Evelyn Farkas, deputy assistant secretary of defense under Obama, made the disclosure while on the air with MSNBC?s Mika Brzezinski.

?I was urging my former colleagues and, frankly speaking, the people on the Hill, it was more actually 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,? Farkas, who is now a senior fellow at the Atlantic Council, said.

?Because I had a fear that somehow that information would disappear with the senior [Obama] 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 Trump staff dealing with Russians ? that they would try to compromise those sources and methods, meaning we no longer have access to that intelligence.?

The comments come as lawmakers on Capitol Hill clash over House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes' claim last week that surveillance operations incidentally collected Trump team communications during the transition. Critics have accused Nunes of carrying water for Trump and called on him to recuse himself from Russia matters, but Nunes and his congressional allies have pushed back.
