Kellyanne Conway Makes Spectacle of Herself on Trump Wiretap Claim

I have no idea what article Conway was referencing but it's probable she's getting microwave ovens confused with microwave cameras, which, yes, can be used for surveillance purposes. She added that one of these ways of monitoring includes "microwaves that turn into cameras", which we know as "a fact of modern life", she claimed.

Trump senior counselor Kellyanne Conway, for her part, said Monday, "I don't have any evidence" to back up the wiretapping claims.

"Let me ask you about one of the things that seems to be dogging, at least this past week, is the wiretaps - the allegation that Trump Tower was wiretapped", Kelly asked Conway.

Mr. Schiff, the ranking Democrat on the House intelligence committee told ABC's "This Week" that he doesn't expect the Justice Department to produce by Monday proof of Mr. Trump's wiretap claim, as congressional Democrats have demanded.

"Do you know if Trump Tower was wiretapped?" the interviewer asks Conway in the video above. During the interview, Hayden directly said that the government is not spying on American citizens through their microwaves.

Yet some Republicans are calling for Trump to provide evidence that he was being watched by Obama.

Republican Senator Tom Cotton of Arkansas, who sits on the Senate Intelligence Committee, also said he had "not seen that evidence" of wiretapping, but he declined to call on Trump to apologize to Obama. Without any evidence, the wiretapping allegation may be chalked up to distraction from Trump's multiple ties to Russian Federation. John McCain's remark over the weekend: "Either retract the statement to President Obama or provide the information". "And if we get to the point where we can't, I think it's our obligation in the opposition to speak out and say this is not legitimate. Of course, I don't have any evidence for those allegations, and that answer has nothing to do with what the president said last week".

Conway also spoke about the situation during an interview with the Bergen County Record on Sunday.

James Clapper, who was Obama's director of national intelligence, has said that nothing matching Trump's claims had taken place.

"That's particularly what investigations are for", Conway added.

FBI Director James Comey asked the Department of Justice to publicly reject Trump's accusation, which the DOJ now has to bolster before Monday.
