Last quote by Sean Spicer on Wiretapping

I know that she's supposed to make comments to a host in a few minutes to minimize this, but it is interesting because she was the one who went out and said she quote 'had nothing to do with this' on a program a few weeks ago and now…. I think it's not for me to decide who should testify or how they should do it, but I do think that there is a sharp contrast between a few weeks ago when she was very public in saying she 'didn't have any clue what Chairman Nunes was talking about' and yet now we are finding out that she's trying to figure out some friendly way of discussing this.feedback

All quotes by Sean Spicer on Wiretapping

Why was a name that should have been protected by law from being put out into the public domain, put out there. What were the motives behind that? What else do we need to know? Who was behind that kind of unmasking?feedback

No. We started a hearing, it is still ongoing. There's a lot of areas that still need to be covered. There's a lot of information that still needs to be discussed. Following this testimony it's clear that nothing has changed. Who was being surveilled? Why were they being surveilled? Why were they being quote unmasked?feedback

We are still at the beginning phase of a look as to what kind of surveillance took place and why. I think there's continuing to be a very, very literal interpretation of his tweet, which is whether or not there was wiretapping. The president understands that you don't literally wiretap people the same way you did in the '70s and '80s with wires and things in the top of the phone. There's no reason to believe he doesn't at this time.feedback

As far as wiretapping, I guess, by this past administration, at least we have something in common, perhaps.feedback

I don't think we regret anything. We literally listed a litany of media reports that were in the public domain.feedback

He's able to get it and there's no American fingerprints on it. Three intelligence sources have informed Fox News that President Obama went outside the chain of command - he didn't use the NSA, he didn't use the CIA, he didn't use the FBI and he didn't use the Department of Justice - he used GCHQ.feedback

There's a lot of wiretapping being talked about. I think you're going to find some very interesting items coming to the forefront over the next two weeks.feedback

He stands by (his tweet) but again you're mischaracterizing what happened today.feedback

They're not findings. There's a statement out today they have not begun this. Two days ago the Department of Justice asked for an additional week. The statement clearly says at this time that they don't believe that.feedback

I think there's no question that the Obama administration, that there were actions about surveillance and other activities that occurred in the 2016 election.feedback

I think he's extremely confident. I think there is significant reporting about surveillance techniques that have existed throughout the 2016 election. I think recognizing that he doesn't really think that President Obama went up and tapped his phone personally, I think. But I think there is no question that the Obama administration, that there were actions about surveillance and other activities that occurred in the 2016 election. I think that has been cleaned up. It was made in jest, so I think we can put that to rest.feedback

I'm just going to say the president has tweeted about this. He's pretty clear he believes there was surveillance conducted during the 2016 election. I think there's pretty sound evidence that the microwave is not a sound way of surveilling someone.feedback

He doesn't really think that president went up and tapped his phones personally.feedback

The president was very clear in his tweet that it was 'wiretapping'.That spans a whole host of surveillance types of options. I think that there have been numerous reports from a variety of outlets over the last couple of months that seem to indicate that there has been different types of surveillance that occurred during the 2016 election.feedback

There is significant reporting about surveillance techniques that have existed throughout the 2016 election. I'll leave it to them to issue their report, but I think he feels very confident that what will ultimately come of this will vindicate him. The microwave is not a sound way of surveilling someone, and I think that has been cleaned up. It was made in jest, so I think we can put that to rest. I would just say that the president has tweeted about this. He's pretty clear that he believes that there was surveillance that was conducted during the 2016 election.feedback

The president used the word 'wiretaps' in quotes to mean, broadly, surveillance and other activities.feedback

If you look at the president's tweet, he said very clearly, quote, wire tapping' – in quotes. There's been substantial discussion in several reports. . . . There's been reports in the New York Times and the BBC and other outlets about other aspects of surveillance that have occurred. The president was very clear in his tweet that it was, you know, wiretapping' – that spans a whole host of surveillance types of options.feedback

The president used the word wiretap in quotes to mean broadly surveillance and other activities.feedback

I think if you look at the president's tweet, he said very clearly, quote, wiretapping,' end quote. There's been reports in the New York Times, in the BBC and other outlets about other aspects of surveillance that have occurred. The president was very clear in his tweet that it was, you know, wire tapping.feedback

If you look at the president's tweet, he said very clearly, quote, wire tapping' – in quotes. There's been substantial discussion in several reports. … There's been reports in the New York Times and the BBC and other outlets about other aspects of surveillance that have occurred. The president was very clear in his tweet that it was, you know, wire tapping' – that spans a whole host of surveillance types of options.feedback

He said that he wasn't aware of anything. I take him at his word that he wasn't aware, but that doesn't mean that it didn't exist.feedback

That's probably a level above my pay grade. But as I've mentioned, I think the president believes that the appropriate place for this to be adjudicated is for the House and Senate intelligence committees who have the clearances, the staff, the processes, to go through this, look at it and report back. I think that's what we need to find out. There's obviously a lot of concern. There is no reason to believe there is any type of investigation with respect to the Department of Justice.feedback

The President's tweets speak for themselves. What he wants to do is ensure the House and Senate intelligence committees look into this matter to make sure the American people fully understand what may or may not have happened during the 2016 election.feedback

I don't think you would ever just blanketly say, I'm ready to accept these outcomes.feedback

It could be FISA, it could be surveillance […] I think [Trump] has made it clear that there's continued reports that's been out there. I'm not going to continue to – I think the president has made it clear yesterday that he wants Congress to go in and look at this.feedback

No. Absolutely not. I think the smartest, the most deliberative way to address this situation is to ask the House and Senate intelligence committees, who are already in the process of looking into this, to look into this and other leaks of classified information that are troubling to our nation's national security.feedback

It's not a question of new proof or less proof or whatever, it's about bringing in Congress to get to the bottom of this.feedback

I'm just going to let the tweet speak for itself. I think the president speaks very candidly. I think that there's no question that something happened. The question is, is it surveillance, is it a wiretap or whatever? But there's been enough reporting that strongly suggests that something occurred. I can't specifically respond to you in terms of what she was referring to, whether she was referring to the exact nature of this charge or whether generally speaking he is given information.feedback

There's been a malalignment for so many months and yet not a shred of single truth has actually come that shows any evidence has existed except anonymous source after anonymous source after anonymous source.feedback

Reports concerning potentially politically motivated investigations immediately ahead of the 2016 election are very troubling. President Trump is requesting that as part of their investigation into Russian activity, the congressional intelligence committees exercise their oversight authority to determine whether executive branch investigative powers were abused in 2016.feedback
