Over the weekend, Donald Trump went on a tweet-storm in defense of the allegations that members of his administration had been communicating with Russia. In a round of tweets on Saturday morning, Trump accused former President Obama of wiretapping Trump Tower, despite not providing any evidence to back up the allegations.

Spicer and Conway

After Donald Trump made the aforementioned wiretapping allegation against Barack Obama, his administration scrambled to defend him due to the fact that there was no evidence presented.

Supporters of the president, as well as several right-wing news outlets, appeared to push the conspiracy of an illegal wiretapping at Trump Tower. During an interview on Fox News on Sunday night, Presidential Counsel Kellyanne Conway couldn't confirm Trump's claim, but did hint that he has access to intelligence that could have informed him of the wiretapping. As reported by Mediaite on March 6, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer was pressed on Conway's comments.

"I just, I think the point Kellyanne was making at the time is the president, he’s president, gets access to NSC and other intelligence documents," Sean Spicer said while speaking to reporters during an off-camera "gaggle" at the White House.

"I don't know," Spicer went on to say," while noting, "I didn't...I haven't seen the exact transcripts so I can't." After continuing to be asked about to clarify Kellyanne Conway's statement, Spicer said, "I also haven’t talked to Kellyanne about it, so I can’t specifically respond to you in terms of what she was referring to." The remarks were captured via audio by the PBS Newshour livestream on Monday afternoon.

This isn't the first time that Kellyanne Conway and Sean Spicer have not been on the same page. Last month, Conway incorrectly gave information about the resignation of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn stepping down from his position.

Conway's remarks were at odds with what Spicer and Donald Trump were pushing out, leading to reported behind the scenes conflict. Just a few days after making the comments, Conway was pulled from on-camera interviews on most cable news channels.
