Today, the White House press briefing was held off-camera… again. There is a little audio, though, courtesy of a PBS Newshour livestream.
Above, you can hear Sean Spicer being asked about Kellyanne Conway saying that Donald Trump has access to intelligence regarding his allegations that Barack Obama wiretapped him that normal, non-president people do not have.
When asked what he knows about specific evidence that Obama really did wiretap Trump, the press secretary said, “I just… I think the point Kellyanne was making at the time is the president, because he’s president, gets access to NSC and other intelligence documents. I don’t know — I didn’t — I haven’t seen the exact transcripts so I can’t… but 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, whether she was referring to the exact nature of this charge or whether, generally speaking, he is given information.”
The reporter had wondered why Trump would call for an investigation if he already had the answers, but that answer was not immediately made clear.
