Spicer excoriates reporters for defending Obama official who admitted intelligence leaks: During Friday’s briefing, White House Press Secretary denounced reporters’ attempts to defend a former top Obama administration official who admitted on-air to having coordinated the collection and dissemination of Trump surveillance.
NPR’s Tamara Keith began the defense by pointing out that Dr. Evelyn Farkas had left the administration in 2015. Spicer pointed out just why that made things even worse…
As Spicer continues, another unidentified voice reminds Spicer that Dr. Farkas is a “former” Obama administration official to which Sean responds, “all Obama administration officials generally are.”
The press secretary asks reporters why they are so focused on inane details of Rep. Nunes visit to the Executive Building but aren’t following up on the genuine and startling revelations in the Farkas story.
