Yeah, I had to listen to it four times because I couldn't believe my ears at what this unbelievably myopic bureaucrat was actually saying.
This has inflamed the Hill & the Conservative media because Farkas admits what many of us suspected. Further, Mika Brezinski's reaction was classic in that she knew that this particular interview was a red-herring if anyone on the opposition caught it.

Former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense Evelyn Farkas has caused controversy after she appeared to admit during an appearance on MSNBC that the Obama administration spied on Donald Trump’s transition team in order to gather “intelligence” for political use.
Farkas explained to Mika Brzezinski how in its final days, the Obama administration scrambled to gather information about the Trump team’s alleged ties to Russia.
"I was urging my former colleagues, and, and frankly speaking the people on the Hill [Democrat politicians], it was more actually aimed at telling the Hill people, get as much information as you can – get as much intelligence as you can – before President Obama leaves the administration.
Because I had a fear that somehow that information would disappear with the senior [Obama] people who left; so it would be hidden away in the bureaucracy, um, that the Trump folks – if they found out HOW we knew what we knew about their, the Trump staff, dealing with Russians – that they would try to compromise those sources and methods; meaning we no longer have access to that intelligence.
So I became very worried because not enough was coming out into the open and I knew that there was more. We have very good intelligence on Russia; so then I had talked to some of my former colleagues and I knew that they were also trying to help get information to [Democrat politicians]."
Farkas’ admission suggests she was a source for the New York Times, which revealed earlier this month that, “More than a half-dozen current and former officials” had attempted to “preserve and distribute the intelligence,” including “classified information” before Trump took office.

The following account of a woman driving both erratically & aggressively sounds eerily familiar to an event which took place during the Obama regime. A woman with a child had come to visit the White House, but under mysterious circumstances, was murdered by Capital Hill police.
The woman was unarmed and did not assault anyone.
The story soon after emerged, in explanation of the event, that the 1-year old inside the car was rumored to be the child of former president Obama.
In this later incident, although shots were fired, the woman seems to have survived calmly intact.
Based on the very odd set of events associated with the now motherless child and threats, to both detectives associated with the investigation & investigative journalists digging for the actual facts, the rumors did seem to point to something off being afoot.
However, Obama's advocative media chose to cover the story up and the inner-beltway hushed the entire incident up, out of fear.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A woman was arrested near the U.S. Capitol in Washington after police said she drove erratically, crashed into another vehicle and tried to run over officers on Wednesday.
No one was hurt during the morning commotion, during which police fired shots, and the incident did not appear related to terrorism, Capitol Police spokeswoman Eva Malecki told reporters.
"Although preliminary, this incident appears criminal in nature with no nexus to terrorism," Malecki said at a news conference.
The events came a week after five people were killed and about 40 injured in London, when a car plowed into pedestrians near Britain's parliament and the suspected militant Islamist-inspired attacker stabbed a police officer.
The drama near the Capitol began after officers attempted a traffic stop for an erratic driver. The woman made a U-turn and drove away, nearly hitting officers and striking at least one other vehicle, Malecki said.
When police stopped the car after a brief pursuit, they fired shots as they tried to arrest the suspect, Malecki said. She declined to say why officers opened fire, noting the incident remains under investigation.
The woman has not been identified.
As the incident unfolded, a Reuters reporter saw two Capitol Police officers running down the western side of Capitol Hill holding assault rifles.
Operations inside the white-domed Capitol appeared normal, however. Tourists filed through the Capitol Rotunda, and the U.S. Senate opened its session with Republican Majority Leader Mitch McConnell urging confirmation for Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court.
After the incident, television footage showed officers and police vehicles surrounding a dark-colored sedan blocked off by police tape.
In 2013, Capitol Police shot and killed the driver of a car carrying a 1-year-old girl after a chase from near the White House to the Capitol.

