Video: Former Obama official admits to encouraging Trump surveillance


A former Obama official has admitted outright that the Obama administration spied on Donald Trump before he moved into the Oval Office.

Evelyn Farkas, deputy assistant secretary of defense under Obama, proclaimed on MSNBC this week that she encouraged her former colleagues to gather as much intelligence as possible on the alleged Trump-Russia connection before Obama left office. As Farkas puts it, she “had a fear that somehow that information would disappear” once Obama left and Trump assumed the presidency.

Farkas said she was particularly concerned with disseminating the gathered intelligence to “the Hill people.”
