Kellyanne Conway said she was “not Inspector Gadget” or “in the job of having evidence” when quizzed on television about wiretapping claims.
In a bid to make light of her suggestion that Barack Obama could have spied on Donald Trump using a microwave, she referenced the 1980s cartoon character who had thousands of high-tech gadgets installed in his body.
“I’m not Inspector Gadget,” she told CNN. “I don’t believe people are using their microwave to spy on the Trump Campaign. However, I am not in the job of having evidence. That’s what investigations are for.”

Actual tweet from Twitler:
How low has President Obama gone to tapp my phones during the very sacred election process. This is Nixon/Watergate. Bad (or sick) guy!
From BUSINESS INSIDER:
In several TV appearances Monday morning, White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders defended President Donald Trump’s claim that former President Barack Obama wiretapped his phones during the 2016 election.

Maybe it’s Rudy Giuliani’s prostate problems that have led to so many leaks coming from the FBI. From THE HUFFINGTON POST:
Rudy Giuliani said Friday that he knew the FBI planned to review more emails tied to Hillary Clinton before a public announcement about the investigation last week, confirming that the agency leaked information to Donald Trump’s presidential campaign.
I was wondering why the FBI felt compelled to change their seal.

From CBS NEWS:
The Republican chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee on Monday said that FBI Director James Comey’s disclosure Friday about newly discovered emails related to the private email servers probe is “not fair to Congress, the American people or Secretary [Hillary] Clinton.”
In a letter to Comey Monday, Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa said that Comey’s letter to GOP committee chairmen on Friday was “vague” and he listed a number of questions that he wants answered by Friday.

From VANITY FAIR:
The media frenzy ignited by James Comey’s decision, less than two weeks before the election, to disclose that the F.B.I. uncovered a fresh trove of e-mails that may pertain to Hillary Clinton’s e-mail scandal continues to reverberate throughout Washington. While a number of high-profile Republicans, including G.O.P. nominee Donald Trump, have praised Comey, the F.B.I. director’s October Surprise has incited withering criticism from both sides of the aisle. No one, however, has attacked Comey with more force than former pugilist Harry Reid. In a fiery letter on Sunday, the outgoing Nevada senator argued that Comey’s “partisan actions” may have violated federal law and accused the Republican official of withholding “explosive information” linking Trump and his top advisers to the Russian government.

It’s official. Lou Dobbs has lost his fucking mind. When he recently went in for a tonsillectomy, did the anesthesiologist turn off the oxygen by mistake? Did the surgeon miss and nip a bit of Lou’s brain instead of his tonsils? Whatever the case, I will repeat–Lou Dobbs has lost his fucking mind.
NEW YORK (CNN) — Lunacy among our public figures in this country certainly didn’t subside over the weeks that I’ve been away from the broadcast. I’ve been no less than astounded by the incongruity, the contradiction, the specious and silly public statements by public and political figures over something like a flag pin worn on one’s lapel.
Like many Americans, I began wearing a flag pin after September 11. I do so out of respect for those killed in the terrorist attacks, and in recognition of this country’s war on radical Islamist terror. It turns out that some journalists and some presidential candidates are uncomfortable and even upset about flags on lapels.
