White House adviser Kellyanne Conway is hinting that there might be more to President Trump's still unfounded claim that former President Obama wiretapped him before the election. Conway said in an interview published yesterday in New Jersey's "Bergen County Record" that what she called "surveillance" might be wider than Trump suggested. Conway said, quote, "You can surveil someone through their phones, certainly through their television sets, any number of ways." Conway said monitoring could be done with "microwaves that turn into cameras." Conway didn't offer any evidence to support her claims.
The House Intelligence Committee has given the Justice Department until the close of business today to turn over any evidence that Trump Tower phones were tapped as part of what Trump claims is a secret plot by the Obama administration to monitor his campaign.
