Kellyanne Conway Seems to Evade Wiretapping Questions

Conway, 50, spoke about the explosive allegations during an appearance on Good Morning America on Monday, March 13.

She said she was answering a question about surveillance "generally", and without specific reference to the current spying claims.

McCain's demand came after the House intelligence committee asked the president for evidence that phones at Trump Tower were tapped during the campaign.

So Conway said that microwaves can spy on us but then said she knows that's not true.

Trump's critics have slammed the president for making the wiretapping claim on his Twitter account without evidence.

Controversy machine, couch-sitter, and presidential aide Kellyanne Conway is back in the fight after addressing accusations that the Trump campaign was wiretapped, as the president alleged during an early morning tweet storm over a week ago.


If you thought the flurry surrounding Donald Trump's baseless claim that President Barack Obama had Trump Tower wiretapped during the 2016 campaign was over, think again. The White House counselor responded by arguing that "there are many ways to surveil", including monitoring people "through their television sets" and "microwaves that turn into cameras".

In an interview the Bergen Record published Sunday, Conway suggested that the surveillance could have been done with "microwaves that turn into cameras".

The Republican chairman and the top ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee have written to the Justice Department asking for evidence to be provided by Monday in support of Trump's allegation.

During another stop, on CNN, she engaged in a tense back-and-forth with host Chris Cuomo after he repeatedly asked her to explain why she would have made such a claim, without evidence, in the first place.

Mr Trump has asked Congress to investigate.

McCain told CNN there are "a lot of aspects" of the relationship between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation that require more investigation. However, he added that Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey and others called to testify at the upcoming hearing "would be in a position to have to know". "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?'"
