The Obama Official Who Lied About Russian Collusion Is Using the Narrative to Get Elected

U.S. Department of Defense

In March 2017, former Obama Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Russia, Ukraine and Eurasia Evelyn Farkas sat down with MSNBC for an interview. In it, she claimed the Trump campaign colluded with the Russian government to win the 2016 presidential election.

"The Trump folks, if they found out how we knew what we knew about the staff, the Trump's staff dealings with Russians that they would try to compromise those sources and methods. Meaning, we would no longer have access to that intelligence," she said.

But during an interview with the House Intelligence Committee in June 2017, where she was under oath, she admitted she didn't have any information about collusion during that interview. (Matt covered this extensively, you can read that here).

Through dozens of House Intelligence Committee transcripts and after a lengthy Special Counsel investigation, it was clear from the beginning "Russian collusion" with the Trump campaign was a made up talking point that was used as a political weapon.

Now, Farkas is running for Congress in New York's 17th District and she's using her false allegations of collusion as part of her platform.

"By the time she left the Pentagon, Evelyn was shocked at how urgently our own democracy needed protection. She was one of the first to raise the alarm about President Trump’s corrupt ties to Russia. She was attacked by Fox News, Sean Hannity, and conservative media, but she would not be silenced," he campaign website states.
