11.5k views

<p>On CNBC&rsquo;s <em>Squawk Box</em> on March 30, a former senior Obama administration official tried to take back her earlier admission that the former administration tried to &ldquo;get as much information&rdquo; as possible on Trump and his associates before the transition of power &ndash; but she only dug herself in deeper.</p>

<p>Evelyn Farkas used to be the Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Russia/Ukraine/Eurasia under President Obama. Now, like former Press Secretary Josh Earnest, she&rsquo;s made the move over to NBC News as a National Security Analyst. Claiming that her previous statements had been misunderstood, Farkas insisted to the <em>Squawk Box</em> panel that she was only explaining &ldquo;why people might be motivated to do that.&rdquo; Later she seemed to imply that the Trump administration would threaten intelligence sources when she said &ldquo;people could get hurt, if people were giving us information.&rdquo;</p>
