Kellyanne Conway Talks Wiretapping Claims On “Today” Show (VIDEO)
Kellyanne Conway, counselor to President Donald Trump, appeared on Monday’s “Today” show to discuss the controversial wiretapping claims. Watch the full interview below.
As Gossip Cop reported, Trump accused Barack Obama of wiretapping his phone and Trump Tower during the 2016 presidential election. In a series of tweets, the president wrote, “Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my ‘wires tapped’ in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!” He continued, “Is it legal for a sitting President to be ‘wire tapping’ a race for president prior to an election? Turned down by court earlier. A NEW LOW!”
Following Trump’s bold accusations, which lack in evidence, Conway spoke to Savannah Guthrie and Matt Lauer on the morning show about the supposed claims. “We’re very happy that the House and Senate Intelligence Committee see enough to go ahead and add this to an investigation. We’re glad it’s happening,” Conway said.
Guthrie noted, “The media did not bring up this topic. President Trump did. All the more reason to question why he would bring that up. It isn’t something a blogger wrote, it’s something the President of the United States accused his predecessor of, of tapping his phone.” “It’s under investigation,” Conway said.
