On Sunday, Trump advisor Kellyanne Conway claimed that Obama spied on Donald Trump’s campaign during the 2016 primaries.
During an interview at her home in Alpine, New Jersey, Conway humoured the idea that hackers can watch people through “microwaves that turn into cameras.”
Although she didn’t prove any of the surveillance claims, she tweeted Monday that she was “pleased” the House and Senate Intel committees were investigating. She also pushed back on media reports that she had suggested Obama had hacked Trump’s microwave. She called these reports Fake News.
The House Intelligence Committee has asked the White House to fork over actual evidence about the surveillance claims by Monday, so we’ll have to wait and see if Obama really was watching Trump burn his bacon through a secret camera on his microwave or whatever.
