Kellyanne Conway Says Obama May Have Used Microwaves to Spy on Trump


Kellyanne Conway, one of President Donald Trump’s most trusted advisors was back on television over the weekend and again this morning. Conway was asked about any evidence to back up the president’s claims of wiretapping. He has said that he thinks President Obama had his phone tapped during the campaign.

When asked about what proof she might have about the wiretapping claims, Conway said, “I don’t have any evidence for these allegations and that answer has nothing to do with what the president said last week.” She also said that while she has no evidence, this is “why there’s an investigation in Congress.”

Conway also told several news outlets, “There was an article that week that talked about how you can surveil people through their phones, through their — certainly through their television sets, any number of different ways. And microwaves that turn into cameras, et cetera. We know that is just a fact of modern life.”

It all comes down to WikiLeaks.

The advisor has been widely mocked for these statements but they were most likely a response to the most recent WikiLeaks document dump. Last week, the clandestine organization released documents showing ways the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) collects information.

Today is an important day for the investigation into the wiretapping claims. The House Intelligence committee has made it a deadline for the Department of Justice to provide any information that is has gathered about this. Members of the president’s own party are growing increasingly frustrated by the situation. Senator John McCain told CNN, “”I have no reason to believe that the charge is true, but I also believe that the President of the United States could clear this up in a minute. 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?'”

For her part, Conway is not planning to comment on the issue until Congress has investigated it.
