Wednesday, in an exclusive interview on Tucker Carlson Tonight of Fox News, President Trump covered several topics, including where he is going with the allegation he made on Twitter claiming that President Obama ordered ‘wires’ on the Trump Tower over the course of the 2016 Presidential campaign.
President Trump said that the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence should expect him to be submitting evidence ‘very soon.’ He went on to say that he is ‘perhaps speaking about next week.’ He also corrected that his tweet was referring not only to wiretapping, but surveillance in general.
President Trump told us to keep our eyes open because we’re “going to find some very interesting items coming up to the forefront over the next 2 weeks.”
From Gateway Pundit:
Trump defended his ongoing use of social media while in office, saying that “maybe I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for Twitter, because I get such a fake press, such a dishonest press. He said that Twitter allowed him to get his word out without having to go through the filter of the media. He also addressed the leaking of two pages of his 2005 tax return that were shown on Rachel Maddow’s show. Trump also responded sharply to the leak of two pages of his 2005 tax returns, calling the MSNBC report “a disgrace.” “I have no idea where they got it but it’s illegal and they’re not supposed to have it and it’s not supposed to be leaked, and it’s certainly not an embarrassing tax return at all, but it’s an illegal thing they’ve been doing it, they’ve done it before and I think it’s a disgrace,” he said. Although he is the President, he is constrained in that he can’t just ask people doing investigations that may pertain theoretically to the Trump campaign for the evidence. To do so would be viewed as a potential interference.
