Spicer: Investigation Will “Vindicate” Trump on Obama Wiretapping Charges

Whether it’s Sean Spicer or Kellyanne Conway, they always start dissembling with unqualified discussions on surveillance techniques whenever they are asked a direct question about their boss’s ridiculous wiretapping allegations against former President Obama. Spicer never goes as far as Conway — who has now famously suggested even common kitchen appliances could have been used to bug Trump — but he always finds a way to weasel out of a direct answer.

He did so again in today’s White House press briefing but elaborated a bit saying that there is “significant reporting” to back up Trump’s wild claim and that he believes President Mini-Mitts will ultimately be “vindicated.”

“I think he’s extremely confident. There’s been, I mean, I’ve mentioned this before… I’ll let them do their jobs,” said Spicer, when asked if Trump is confident that any evidence will surface to support his claim. “I’ll let the House, the Senate and I’ll let the DOJ report this. But as I’ve commented in the past, I think there’s significant reporting about surveillance techniques that have existed throughout the 2016 election.”

“I’ll leave it to them to issue their report. But I think he feels very confident that we’ll ultimately, come of this [sic], will vindicate him.”

The reporter then followed up and simply asked if Trump will make a statement when evidence — any evidence, of any kind — comes out. Which should be an easy question to answer unless your name is Sean Spicer. He responded by blathering on about letting the investigations run their course, saying “I don’t want to get ahead of what the president may or may not do.”

The really funny part, given that Conway was in the briefing room, was when Spicer was also asked if Trump believes “… he was surveilled through microwaves and televisions.”

“I’ll just say the president has tweeted about this, he’s pretty clear that he believes there was surveillance conducted during the 2016 election,” said the diminutive mouthpiece. “I think there’s pretty sound evidence that the microwave is not a sound way of surveilling someone and I think that has been cleaned up. It was made in jest, so I think we can put that to rest.”

Why, oh why, wasn’t there a camera on Conway as Spicer answered that question?

Here’s the clip of Spicer saying he believes Trump will be vindicated.

Conway: Obama May Have Spied on Trump Using Kitchen Appliances

Trump spokesgoblin Kellyanne Conway was at it again yesterday, upping the ante on the administration’s ridiculous wiretapping accusations against President Obama, saying that the former president could have met his nefarious goals by bugging kitchen appliances, such as a microwave.

“What I can say is there are many ways to surveil each other,” croaked Conway. “You can surveil someone through their phones, certainly through their television sets — any number of ways.”

She further said that there are “microwaves that turn into cameras,” and sagely advising “We know this is a fact of modern life.”

Next up: Conway accuses Obama of having “turned” the lovable Pillsbury Doughboy and using the eight-inch tall pastry icon to perform further intel operations on Trump’s kitchen.

Update: Conway has apparently started walking back her kitchen-appliance theories saying on CNN today “I’m not inspector gadget. I don’t believe people are using the microwave to spy on the campaign.”
