Transcripts Show Obama Officials Knew There Was No Russia Collusion

OK, place your bets on the first Democrat to proclaim this is all a distraction from Bat Soup Virus? Democrats love trotting out the distraction meme when they know they are in trouble

Ex-Obama official, in released transcript, admits she didn’t know about Trump-Russia collusion despite prior claims

Evelyn Farkas, a former Obama administration official who previously encouraged congressional staffers to gather evidence of alleged collusion between President Trump’s 2016 campaign and Russia and said she “knew” there was additional such information out there, admitted she did not know such information existed in a 2017 interview with congressional investigators.

Transcripts from dozens of such interviews were released Thursday by the House Intelligence Committee.

Farkas, who previously served as the deputy assistant secretary of Defense for Russia/Ukraine/Eurasia, said on MSNBC in 2017 that she “was urging my former colleagues, and, frankly speaking, the people on the Hill… 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 people that left. So it would be hidden away in the bureaucracy.”

She continued to say she was concerned “the Trump folks, if they found out how we knew what we knew about their, the staff, the Trump staff’s dealing with Russians, that they would try to compromise those sources and methods, meaning we would 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.

Yeah, but

But the tranche of transcripts from 2017-2018 House Intelligence Committee interviews showed that several top Obama officials, including Farkas, former Attorney General Loretta Lynch, former Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes and former National Security Adviser Susan Rice all said they had or knew of no hard evidence of Trump-Russia collusion.

Farkas’ interview with the committee took place just a couple of months after her comments on MSNBC.

So, when they were under oath they said that this whole collusion thing was a bunch of mule fritters, unlike when they were talking to friendly media outlets. Surprise?

Of course, most of the media outlets aren’t covering the release of the transcripts and what they really show, except in a few cases where they are spinning themselves to cover for Adam Schiff and the other unhinged Democrats. Mostly, though, no coverage. CNN’s front page at 650am has zero stories on the transcripts after being balls to the wall on collusion. Nor at ABC News, CBS News, or NBC News. But, remember, they’re credentialed! They have no bias! Of course, President Trump will drag them kicking and screaming into covering it, as he always does, since he promises “more to come“.

My money is on Nancy Pelosi being the first to trot out “distraction.”

    I’m watching Republicans trying like hell to get the truth out of the DOJ, FBI and CIA and all they get is bullshit. Why aren’t the Democrats just as interested in getting to the truth behind DOJ malfeasance? Is this not their country also? Is this not also the “justice” system they live under? Truth is not a partisan issue and neither is corruption nor conspiracy. Neither Republicans nor Democrats can operate under a system of arbitrary laws and application of laws based on political affiliation.

    The deep state has spent three years trying without success to pin SOMETHING on Trump when all the time it was the Obama people who were doing it.

    A comfortability with blatant dishonesty is required to play this game.

    The left wants not only to destroy Trump but by their economic crippling edicts and executive orders destroy the entire economy of America and even the world. That’s how much they need power and that’s the power they will wield over us.

    You’ve GOT to be against that which wants to destroy you simply in order to survive. We cannot let this maleficence continue in this country even if it means war. In fact one could argue they are making war on us right now and we aren’t fighting back.

    Trump 2020 Keep the malignancy at bay.

    Funny how the media is giving this as little play as possible.

    They’ve been played and refuse to admit it.
