colleagues to collect intelligence on Trump and campaign officials.
‘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,” stated Farkas.
‘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.’”
But once her comments were exposed, she backpedaled and denied she had made those comments in the first place.
“She told the Daily Caller last week that she had no access to any intelligence. ‘I had no intelligence whatsoever, I wasn’t in government anymore and didn’t have access to any,’ she said.
Speaking to the Washington Post, Farkas denied being a source of any leaks.
The Post reported:
Farkas, in an interview with The Post, said she ‘didn’t give anybody anything except advice,’ was not a source for any stories and had nothing to leak.
Noting that she left government in October 2015, she said, ‘I was just watching like anybody else, like a regular spectator” as initial reports of Russia contacts began to surface after the election.
However, on February 16, Farkas told Ezra Klein at Vox.com that she was ‘getting winks and hints from inside’ about alleged Russia ties.
Farkas was asked by Klein about her ‘level of alarm after the resignation of Michael Flynn,’ who stepped down in February as Trump’s national security adviser.”
Farkas even admitted she didn’t think Flynn would last a whole year:
“It’s lower than it’s been since the summer, when I was first made aware of all this stuff. I’m like; finally, everybody else sees it! Seriously.
The reason I was so upset last summer was that I was getting winks and hints from inside that there was something really wrong here. I was agitated because I knew the Clinton campaign and the world didn’t know.
But I didn’t think it would happen this fast. I didn’t think Flynn would survive a year, but I thought it would be most of the year.”
Maybe Farkas is the answer President Trump needs to finally expose the former President’s cruel and malicious intent towards him.
