Kellyanne Conway refutes surveillance quotes in New Jersey paper

Following her interview with Bergen County, NJ outlet 'The Record' on Sunday, Kellyanne Conway is now saying her comments on former President Barack Obama surveilling Donald Trump during his campaign were misconstrued.

Conway insinuated during the lengthy interview at her Alpine, NJ home that the Obama administration's surveillance of Trump's campaign was even further reaching than what Trump had indicated, according to USA Today.

"There are many ways to surveil each other...You can surveil someone through their phones, certainly through their television sets — any number of different ways," Conway said.

The presidential adviser took to Twitter on Monday to say those quotes were misused, and to issue a "#FakeNewsAlert."

Last week President Trump tweeted that Obama had his phones in Trump Tower tapped during the 2016 election, calling him a "bad (or sick!) guy."

Neither Trump, his administration nor the intelligence community have verified the president's claims of wire tapping.
