WASHINGTON — Senior White House adviser Kellyanne Conway is suggesting that alleged government surveillance of Donald Trump during his campaign may have gone beyond the president’s accusation that former President Barack Obama had his phones tapped.
Conway tells New Jersey’s Bergen County Record “there are many ways to surveil each other.” She says “you can surveil someone through their phones, certainly through their television sets — any number of ways.” Conway didn’t offer any evidence for the remark.
It follows Trump’s claim that Obama had Trump’s “wires tapped” at Trump Tower before the election. Trump hasn’t provided evidence and Obama has denied the charge.
Vice President Mike Pence used a private email account to conduct public business as governor of Indiana, his office said in a statement Thursday.
The private email account was first reported by the Indianapolis Star, which said Pence used it at times to discuss sensitive matters and homeland security issues. The account was hacked last summer, the newspaper added.
During the 2016 presidential campaign, Pence criticized Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server while she was secretary of state, saying it endangered national security.
North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un obliterated five of his most senior aides with anti-aircraft guns after they allegedly turned in false reports on security matters, CBS News said Monday.
The deranged despot allegedly went ballistic when he learned about the falsified reports — and immediately ordered the executions of the five officials from North Korea’s beleaguered state security department, CBS reported.
The department’s minister of state security, Kim Won Hong, was removed from power in mid-January, but has not been executed by Jong Un — yet. Hong had allegedly been involved in some type of corruption and abuse of power.
The FBI shot down a recent request from the White House to publicly blast media reports about the alleged communications between President Trump’s associates and the Russians during the 2016 campaign, a report says.
Multiple US officials who’ve been briefed on the matter told CNN that White House officials had been asking the bureau to say the stories were wrong, and that there had been no contacts between the two parties whatsoever — but they refused.
The communications between the Trump administration and the FBI are said to be a direct violation of government procedures, which bar contact during ongoing investigations.
