The media is playing up the fact that Kellyanne Conway said she had no proof that Donald Trump was wire tapped. This is fake news in two different ways. What Conway actually said was that Trump was being surveilled. That is not necessarily being wire tapped. It could mean being followed or using a device such as a telephone or a computer.
Secondly, until the NSA or FBI comes clean not even the president would know. But since we know some of Trump’s appointee’s conversations were leaked and the fact that the New York Times even admitted a story on Gen Flynn was the result of a wire tap, it leads to a logical conclusion.
Kellyanne Conway said she wasn’t talking about Trump Tower specifically when she noted that there were a “number of ways” to surveil someone.
When George Stephanopoulos asked the president’s senior counselor why she suggested that Trump Tower was monitored in multiple ways during a recent interview, she clarified that she has no evidence that Barack Obama wiretapped the president.
“I wasn’t making a suggestion about Trump Tower,” Conway said during the interview Monday. “These are two separate things.”
“But that’s what you were asked about,” Stephanopoulos cut in.
“And I answered about surveilling generally,” Conway said. “I have no evidence, but that’s why there’s an investigation in Congress. That’s particularly what investigations are for. 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.”
“What I can say is there are many ways to surveil each other,” Conway said. “You can surveil someone through their phones, certainly through their television sets — any number of ways.”
