The white house wants Congress to dig deeper snooping, after Obama, the official comments


The White house has asked Congress to have to dig deeper into whether the communication of the trump employees were not properly taken up and used in the monitoring of operations, according to an ex-Obama administration official suggested that her former colleagues have been trying to collect material.

White House Counsel Don McGahn especially Evelyn Farkas’ comments quoted in a letter to the leaders of the House Intelligence Committee, as he invited legislators to view documents that clearly show the monitoring of the trump employees during the transition.

The leaders of the Committee were open and bitter sparring over the documents with the top Democrat Adam Schiff, D-Calif., Rays Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., for the display of the files on White house grounds, and on one side its contents announced in the media. Schiff and other Democrats Nunes called for the investigation to recuse themselves from a relatives in Russia, but Trump defended allies Nunes and say, the real Problem is the improper monitoring during administration.

‘I spoke with some of my former colleagues, and I knew that they were trying to help you get the information to the hill. That’s why you have the leak.’

McGahn flip moved the script in his letter to Nunes and ship, and pointing to Farkas’ comments as an indication of “possible inappropriate aggregation and dissemination of secret information.”

Farkas, deputy assistant secretary of defense under President Barack Obama, discussing collection efforts by your colleagues during 2. March interview with MSNBC. During the interview, Farkas, who is now a senior fellow at the Atlantic Council and MSNBC analyst, said, urging former colleagues and “people of the mountain”, “as much information as possible, as much intelligence as you can, before President Obama, the administration leaves.”


She said there were concerns that, if Trump knew officials what they knew about the “trump staff in dealing with the Russians,” they would have access to the intelligence cut off. She continued, “I spoke with some of my former colleagues, and I knew that they were trying to help you get the information to the hill. That’s why you have that are leaking.”

Farkas parted ways with the White house in the year 2015, and not “defended herself on Twitter, anything, except the Council” Russia-information and wanted to ask personally to someone of the Congress, for the facts.

She told The Daily Caller that she was not involved in the circulating no intelligence to say, “I was in the government and has access to all.”

But even if Farkas was not personally involved with any of the collection, McGahn asked to check the house Committee, as such intelligence is collected.

He asked them to consider whether it is “invalid exposure or the distribution of intelligence,” and whether the civil liberties of U.S. citizens were injured.

He also asked whether the information Farkas provided was designated to the members of Congress or their staff.

The letter puts a new pressure on the Committee to examine such a collection, and leaks, even as Democrats pressure Nunes, to the way of associating step, an investigation with a view to the Russian interference in last year’s campaign, including all Trump connections to Russia. Nunes has focused on issues such as the incorrect “debunking” of the Americans in the intelligence-collection efforts, and Farkas’ comments are sure to fuel that line of inquiry.

David Bossie, a Fox News post, who was trump’s Deputy campaign manager, called Farkas’ comments “devastating” and said she should be summoned by the Congress.

Meanwhile, new information coming to light about how Nunes the information last week about obvious surveillance efforts. Fox News has confirmed that two White house employees supported by Nunes as he searched for a proof that Trump’s transition team members were monitored continuously.

As the first of The “New York Times reported:” the staff were, as Ezra Cohen-Watnick, senior intelligence director at the National Security Council, and Michael Ellis, who works for the White house counsel’s office.

Ellis used to work for the house Intelligence Committee. Cohen-Watnick is a protege of former National security Advisor, Michael Flynn, whose communication with the Russian Ambassador were revealed at the beginning of this year, leading to his resignation.

It is the information on the monitoring and exposure appears to have been discovered by the Cohen-Watnick on the Executive’s computer system. After the information was apparently on his way to the counsel’s office, Nunes, to the White house grounds, to check it out. March 21.
