While no proof has yet surfaced to support President Donald Trump’s claim that former President Barack Obama had wiretapped Trump tower during the 2016 election campaign, recent revelations over the lengths that the Obama administration went to to try to dig up dirt on Trump are disturbing, at least.
Evelyn Farkas, deputy assistant secretary of defense under Obama, let slip during a March 2 interview with MSNBC that she and the people who worked for her were desperately looking to collect intelligence on Trump’s alleged ties with Russia before he was sworn in, Fox News reported.
“I was urging my former colleagues and, frankly speaking, the people on the Hill — 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,’” Farkas explained to Mika Brzezinski of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”
This intelligence effort might explain House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes’ bombshell revelation that Trump transition officials were caught in incidental surveillance operations, and their names potentially illegally unmasked.
“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 … that the Trump folks — if they found out how we knew what we knew about … 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,” Farkas told Brzezinski.
Farkas didn’t elaborate on how exactly she and her colleagues went about collecting this intelligence, leading to the possibility that the methods they used weren’t strictly legal.

Whatever the case, it is clear that Obama administration officials were desperate to do whatever they could to sink Trump’s presidency before it even got off the ground.
Despite all of their efforts, Trump is still the president, and there has been absolutely no evidence linking him in any way to Russian campaign interference.
If there were such evidence, the Democrats undoubtedly would have leaked it by this point, which means that, more likely than not, there wasn’t any collusion to leak in the first place — and that the Democrats are well aware of that fact.
