<p>Appearing in MSNBC&rsquo;s 3 p.m. ET hour on Thursday, Evelyn Farkas, the former Obama administration official <a href="http://www.newsbusters.org/blogs/nb/mike-ciandella/2017/03/30/former-ob…; target="_blank">who admitted on national television</a> earlier this month that the Democratic administration was trying to &ldquo;get as much information&rdquo; as possible about Donald Trump and his associates, claimed she was actually the victim of a &ldquo;dark campaign of fake news.&rdquo;</p>

<p>Farkas, President Obama&rsquo;s former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense and now an NBC News National Security Analyst, complained to anchor Kate Snow: <strong>&ldquo;And on the dark campaign of fake news, you know, that&#39;s still ongoing. We see even someone like myself get swept up in all of this.</strong> You know, when people like me are speaking on behalf of process, people spin to it suit their needs. <strong>And I think it may be that the Russians are behind even such fake news today.&rdquo;</strong></p>
