UPDATE: President Obama’s Own Defense Deputy Admits Obama White House Spied on Candidate/President-Elect Trump…

This is stunningly interesting and hopefully will be picked up by MSM and congressional investigators.

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.

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.

I was urging my former colleagues, and, and frankly speaking the people on the Hill [Democrat politicians], 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 [Obama] people who left; so it would be hidden away in the bureaucracy, um, 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].

But wait, it didn’t just stop there. It gets worse – or better, depending on your position.

With the help of MSNBC, simultaneous to her admission of first-hand specific knowledge of the administration spying on Mr. Trump, Ms. Evelyn Farkas outs herself as the key source for a New York Times report which discussed President Obama officials leaking classified information to media.

Considerable irony jumps to the forefront when you recognize, the New York Times tried to protect Evelyn Farkas as the source of their reporting by stating:

“More than a half-dozen current and former officials described various aspects of the effort to preserve and distribute the intelligence, and some said they were speaking to draw attention to the material and ensure proper investigation by Congress. All spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were discussing classified information, nearly all of which remains secret.” (link)

D’oh.

Whoopsie.

Looks like Devin Nunes and the House Intelligence Committee has a new person to bring in for testimony.   A positive development because at this rate the media leakers will out themselves without much need for investigation.

I wonder what the criminal penalties are for having access to intelligence and sharing it with Democrat politicians [“The Hill People”].

Question #1:

Who, specifically, are these “Hill People” you speak of Mrs. Farkas?

Watch again.  Longer version – key moment at 04:50 [prompted] Just hit play:

 

UPDATE: The plot thickens:

♦ 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.

At some point in the recent past Farkas was de-briefed (cut off) from access to the various kinds of compartmented information she had been given as a requirement of her prior job.  When that occurred she signed some papers in which she accepted the responsibility to protect the secrecy of that information. (link)

♦ Evelyn Farkas is also a senior fellow of the Atlantic Council –SEE HERE– the Atlantic Council is funded in part by the US State Department, NATO, the governments of Latvia and Lithuania, the Ukrainian World Congress, and the Ukrainian oligarch Victor Pinchuk. The Atlantic Council has been among the loudest voices calling for a new Cold War with Russia

And guess who else is a senior fellow of the Atlantic Council? Dimitri Alperovitch – the founder and CTO of CrowdStrike! Alperovitch is head honcho of the Atlantic Council’s “Cyber Statecraft Initiative”.

♦ CrowdStrike, aka Dimitri Alperovitch was the organization that initially claimed they had evidence the Russians were connected to the Trump organization.  A claim they have subsequently walked back – SEE HERE

Combine all of these data-points and you discover that Evelyn Farkas was essentially part of a disinformation campaign with Obama insiders spreading a fake DNC constructed story using false information.    However, in addition to pushing the false Trump Russian conspiracy narrative, Farkas has knowledge of the outcome of the original pushing of the narrative leading to actual surveillance of the Trump team.

This bolsters the information already presented by Devin Nunes that an entirely separate network of surveillance, unrelated to the Russian conspiracy story, was directly targeting the candidacy of Trump and the post-election surveillance of the President Elect Trump-transition team.

    All we have seen so far is innuendo, assertions and allegations. By now if there was actual evidence that Trump or any members of his staff ‘colluded’ with the ‘Russians’ we would have seen it. Its time for these folks to put up or shut up.

        STOP THE LEFT FALSE CLAIMS IMMEDIATELY (Grand Jury)
        Trump/Session need to give the Globalist/Elitist/Media/Democratic Party and Some in the Republican Party something to worry about…Start a GRAND JURY Investigation on Clinton Foundation, Clinton Emails, White House Leaks, Unmasked Names, declassification of unmasked names and highly classified information, Sedition, Treason, Corruption FBI, CIA, and NSA, Perjury Charges for James Clapper. There needs to be a separate Grand Jury for each of these charges.

        President Trump and Sessions has all the power of the United States Government and has the Rule of Law on their side. The left only has fake claims and everything else is deminimis. I believe President Trump and Sessions both see this and their only way to STOP the planting of fake news and stop the fake Impeachment process, is to prosecute everyone who broke the law. In fact, the only way to save the United States, it Constitution, Rule of Law for Justice is to Prosecute and Drain the Real Swamp.

