Evelyn Farkas, Obama Official Who Falsely Claimed Knowledge Of Russia Collusion on MSNBC, Running For Congress in NY

Said on MSNBC “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” but admitted in recently released testimony “I didn’t know anything.”

Evelyn Farkas was the Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense under Obama. In March of 2017, she appeared on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, and lied about the incoming Trump staff’s “dealing with Russians.”

Shortly after that, she testified before Congress and admitted to then Congressman Trey Gowdy that she didn’t know anything.

Sean Davis reports at The Federalist:

Obama Defense Official Evelyn Farkas Admitted She Lied On MSNBC About Having Evidence Of Collusion

Former Obama administration defense official Evelyn Farkas testified under oath that she lied during an MSNBC interview when she claimed to have evidence of alleged collusion, a newly declassified congressional transcript of her testimony shows. Farkas testified before the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence on June 26, 2017, as part of the committee’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election between Donald Trump and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Lawmakers keyed in on an appearance Farkas made on MSNBC on March 2, 2017, in which she urged intelligence community bureaucrats to disseminate within the government and potentially even leak to media any incriminating information they had about Trump or his aides.

This is what Farkas said on Morning Joe, via FOX News:

“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,” she said. “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.”

See the clip of her appearance below:

Here is the testimony Farkas gave a few months later, again via The Federalist:

“Why don’t we go back to that sentence that I just asked you about. It says ‘the Trump folks, if they found out how we knew what we knew about their staff dealing with Russians,” Gowdy said. “Well, how would you know what the U.S. government knew at that point? You didn’t work for it, did you?”

“I didn’t,” said Farkas, a former mid-level Russia analyst who left the federal government in 2015.

“Then how did you know?” Gowdy responded.

“I didn’t know anything,” Farkas said.

“Did you have information connecting the Trump campaign to the hack of the DNC?” Gowdy asked.

“No,” Farkas admitted.

“So when you say, ‘We knew,’ the reality is you knew nothing,” Gowdy asked later during the deposition.

“Correct,” Farkas responded.

Gowdy didn’t stop there.

“So when you say ‘knew,’ what you really meant was felt?” he asked.

“Correct,” Farkas answered.

This woman is now running for Congress in New York. See the tweet below and note how she says “I sounded the alarm about Russian election interference & stood up to Trump’s corruption.”

Maybe this is one of the reasons Adam Schiff didn’t want these transcripts to be made public.

Tucker Carlson did a segment on Farkas that’s worth watching:

Not surprising! NY Dist. 17 comprises the suburb counties north of NY City area, inclusive of Hillary’s neighborhoods. Who will notice one more dysfunctional legislator in the cesspool originating from this part of the state.

Honestly, who in the world would vote for a Dr. Fart Ass?

Wow.

An entire party of dirtbags, using every crooked trick they know to dig up something on DJT, and all they find is bupkis.

All they’ve demonstrated is that Trump is some kind of saint.

A bit surprising, but we have to go with the evidence.

Do the Farkel.

Farkas admitted to lying to the media in a closed door session that the dems wanted to remain buried while Corey Lewandowski admitted to the same thing in an open hearing in September of 2019.
His quote
“I have no obligation to be honest with the media because they are just as dishonest as anybody else,”
Corey also added in this one,
The committee counsel asking Lewandowski questions catches him in lies regarding public statements he made about his role in the Mueller investigation. Lewandowski replies by saying, sarcastically, “No one in Congress has ever lied to the public.”
I recall watching this hearing live, it was often times theatre of the absurd vs an actual hearing, then again nearly all the hearings regarding this matter were absurd.

None of this, or any other disclosures that show the perfidy these bastards have been engaged in ever since Trump came down the escalator in 2015 will move the needle with the foaming at the mouth left wing Trump haters. They will close their eyes, put their hands over their ears, and scream, “ORANGE MAN BAD! ORANGE MAN BAD!”

We may well be headed for a bloody civil war. Be prepared.

“So when you say, ‘We knew,’ the reality is you knew nothing,” Gowdy asked later during the deposition.

“Correct,” Farkas responded.

Gowdy didn’t stop there.

“So when you say ‘knew,’ what you really meant was felt?” he asked.

“Correct,” Farkas answered.

Bullshit…Gowdy gave her an out !

He correctly should have said, “So when you say “knew”, what you really meant was “lied”…

Now that would be correct…

Parents escaped from communism supposedly.
Makes me wonder if they really escaped or were just plants for adding more communism to the dem party.

susan rice wrote that email to herself explaining obama said thisgs were to be done “by the book.” Now he releases a phone call (through his msm propagandists) about the “rule of law regarding General Flynn’s case. These are tactics straight out of junior high school. It’s going to get a lot worse for the obama gang.

Shoot the bitch!

Lying to support the Kenyan is a resume enhancement for a Dem/Prog.

As far as the New York electorate, look at the people they elect: Hildebeast, Carlos Danger, UpChuck Schumer, AOC, the list of perverts goes on.

Of course Monday morning we can expect Joe and Mica to use the entire air time of “Morning Joe” angrily taking Clapper, Brennan, Rice, McCabe, Rhodes and Farkas to task for lying to them on air over the last three years.

When will Haynes, Maddow, Matthews, Lemon and the rest of the MSNBC, CNN trolls be issuing a rebuke for being used repeatedly by the Obama RICO Team over the last four years as they gleefully lied to the American public?

Lying convincingly is a feature for a politician, not a bug.

It’s a solid Dem seat, so solid that in 2016 and 2018 the Reps couldn’t even find someone willing to mount a token candidacy against Nita Lowey. Now Lowey is retiring, so Farkas’s only challenge is winning the Dem primary. Dem primary voters are unlikely to see this, since none of her rivals would be likely to bring it up. And if they did see it they’d probably conclude that she told the truth on TV and lied to Congress, and they’d approve of that.
