Evelyn Farkas, former deputy assistant secretary of defense under Obama, confirmed DeepState spying on President Trump, surveillance of Trump, the unmasking intelligence leaks, and even the politicizing and leaking that collected information to the Obama-friendly D.C. contacts and Democrat operatives. While being interviewed by MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski, Farkas said:
“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.”
“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 colleges and I knew they were trying to also help get information to the Hill....That's why you have the leaking. People are worried."
