Obama adviser Kevin Lewis Throws Loretta Lynch under the “Wiretapping” bus

trump-meets-obama-win-macnamie-getty-420x315A spokesperson for former President Barack Obama says President Trump’s assertion that Obama unlawfully wiretapped Trump Tower during the 2016 presidential campaign is “simply false.”

“A cardinal rule of the Obama Administration was that no White House official ever interfered with any independent investigation led by the Department of Justice,” said Obama spokesman Kevin Lewis in a statement Saturday afternoon. 16364418667_b4ab79ff7c_b“As part of that practice, neither President Obama nor any White House official ever ordered surveillance on any U.S. citizen. Any suggestion otherwise is simply false.”

The statement doesn’t deny that wiretapping may have taken place, just that the Obama White House wasn’t behind it.

In a series of tweets early Saturday morning, Trump said wiretaps were place in Trump Tower in October, just before his Nov. 8 election victory over Hillary Clinton.
