Earlier in the week, former Obama official Evelyn Farkas claimed that former President Barack Obama wiretapped Donald Trump.
However, after being forced to prove her claims, she later suggested that her claims were based on news stories.
Now she is blaming “fake news” and the “Russians” for her missteps.
“Dark campaign of fake news you know that’s still ongoing.

“There’s a total distortion about what I said…I was outside of government. I had no access to intelligence on this whatsoever, but I was concerned because I knew how the Russians operate and I was reading these reports about them hacking into the elections then giving the information to Wikipedia.”
