Farkas Under Oath: I Was Lying

As you can imagine, netizens everywhere are pawing through the just released 53 witness transcripts, pried loose from Adam Schiff's dungeon for truth. We can expect many more nuggets such as this one that Sean Davis at The Federalist dug up.

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.


  1. Farkas was on multiple MSNBC shows, not just Morning Joe, where she told the public that the US was able to read the signals intelligence of the Russian diplomatic corps including their Ambassador in the US. She also urged congressional staffers who did not have access or need to know to get access to classified information so as to diseminate it as widely as possible. She purposely damaged US intelligence operational capabilities (FBI/NSA), specificly against the Russians. She should be charged with the appropriate crimes along with those congressional staffers who followed her suggestions. Then maybe the House police and the FBI can take another look at Imran Arwan's network to see if any of those people connect to him, or others like him.

    1. We're about to find out in the coming months just how far Barr and Durham intend to go with this.

  2. There already are too many Democrat demagogues like her in Congress. Indeed, she is an admitted liar who cynically attempted to foment a false hysteria.

    It's good that she was questioned under oath, that she was compelled to answer these questions and that the interview now is available to the public.

    1. I suspect that these transcripts are going to provide a cascade of information, revealing more of the inner workings of the Russia Hoax. Data strands for researchers to start pulling on.

  3. Has there been any legacy media coverage of these now-released interviews? I'm not seeing any mentions.

    Perhaps it's because they reveal nothing, i.e. all witnesses could testify to no known evidence, so it goes against the collusion narrative. Therefore, hiding and obscuring the testimony serves the narrative being pushed.

    1. Just as the FBI needs to be turned upside down and inside out so that the public may know, as Tucker Carlson puts it, "The most important question of all: How often does the FBI set people up? How many other lives have they destroyed without the public knowing about it?" so too does our "free press," populated by leftist activists pushing their agenda of lies while posing as journalists, need to undergo the most historic invasive audit of its purpose and function. This was not the first rodeo for the unholy FBI-CIA-Media triumvirate.

  4. Farkas is a flaky fibbing fabricator who likes to fling fables in our face.

    with apologies to Shakespeare.

  5. Farkas admitted under oath before the House committee hearing that she had urged colleagues in the Obama administration to leak anything that could be damaging to Trump as it was her belief anything like that would be disappeared when the Trump administration took over.

    Whatever she said to fake news, lie-all-the-time MSNBC, her testimony under oath remains.
