The White House is now asking Congress to dig deeper into whether the surveillance of Trump associates were improperly picked up and disseminated, after ex-Obama official, Evelyn Farkas (and Hillary campaign advisor) suggested her former colleagues tried to gather such material, Fox News reports.
Fox News reports:
White House Counsel Don McGahn specifically cited Evelyn Farkas’ comments in a letter to the leaders of the House Intelligence Committee, as he invited lawmakers to view documents that apparently show surveillance of Trump associates during the transition.
McGahn moved to flip the script in his letter to Nunes and Schiff, pointing to Farkas’ comments as an indication of “possible inappropriate accumulation or dissemination of classified information.”
Farkas parted ways with the White House in 2015 and defended herself on Twitter, saying she didn’t personally “give anybody anything except advice” on Russia information and wanted Congress to ask for facts.
But even if Farkas was not personally involved with any of the collection, McGahn asked the House committee to look at how such intelligence was gathered.
Evelyn Farkas is trying to do damage control now that the wagons are circling. She keeps talking, and the more she talks, the more she contradicts herself.
The Democrats will continue to push the Trump-Russia hoax to distract from the real crimes being committed with the Obamagate scandal which of course was the plan all along.
