DHS Sec. John Kelly Weighs in on Trump Wiretapping Tweets: He ‘Must Have His Reasons’

Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly appeared on CNN late this afternoon and was asked by Wolf Blitzer about President Trump‘s tweets claiming Barack Obama wiretapped Trump Tower.

He said he doesn’t know much about it yet, but if the president said that, then “he’s got his reasons” to say so and must have “convincing evidence” that it took place.

Blitzer brought up CNN’s report that FBI Director James Comey was “incredulous” over those tweets. Kelly did not directly weigh in but did say he’s been the subject of sources “that were dead wrong” recently.

Kelly said that everyone should want to get to the truth here and reiterated “the president must have his reasons.”