        If the Swamp is not completely Drained Legally according to Justice nothing will ever change…the left will continue forever.

      I tend to agree that we would have already seen any evidence of collusion. But this is not the direct play of the left. They have set the bar of collusion so low that if they simply get a trump campaign official speaking jokingly to a Russian official that they hope that they release Hillary’s emails, they would claim that it is the smoking gun. They are hoping that Russian has and will provide that sort of proof which they will use to drive Trump into the ground and push to impeach or at least open up new lines to investigate.

    • Tommy Tunes says:

      We need to start asking this question …. Why didn’t Hillary Clintons DNC let the FBI Look at the Servers that the DNC said were Hacked by Russians ???????
      As of today, many months after the election, no one has put forth any evidence that Russia hacked anything related to the election whatsoever. None. The closest thing anyone has even resembling evidence is the word of CrowdStrike, the company hired by the DNC to investigate their servers, after someone released emails showing that Democratic party officials had been working behind the scenes to discredit and disable the Bernie Sanders campaign.

      There are several problems with the CrowdStrike angle however. The first problem, is that the DNC refused to allow the FBI to look at the servers themselves. The FBI instead just took their word for it. The second problem is that CrowdStrike has a SIGNIFICANT conflict of interest in this situation. Google is a major stakeholder in CrowdStrike, and Eric Schmidt the Executive Chairman of Alphabet (the parent company of Google) was working directly on the Clinton campaign effort. He was providing tech assistance, he drew up her campaign plan, and he was even photographed wearing a “staff” badge in an exclusive area during election night.

      This doesn’t pass the smell test, at all.

      Furthermore, the anti-Russian angle peddled by CrowdStrike was premised on the “fact” that the malware used in the attack was of Russian origin. As any security expert will tell you, once malware is used in the wild, anyone can pick it up and use it (including other state actors).

      To bolster their claim, CrowdStrike attempted to draw parallels to a supposed hack on Ukrainian artillery communications that used the same technique. That however, blew up in their face when both the Ukrainian military and the International Institute for Strategic Studies came forward to debunk their assessment.

      Then there is the fact that Wikileaks has been very clear about the fact that their source was NOT Russian.

      “We can say, we have said, repeatedly that over the last two months that our source is not the Russian government and it is not a state party,”

      The rabbit hole on this topic goes deeper, and clearly there is room for a lively debate, but it takes a willful act of intellectual dishonesty to treat it as a slam dunk case where the villain is clearly defined.

      Anyone who has studied crowd psychology knows that one of the most important principles of ideological contagion is repetition. It doesn’t matter if something is true or false. If you repeat something enough times people will start believing it. Once an idea becomes an accepted belief, it takes on characteristics of religious orthodoxy. To question becomes heresy.

    I have a question on something else not making sense here… Farkas left the administration Oct. of 2015 ( http://www.breitbart.com/national-security/2015/09/29/report-obamas-top-russia-official-resign/). How would she know about the spying on Trump? It supposedly didn’t start until early summer of 2016 and once she left her position, her security clearance should have been suspended and she should no longer have had access to federal information. So… was the spying earlier? Did security fail in removing her access and suspending her clearance? Or is she only a channel for leaking with second-hand (not first-hand like she insinuates) knowledge?

      A little of both, I think.

      The surveillance has probably been going on for much longer than we expect, and she has first-hand knowledge of at least the portion that overlapped her stay in the 0bama administration.

      But she also is rather self-aggrandizing – her line of “work” benefits from a lot of self-promotion. She probably still receives some leaks from former colleagues in government, but it also suits her needs to make herself appear much better connected than what may be the reality.

      Just because the rules say she shouldn’t have security clearance doesn’t mean she DIDN’T still have security clearance.

Of course, this is just speculation, but this is yet another question to add to the long list of questions to ask her once she’s under oath!

      Also, if these facilities are as highly secured as some claim, her face and ID should be on record as having visited the location after her access ceased (if that is, indeed, what she did). If so, COOKED GOOSE!

    As has been mentioned this interview was conducted almost a month ago. In fact as the ticker says “Ben Carson is expected to be confirmed as Housing Secretary later today”, which means we know for a fact that this interview is from the morning of March 2nd.

