BRZEZINSKI: “Evelyn Farkas, the other story of the day. You actually new about this attempt to get and preserve information and full transparency were doing work yourself. Tell us about that.”

FARKAS: “Well I was — I was urging my former colleagues and — and frankly speaking, the people on the Hill, it was more actually aimed — 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 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 their, the staff, the Trump staff’s dealing with Russians, that they would try to compromise those sources and methods, meaning we would 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 trying to also help get information to the Hill.”

BRZEZINSKI: “A lot going on today.”

FARKAS: “Yeah.”

BRZEZINSKI: “Mark Halperin.”

FARKAS: “But that’s why you have the leaking.”

BRZEZINSKI: “Exactly.”

FARKAS: “People are worried.”

BRZEZINSKI: “All right. Put it in ten seconds, Mark Halperin, all the news of the day.”

HALPERIN: “There’s going to be a lot of pressure today on the White House and the attorney general to say more about what the meeting was about and why it wasn’t disclosed previously.”