This story, written back in August of 2016, has taken on new life as Trump has recently sought to turn the tables on the Democrats and their mainstream media advocates by spotlighting the following smoking gun of a story.
Trump was highlighting how and why Hillary, as Sec State, finagled the sale of 20% of US uranium to Russia while at the same time having received massive amounts of cash to Bill Clinton, for a speech to Russian oligarchs.
The mainstream media has been feigning outrage over Trump jokingly urging the Russians to find Hillary Clinton's 33,000 deleted emails which allegedly concern weddings, Yoga, recipes, and messaging from Bill Clinton, who doesn't even use email.
But now, the whole storyline has changed in that the Dems are going full-bore against Trump on his non-existent ties to Russia.
But, they are apparently forgetting about Obama's hot mic exchange with Putin apparatchik Medvedev, in a meeting in Korea, as featured at the beginning of this article.
Obama and Medvedev were discussing the de-armament of America in a highly conspiratorial tone, and yet the media, at the time, didn't seem to have a problem with it.
So, why would they have a problem now over Hillary's lawyer-deleted emails which concerned recipes, Yoga, and weddings?
And then, there's the reset button Where Hillary reset the Cold War with the Russians.
But, that's not important, it was funny maybe even a joke, and yet, despite Obama continually striking a conciliatory aspect with the Russians, they still invaded the Crimea in Ukraine.
But, most folks don't actually know the full story behind that.
Obama, as a slightly younger Senator, actually enabled the later Russian invasion of Ukraine in 2005, when he led the operation in actually disarming Ukraine, making the Russian invasion possible.
Obama inspecting his handiwork in 2005
According to the UK Daily Mail, Obama's enablement of Russia's invasion went this way:
"As a U.S. senator, Barack Obama won $48 million in federal funding to help Ukraine destroy thousands of tons of guns and ammunition – weapons which are now unavailable to the Ukrainian army as it faces down Russian President Vladimir Putin during his invasion of Crimea.
In August 2005, just seven months after his swearing-in, Obama traveled to Donetsk in Eastern Ukraine with then-Indiana Republican Senator Dick Lugar, touring a conventional weapons site.
The two met in Kiev with President Victor Yushchenko, making the case that an existing Cooperative Threat Reduction Program covering the destruction of nuclear weapons should be expanded to include artillery, small arms, anti-aircraft weapons, and conventional ammunition of all kinds.
After a stopover in London, the senators returned to Washington and declared that the U.S. should devote funds to speed up the destruction of more than 400,000 small arms, 1,000 anti-aircraft missiles, and more than 15,000 tons of ammunition."
Could the Russian invasion have gotten any more convenient without the August actions of Senator Obama?
And finally, there's that little fact about Hillary Clinton, via the US State Department, who acted on behalf of the Russians to lay claim to a substantial amount of America's uranium, used for making nuclear bombs.
According to the New York Times, it was Hillary Clinton, after receiving massive cash donations from Russia, who enabled the ownership of a company, controlled by Russia, which handled a substantial portion of America's uranium deposits:
"The headline on the website Pravda trumpeted President Vladimir V. Putin’s latest coup, its nationalistic fervor recalling an era when its precursor served as the official mouthpiece of the Kremlin: “Russian Nuclear Energy Conquers the World.”
As the Russians gradually assumed control of Uranium One in three separate transactions from 2009 to 2013, Canadian records show, a flow of cash made its way to the Clinton Foundation. Uranium One’s chairman used his family foundation to make four donations totaling $2.35 million.
Among the agencies that eventually signed off was the State Department, then headed by Mr. Clinton’s wife,Hillary Rodham Clinton.
Those contributions were not publicly disclosed by the Clintons, despite an agreement Mrs. Clinton had struck with the Obama White House to publicly identify all donors. Other people with ties to the company made donations as well.
And shortly after the Russians announced their intention to acquire a majority stake in Uranium One, Mr. Clinton received $500,000 for a Moscow speech from a Russian investment bank with links to the Kremlin that was promoting Uranium One stock.
At the time, both Rosatom and the United States government made promises intended to ease concerns about ceding control of the company’s assets to the Russians. Those promises have been repeatedly broken, records show."
The irony wrapped within an enigma, in all of this, is the fact that the US media seems to have forgotten all of these Manchurian candidate moments when it comes to Obama and his protege', Hillary Clinton, who are attacking Trump While trying to characterize the GOP nominee as a lesser Manchurian candidate.
It would appear that someone's forgetting an awful lot of history....

Back when Obamacare was initially passed, it's success was achieved shortly after initially failing, when everyone thought it DOA, so, it makes sense that the efforts to kill it might work out in much the same way.
The simple fact is that despite all of the rhetoric being floated at present, only 17% of House members had signed onto the deal. And, this was despite the fact that Paul Ryan had been declaring, weeks earlier, that he had the votes to make it happen.
Ryan lied and the deal ultimately died, however, this time, with Ryan in some amount of trouble, a deal could still be pushed through...
The NY Times
WASHINGTON — House Republican leaders and the White House, under extreme pressure from conservative activists, have restarted negotiations on legislation to repeal the Affordable Care Act, with House leaders declaring that Democrats were celebrating the law’s survival prematurely.
Just days after President Trump said he was moving on to other issues, senior White House officials are now saying they have hope that they can still score the kind of big legislative victory that has so far eluded Mr. Trump. Vice President Mike Pence was dispatched to Capitol Hill on Tuesday for lunchtime talks.
“We’re not going to retrench into our corners or put up dividing lines,” House Speaker Paul D. Ryan said after a meeting of House Republicans that was dominated by a discussion of how to restart the health negotiations. “There’s too much at stake to get bogged down in all of that.”
The House Republican whip, Steve Scalise of Louisiana, said of Democrats, “Their celebration is premature. We are closer to repealing Obamacare than we ever have been before.”
It is not clear what political dynamics might have changed since Friday, when a coalition of hard-line conservatives and more moderate Republicans torpedoed legislation to repeal President Barack Obama’s signature domestic achievement. The replacement bill would still leave 24 million more Americans without insurance after a decade, a major worry for moderate Republicans. It would also leave in place regulations on the health insurance industry that conservatives find anathema.
Mr. Ryan declined to say what might be in the next version of the Republicans’ repeal bill, nor would he sketch any schedule for action. But he said Congress needed to act because insurers were developing the premiums and benefit packages for health plans they would offer in 2018, with review by federal and state officials beginning soon.
The new talks, which have been going on quietly this week, involve Stephen K. Bannon, the president’s chief strategist, and members of the two Republican factions that helped sink the bill last week, the hard-right Freedom Caucus and the more centrist Tuesday Group.
Any deal would require overcoming significant differences about how to rework a law that covers about one-fifth of the American economy, differences that were so sharp they led Mr. Trump and Mr. Ryan to pull the bill from consideration just as the House was scheduled to vote on Friday.
Still, Republican members of Congress said they hoped that revisiting the issue would lead this time to a solution and a vote in the House.
