How many people have turned against Barack Obama?
It seems like every week, someone else is stepping up and exposing our former president’s many questionable actions. Some of these are outright crimes.
It’s even more shocking when a former member of Obama’s staff does the exposing.
Welcome in former Obama Deputy Asst. Secretary of Defense Evelyn Farkas, who appeared on MSNBC and basically just sold her one-time boss up the river. Maybe she wasn’t aware she was doing it, but it happened regardless.
She admitted to having first-hand-knowledge that the Obama administration spied on candidate and then president-elect Donald Trump. The excuse? To gather “intelligence” for political use.
This falls in line with the NSA’s previous claim that they’d found the “smoking gun” pertaining to Trump’s wiretapping claims.
Here are Farkas’s exact words:
“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].”
Maybe we shouldn’t be surprised that both The Supreme Court AND Congress are investigating Obama for a variety of reasons. Maybe if more of his former staffers speak up, the wheels will turn faster…
