Bombshell: Former Obama official admits spying on Trump team, rush to spread intelligence

Obama administration rushed to spread disinformation

(INTELLIHUB) — Barack Obama’s former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense Evelyn Farkas has admitted that the Obama administration spied on the Trump team and then rushed to spread the intelligence to colleagues on the Hill while simultaneously covering up where it came from.

The stunning admission, revealed during an appearance on MSNBC, appears to confirm that the Obama administration did indeed conduct surveillance on Trump, a fact many already believe after reports in the New York Times that cited the wiretapping.

As the Conservative Treehouse reported,  “It would appear Ms. Farkas was so caught up in the discussion, she didn’t quite realize the significant admissions she was making about the Obama administration spying on Donald Trump’s team and generating classified intelligence for Ms. Farkas (and others) to spread to Capitol Hill politicians. MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski recognized the ‘oh-snap’ admission and tried to play it off,… but by then it was too late.”

“Sometimes when a person is deep inside an echo-chamber of like-minded ideologues, they  might not realize what they’re saying is rather revealing to those on the outside. That’s the set up for former Obama administration official Evelyn Farkas (Deputy Asst. Secretary of Defense) appearing on MSNBC and admitting first hand knowledge the Obama administration spied on candidate and president-elect Donald Trump’s transition team to gather “intelligence” for political use.”

“Evelyn Farkas has stated freely on TV that she and a group of associates from the Obama Administration went to congressional staffers who did not have access to these COMINT products and urged them to seek to gain access to them.”

“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 admitted.

“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,” she continued.

“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 trying to also help get information to the Hill.”

From this admission as well as other correlating reports, it is safe to say at this point that Farkas and others in the Obama administration were part of a large-scale disinformation campaign that included spreading the fake Russian narrative to Democrats in various positions within the government.

It is also important to note that Farkas is now a member of the globalist Atlantic Council. The group has repeatedly attempted to start a new Cold War with Russia and as Paul Watson noted, “is funded by the governments of Latvia and Lithuania, the Ukrainian World Congress, and the Ukrainian oligarch Victor Pinchuk.”
