Evelyn Farkas--currently running for Congress in the 17th District of NY (Nita Lowey's old seat)--was the deputy assistant secretary of Defense for Russia, Ukraine, and Eurasia during Obama's second term. On March 2, 2017 Farkas made a then famous appearance on MSNBC. In that appearance she urged Obama holdovers in the federal bureaucracy to leak to the media--to commit felonies. Farkas claimed that Trump officials would destroy evidence of collusion if they “found out how we knew what we knew about the Trump staff’s dealing with Russians.”
“Not enough was coming out into the open and I knew there was more,” Farkas claimed.
But Farkas sang a different tone under oath when questioned by lawmakers about what she actually “knew” about collusion.
“Why don’t we go back to that sentence that I just asked you about. It says ‘the Trump folks, if they found out how we knew what we knew about their staff dealing with Russians,” Gowdy said. “Well, how would you know what the U.S. government knew at that point? You didn’t work for it, did you?”
“I didn’t,” said Farkas, ...
“Then how did you know?” Gowdy responded.
“I didn’t know anything,” Farkas said.
“Did you have information connecting the Trump campaign to the hack of the DNC?” Gowdy asked.
“No,” Farkas admitted.
“So when you say, ‘We knew,’ the reality is you knew nothing,” Gowdy asked later during the deposition.
“Correct,” Farkas responded.
Gowdy didn’t stop there.
“So when you say ‘knew,’ what you really meant was felt?” he asked.
“Correct,” Farkas answered.
“You didn’t know anything?” Gowdy continued.
“That’s correct,” Farkas responded.
An admitted liar, cynically attempting to foment a false mass hysteria should be barred forever from public life, shunned by civic minded society. Instead she's running for Congress. And then, after all, Farkas is one of many playing the same role in this long running national disgrace. Media, politicians, the legal and education establishment. The spectacle is revolting, but they feel no shame.
