Once again, KellyAnne Conway is trying to pull her foot out of her mouth. On Sunday, during an interview with the Bergen Press, Conway suggested that microwaves may have been used for surveillance in Trump campaign.
Despite the lack of evidence surrounding President Trump’s wiretapping accusations, Conway continued to defend his demand for an investigation. She showcased her vast knowledge of surveillance techniques as evidence that her boss could have been spied on.
“What I can say is there are many ways to surveil each other now, unfortunately.” She then added, “There was an article this week that talked about how you can surveil someone through their phones, through their — certainly through their television sets, any number of different ways, and microwaves that turn into cameras, etc., so we know that that is just a fact of modern life.”
This morning she tried to walk that claim back on the morning shows and via Twitter.
When Today Show Host, Savannah Guthrie tried to get an answer regarding the wiretapping claims, Conway did her best to spin the conversation away to things less controversial, like repealing Obamacare.
Later she told ABC, “I have no evidence, but that’s why there is an investigation in Congress. That’s particularly what investigations are for.”
Gee, KellyAnne, thanks for clearing that up.
