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.
“I had a fear that somehow that information would disappear with the senior [Obama administration] people who left…[that] it would be hidden away in the bureaucracy,” Farkas said.

“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.
“You didn’t know anything?” Gowdy continued.
“That’s correct,” Farkas responded.
Farkas, a Democrat, is currently running for Congress in New York’s 17th district.

This new evidence underscores the foundation of falsehoods beneath the entire Russiagate narrative:
- FBI mislead the FISA court to obtain warrants
- Declassified internal documents showed that the FBI didn’t believe the Steele Dossier to be valid, yet they leaked it to the press anyway
- Farkas is show to have lied to MSNBC to help catapult the propaganda
Sure, none of that changes that Trump is a bad president. But it destroys the “Russian collusion” lie.
His body recovered from his torment and became hale,
but the shadow of his pain was in his heart;
and he lived to wield his sword with left hand
more deadly than his right had been.

and ‘sting’ unpopular people. Making REAL crime-fighting much harder, in the years to come.
But hey, as long as the target was someone YOU don’t like, you are fine with being misled, or watching public officials deliberately mislead the public.

As life long GOP voters Comey, based on nothing new, blabs to the press to create maximum anti-Hillary damage. FBI isn’t used to such meddling. Mueller refused to interview the Trump brats, even though they are grown up idiots and could be tripped up with little effort and he did not release the results near the election to salvage his GOP derriere friends.

The real collusion was Obama with Comey and Mueller to wiretap Trump’s campaign with zero evidence. Not too different from what Nixon did. Anyone with half a brain would have realized that the whole Russian collusion thing was a false narrative meant to support Shillary. I am surprised it took the rethugs so long.

1) There were no consequences for lying to Congress, so now this grifting liar is running for Congress
2) Russiagate was a hoax perpetrated by the Obama-Biden-Hillary cabal and their pressitute lapdogs
3) Pressitute lap dogs are purveyors of Fake News
4) Ergo, the Obama-Biden-Hillary cabal are liars who will do/say ANYTHING…
Now, we all know that 1-4 apply equally to Trump and the GOP, BUT this is all red meat for the Trump campaign, added red meat… to Biden’s dementia, record, and personal corruption.

People are seemingly amazed at how ready Bernie was to hew to that catechism, and now we see more evidence of why he was afraid to cross them on that. They will lie and cheat to smear you if you become their enemy. The Third Wayers accused Bernie of being a latent sexual predator, a grifter, with his expensive jacket, taking money from old unemployed people (who were actually just retired), married to a scam artist, and an asset of Russia!.
They’d have tried to do to Jane Sanders what they did to Mike Flynn had Bernie not danced enthusiastically to their tune. Hillary was delightful, and Russia! tried to steal the election from Her.

It just morphed into the largest shit show on earth because of the MSM.
This does fall directly at the feet of the DNC and the Clintons.
