"But wiretap covers a lot of different things".
"Don't forget, when I say wiretap, those words were in quotes", Trump said while making air quotes.
Three days after President Donald Trump sits down with Fox News Channel's primetime star Tucker Carlson, he's also appear on the network's Watters World. Tucker was equally shocked that Trump tweeted about it without presenting any evidence, and asked the President is doing things like that diminishes his credibility. I read in, I think it was January 20th, a New York Times article where they were talking about wiretapping. So if I'm not going to - if they're not going to do me the honor and the public the honor of spreading my word accurately as it was meant, and you know exactly what I'm talking about, because there's been nobody in history that got more dishonest media than I've gotten.
"Now, for the most part, I'm not going to discuss it because we have it before [the House Intelligence Committee] and we will be submitting things before the committee very soon that hasn't been submitted as of yet", he went on. But it's potentially a very serious situation.
Trump said he believes that tweet will prove not to be a mistake, adding that he wants all his messages to his 100 million followers across all forms of social media to connect with people. "I read in January a New York Times article". I've been seeing a lot of things. And nobody ever talks about the fact that it was in quotes, but that's a very important thing. He did not elaborate on what the alleged evidence includes or what action he expects the committee to take. At one point, the topic of conversation turned to Trump's chaos-inducing tweet on March 4 accusing his predecessor, Barack Obama, of "wire tapping" Trump Tower. "Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!" Of course Trump went the total opposite direction by thanking Twitter for his success and popularity.
Obama's director of national intelligence, James Clapper, has denied anything matching Trump's claims had taken place.
