As we’re just starting to dig into the transcripts that were released on Thursday, more critical details are coming to light and the farce against President Trump is being exposed.
Back in 2017, former President Barack Obama’s defense official Evelyn Farkas made an appearance on MSNBC and discussed how she was worried that the “evidence” of Russian collusion would disappear once Trump took office.
Farkas said, “I had a fear that somehow that information would disappear with the senior people who left so that it would be hidden away in the bureaucracy, that the Trump folks, if they found out how we knew what we knew..about the Trump staff dealing with Russians that they would try to compromise those sources and methods. That’s why you have the leaking. People are worried.”
Now that we have the actual transcript of Farkas’ interview with Congress, we know that this was a lie.
Gowdy: “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. Well, how would you know what the U.S. government knew at that point? You didn’t work for it, did you?”
Farkas: “I didn’t.”
Gowdy: “Then how did you know?”
Farkas: “I didn’t know anything.”
Gowdy: “Did you have information connecting the Trump campaign to the hack of the DNC?” Gowdy asked.
Gowdy: “So when you say, ‘We knew,’ the reality is you knew nothing.”
Gowdy didn’t ease up off of her, he continued,
Gowdy: “So when you say ‘knew,’ what you really meant was felt?”
Gowdy: “You didn’t know anything?”
Farkas: “That’s correct.”
We all knew this was a lie, but now we have documented proof that she was lying, just like everyone else when they claimed to have evidence of collusion between Trump and Russia.
