White House counselor #Kellyanne Conway admitted to ABC's George Stephanopolous that she has "no evidence" that the Trump Tower was "wiretapped" during the presidential campaign. Asking Ms. Conway to repeat herself, Mr. Stephanopolous asked her just "to be clear": "Are you are saying there is 'no evidence' for these wiretapping allegations?"

In a reference to an earlier interview on Sunday in her Alpine (New Jersey) home with a columnist with The Bergen County (N.J.) Record, Mike Kelly, Conway made a statement that went viral on social media in claiming that monitoring could be done with microwaves that turn into cameras.

She added, “We know this is a fact of modern life.”

Ms. Conway said that those comments to the #Bergen County Record were based on the WikiLeaks' release of thousands of documents revealing the tools used by the CIA and was about "surveillance generally” and were not meant to be taken as "specific proof" that the Trump allegations against Obama were true.

She claimed that monitoring (in reference to the alleged wiretap) could be done with microwaves that turn into cameras. She added, “We know this is a fact of modern life” in regards to the charges by President Trump in a recent tweet against former President Barack Obama. Ms. Conway said, however, she is glad that the House Intelligence Committee is investigating the unsubstantiated allegation.

President Trump has not commented on those three tweets since posting them on a Saturday morning over a week ago.

The tweets have sent members of his own party scrambling in an attempt to explain to the media about the unsubstantiated charge.

On CNN's "State of the Union" on Sunday, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), said he is troubled by America's relations with Russia. Sen. McCain cited the removal last summer from the 2016 Republican Party platform a provision that supported the sending of lethal weapons to the Ukraine, calling that provision "not the will of most Republicans." In reference to Donald Trump and his ties to Russia, Sen. McCain said, "There's a lot more shoes to drop from this centipede." He predicted further revelations about the ties to Russia and stated he has "no reason" to believe Trump's allegations.