    So, was this really ‘missed’ by Sundance, 4chan, Reddit’s ‘The Donald’ (who now says this is “YUGGEE!!”) and countless other bloggers, twitter folk et al for almost 4 weeks? Apparently yes, but not by all.

    As has been pointed out, at least one blog noted this woman going around and apparently repeating this talking point.

    http://turcopolier.typepad.com/sic_semper_tyrannis/2017/03/is-evelyn-farkas-a-felon.html

    So this interview was broadcast nationally and subsequently reported on by at least one blogger, but nobody else saw the importance for almost a month?

    Some have suggested that this interview was missing from the original broadcast, but we can reject that theory because of the coverage on Sic Semper Tyrannis’ blog and one of the comments on the YouTube video mentioned recording it off air as well. It was indeed broadcast nationwide to almost universal indifference. Until now.

    I don’t doubt that what this woman is saying seems to be a confirmation that President Trump was indeed wiretapped to the nth degree, but it still seems odd that something so significant remained ‘hidden’ for 26 days. I suppose it just goes to show how few people watch or pay attention to MSNBC!

      I think you can also attribute it to simple information overload!!! That’s why it takes tons of people to keep up with everything. No matter why it was missed initially, though, the most important point is that people are seeing it now.

      HOWEVER, what other clues are lurking in other news clips out there? Thank God for the Internet!

    Is anybody really committed to getting at the truth? I wonder. No, I think nothing will come of any of this, and in there years as Trump runs for re-election we’ll still be rehashing all of this in the same fevered posts about who did what when and who deserves to be fired or prosecuted and what secret “smoking gun” information will FINALLY settle everything.

    Not going to happen. The media will make sure of it.

    The only answer as I see it is the complete delegitimization — the credibility annihilation — of the media as THE HIGHEST PRIORITY of this administration. For one, we need to end these stupid farcical daily press briefings with Sean Spicer colluding in his own humiliating inquisition by a presumably legitimate journalistic profession and instead use the hearing time to build and prosecute the case for the media’s disgrace and marginalization.

    Trump needs to set up his own information network that directly challenges the media. We need to bring in conservative journalists, social media people, college journalists, CSPAN and displace these sick tools of the MSM. We need to directly confront them on their own programs with cheerful but adversarial challenges to EVERY THING THEY SAY.

    Russia Threatens To Leak Things Obama Asked Moscow To “Keep Secret”

    “Asked about the current state of U.S.-Russia relations, Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Maria Zakharova gave a long winded answer that can be read below. In her answer, Zakharova suggested Russia may “publish leaks” about “secrets” the Obama administration asked the Russian government to keep private. The shocking statement can be found in the second to last paragraph of Zakharova’s answer highlighted in both bold and italic.

    “You could just imagine the headlines this would have made if this was about a Trump administration official.

    “But because it is about Barack Obama, arguably one of the worst presidents in US history, the liberal mainstream media ignores this completely.”

    “Yes, I do” stand by the initial claim, Napolitano stated. “And the sources stand by it.”

    “Sources have told me that the British foreign surveillance service, the Government Communications Headquarters, known as GCHQ, most likely provided Obama with transcripts of Trump’s calls.”

    Fox anchor Shepard Smith later refuted the judge’s claim.

    IMHO, the WhiteHouse has the evidence to prove that POTUS and his staff were illegally unmasked and potentially illegally surveilled (definitely surveilled, just maybe “legally” by using O-zero era loopholes).

    Nunes has the same evidence, or some of it.

    AG Sessions may be working on investigations/grand juries based on the evidence the WH has.

    I realize it takes time for the AG to charge people with crimes, and you can’t reveal your hand too soon or you risk your case being corrupted.

    I believe the House/Senate IC Committee investigations are just BS, no one ever faces consequences and not much is revealed. It’s all kabuki theater.

    So the Sessions actions are what’s important, and that info won’t be public for a long time, so I’m stuck in limbo still waiting and hating, and the fakemedia is still lying and o-zero/canklebots are still spying.

    “Over the last decade, the assumption of civil liberty and privacy protections for Americans incidentally intercepted by the NSA overseas has been eroded in the name of national security.

    “Today, the power to unmask an American’s name inside an NSA intercept — once considered a rare event in the intelligence and civil liberty communities — now resides with about 20 different officials inside the NSA alone. The FBI also has the ability to unmask Americans’ names to other intelligence professionals and policymakers.”
