White House counselor Kellyanne Conway said President Trump may have access to information backing up his claim that President Obama asked for a court order to tap phones in Trump Tower.
Conway said on Fox News Monday that, as president, Trump has access to information that others don't, and that might be a reason why he decided to tweet accusations at Obama for wiretaps at Trump Tower. The president and his administration have not provided any evidence for those claims, which have been denied by Obama.
"He's the president of the United States, he has information and intelligence that the rest of us do not," she said on Fox News.
She also pointed to media reports as justification for looking into whether the Obama administration asked for a FISA court order to spy on Trump Tower.
"You have a number of credible media outlets reporting there was politically-motivated activity all during the campaign and suggesting there's more there," she said.
Conway later said it's important to get to the bottom of Trump's accusations in order to get the truth.
"People deserve to know, so why not include in the existing investigations into Russia whether or not this actually happened?" Conway asked.
