Evelyn Farkas, Obama’s Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense, confirms the following.
1. The Obama administration leaked classified material to congress and the press to undermine the incoming Trump administration.
2. The Trump administration was the target of surveillance collected and distributed.
3. The Obama administration wanted to hide their sources and methods from “President” Trump, undermining the Chain of Command, a seditious act.
4. The Obama administration was worried that not enough intelligence was leaking.
5. “That’s why you have the [illegal] leaking”.
I generally don’t get into the outlandish claims like “Obama was born in Kenya”, “Bush did 9/11”, and even true ones such as “B. Clinton lied about having sex with Lewinsky (who cares).”
But this one of “‘Trump’ ‘may’ ‘possibly’ have ‘links’ with ‘Russians'” just stopped being politics and became a criminal matter.
I guess everyone needs to be reminded that the President is the head of the executive branch and that all members of the defense department, the intelligence community, and so forth, report to him.
That remains true even if it were true that Russia leaked the DNC emails. Trump won with voters. He is the President.
Obama fired both General Stanley McChrystal and General David Petraeus for this very same offense. McChrystal disrespected the chain of command and Petraeus illegally leaked intelligence. There is nothing confusing about this offense.
At the very least, if no one else, Evelyn Farkas needs to go to prison for confirming what she confirmed about her actions.
George W. Bush didn’t undermine Obama when he became President.
“I don’t think it’s good for the country to have a former president undermine a current president; I think it’s bad for the presidency for that matter,” Bush said.
“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 the Hill [Democrat politicians].”
“That’s why you have the leaking.”
