Judicial Watch: Documents Reveal Obama State Department Provided Classified Records to Sen. Ben Cardin to Undermine President Trump

'The Obama administration was attempting to disseminate that material widely across the government in order to aid in future investigations' -- The Baltimore Sun

Contact: Jill Farrell, Judicial Watch, 202-646-5172
 
WASHINGTON, Jan. 31, 2018 /Standard Newswire/ -- Judicial Watch today released 42 pages of heavily redacted State Department documents containing classified information that was provided to Senator Ben Cardin (D-MD), top Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and outspoken critic of President Donald Trump. The documents show Russian political interference in elections and politics in countries across Europe.

According to a March 2017 report in the Baltimore Sun: "Maryland Sen. Ben Cardin received classified information about Russia's involvement in elections when the Obama administration was attempting to disseminate that material widely across the government in order to aid in future investigations, according to a report Wednesday ... Obama officials were concerned, according to the report [in The New York Times, below], that the Trump administration would cover up intelligence once power changed hands."

In March 2017, former Obama Deputy Asst. Secretary of Defense Evelyn Farkas admitted that there was surveillance of President Trump's campaign and leaking of intelligence information. She encouraged people in the administration and on the Hill to "get as much intelligence as you can before President Obama leaves [office] ... I became very worried because not enough was coming out into the open and I knew that there was more ... That's why you have the leaking."
