‘Wiretap Covers a Lot of Different Things’: Trump Says We’ll Know More About His Claims in ‘Two Weeks’

Ahead of the airing pf President Donald Trump’s first interview since making his explosive claims via Twitter that former President Barack Obama wiretapped Trump Tower’s phones prior to the election, Fox News released a couple of excerpts to the press.

In one portion of the interview with Tucker Carlson, Trump commented on the recent release of two pages from his 2005 tax return, stating that it is an “illegal thing” and he doesn’t know how a reporter got it.

Trump was also asked about the wiretap claims, and he gave a somewhat cryptic answer in response.

“But wiretap covers a lot of different things,” the president said. “I think you’re going to find some very interesting items coming to the forefront over the next two weeks.”

Earlier today, the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee came out and said there was no evidence that Obama had wiretapped Trump Tower. The Department of Justice has asked for additional time to provide Congress with any potential proof on Trump’s assertion.
