Intelligence Committee requests evidence from Trump administration over wiretap claim

Intelligence Committee requests evidence from Trump administration over wiretap claim

Said Conway, "There was an article this week that talked about how you can surveil someone through their phone, through their television sets, any number of different ways, microwaves that turn into cameras, etc".

"We know this is a fact of modern life", she said. "All he has to do is pick up the phone, call the director of the CIA, Director of National Intelligence, and say 'ok, what happened?' becuase they certainly should know whether the former president of the United States was wiretapping Trump Towers". Follow the logical progression here: Trump says he's seen evidence of President Obama ordering illegal surveillance; the White House says it's up to Congress to uncover the evidence; and Kellyanne Conway is glad lawmakers may uncover the evidence she already has access to. Speaking with Wired, microwave imaging and radar researcher Stephen Frasier reportedly laughed as he said "unless it's a voice-activated microwave oven connected to the internet" then it could not conceivably be done. "Just out: The same Russian Ambassador that met Jeff Sessions visited the Obama White House 22 times, and 4 times a year ago alone". As the commander in chief and de facto leader of law enforcement in the country, it is Trump's solemn responsibility to immediately share whatever evidence he has about these alleged heinous crimes with the Justice Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation so that Obama can be brought to justice.

Be nice, you will do much better!' Trump Tweeted Monday morning, as Conway navigated a gauntlet of appearances.

The House Intelligence Committee has asked White House to provide evidence of its allegations by Monday. A NEW LOW! I'd bet a good lawyer could make a great case out of the fact that President Obama was tapping my phones in October, just prior to Election!

"We should be able to determine in fairly short order whether this allegation is true or false", Mr Schiff said. "I noticed on your show yesterday with Congressman [Adam] Schiff that he said he plans to ask Director Comey about this when he has him in front of the committee leader in a month".

The president has an obligation to provide evidence that Mr Obama broke the law or retract his claim, the Arizona Republican said.

A spokesman for Obama called the claims "simply false", and the former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, who left the government in January, has said there was no wiretap activity directed at Trump or his campaign by the Obama administration.
