President Donald Trump’s former presidential campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, appeared on Fox News’ Justice with Judge Jeanine late Friday to make the explosive charge that officials from the Obama administration had secretly listened to conversations between then-Senator Jeff Sessions and Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak, in the senator’s office.
“They did spend time listening to conversations between then-Sneator Jeff Session and the ambassador to Russia while he was in his U.S. Senate office,” Lewandowski told Judge Jeanine Pirro. “If that were to take place, which supposedly did take place, what other conversations did they listen in on from the American public?”
A visibly stunned Pirro said she was unaware of any such activity from the Obama administration, but Lewandowski pressed on.
“They were monitoring [who] a United States Senator was having a private conversation with, is what I understand, and if that is the case it is very concerning,” said Lewandowski. “Is it possible that that previous administration was listening to the conversations that took place in Trump Tower from their political opponents. If that is the case, and what Donald Trump alludes to is accurate, then that’s very, very disturbing for our future going forward.”
On Twitter, Friday, the president suggested that official of the Obama administration had secretly wiretapped the Trump Tower.
Neither Trump nor Lewandowski have offered any evidence for their explosive claims.
