Breaking story…The NY Times has revealed the names of Devin Nunes’s sources which happens to immediately follow the breaking Evelyn Farkus story. Farkus suggested Democrats on The Hill and in the Obama White House were complicit in surveillance of Democrat opponents and the leaking of intel.
Let’s go back. Rep. Nunes gave a presser last week in which he stated that “incidental” spying and leaking on Trump officials took place during the campaign. The intel had nothing to do with Russia. Nunes said he found it troubling because the government was spying on Americans.
The anti-Trump media, which is intent on destroying Trump, in a desperate attempt to take away from the story and to belittle Nunes, has been tapping their sources – Obama embeds – to find out who Nunes’ sources were.
The NY Times in a fit of gleeful rebuke of Devin Nunes announced the names of the alleged officials — based on leaks of course.
They are Ezra Cohen-Watnick, the senior director for intelligence at the National Security Council, and Michael Ellis, a lawyer who works on national security issues at the White House Counsel’s Office and formerly worked on the staff of the House Intelligence Committee.
The Times reports:
Mr. Cohen-Watnick is a former Defense Intelligence Agency official who was originally brought to the White House by Michael T. Flynn, the former national security adviser. The officials said that earlier this month, shortly after Mr. Trump wrote on Twitter about being wiretapped on the orders of President Barack Obama, Mr. Cohen-Watnick began reviewing highly classified reports detailing the intercepted communications of foreign officials.
General Flynn was ratted out by Obama embeds because he would have been trouble for them.
Officials said the reports consisted primarily of ambassadors and other foreign officials talking about how they were trying to develop contacts within Mr. Trump’s family and inner circle in advance of his inauguration.
The officials spoke on the condition of anonymity to describe the intelligence, and to avoid angering Mr. Cohen-Watnick and Mr. Ellis. Officials say that Mr. Cohen-Watnick has been reviewing the reports from his fourth-floor office in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building, where the National Security Counsel is based.
But the officials’ description of the intelligence is in line with Mr. Nunes’s own characterization of the material, which he has said was not related to the Russia investigations when he first disclosed its existence in a hastily arranged news conference on March 22.
This follows the widespread publication of an MSNBC interview of Evelyn Farkus, a low-level defense official, appointed by Obama and now working for a big Hillary donor. She admitted the Obama administration was spying and leaking.
She was either doing it herself or encouraging the spying and leaking of intel to the Democrat politicians on Capitol Hill.
Meanwhile, the Director of National Intelligence Dan Coates is blocking intel from the House Intelligence Committtee investigating the matter.
Fox has learned that the NSA is prepared to share the documents with the intelligence committees. But DNI is blocking that transfer for now.

One thing is for certain, these embeds have to be rooted out and, if they can’t be fired, they have to be shipped out to some remote outpost on the other side of the earth.
