Former CIA Officers told Lifezette that Evelyn Farkas, the former deputy assistant secretary of state who served under FORMER President Barack Hussein Obama, may have revealed criminal actions on the part not just of herself but of the Obama administration.
Law enforcement experts say Obama official must testify on ‘unmasking,’ may have admitted crime.
Evelyn Farkas, former deputy assistant secretary of defense, left the government in 2015 and now works as a fellow at the Atlantic Council. She told Brezinski that she urged her former colleagues to “preserve” the intelligence.
“The Trump folks, if they found out how we knew what we knew about the staff, the Trump staff’s dealings with Russians, that they would try to compromise these sources and methods, meaning we would no longer have access to that intelligence,” she said. “So I became very worried because not enough was coming out in the open, and I knew that there was more.”
She added, “That’s why you have the leaking. People are worried.”
Some national security experts said Farkas’ comments lend credibility to allegations that outgoing Obama administration officials mishandled classified information for political reasons.
“What she said precisely tracks with what many of us have been saying: The Obama administration did abuse national security information,” Fred Fleitz, a former CIA officer, told LifeZette. “It was almost too good to be true.”
Fleitz, now senior vice president for policy and programs at the Washington-based Center for Security Policy, said there are appropriate ways to preserve national security information.
“If they had concerns, they could bring it to the FBI,” he said.
