WH: Obama Official Made It Clear Their Goal Was to ‘Leak Stuff’ on the Trump Team
CNS by Melanie Arter
-- The White House said Thursday that while the media is “obsessed” with the details surrounding House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes’ (R-Calif.) visit to the White House last week, it is focused on finding out who leaked the names of U.S. citizens, which the intelligence community incidentally collected information on during surveillance of the Trump campaign.
White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer pointed to Evelyn Farkas, deputy assistant secretary of defense during the Obama administration, who admitted to MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski of “Morning Joe” on March 2 that she encouraged her colleagues to “get as much intelligence as you can” on Trump before Obama left the White House in hopes of catching the Trump staff “dealing with Russians.”
