Asked this afternoon if he felt “vindicated” in his statement that former President Barack Obama had “phones tapped” and engaged in other surveillance of Trump Tower, President Donald Trump‘s response was measured. “Somewhat yes,” he said. “Somewhat I do.”
It may be one of the few times the new President has been modest.
House Intelligence Committee chair Rep. Devin Nunes (in photo) told stunned reporters on Wednesday that members of President Donald Trump’s transition team had been spied on by the Obama administration, and that individual names had been unlawfully “unmasked” by investigators.
More shockingly, the eaves-dropped conversations were not always related to Russia.
Nunes’s information, which he rushed to the White House with this morning for an emergency hearing with the President, vindicates a lot of Trump’s claims earlier this month.
