Explosive comments from a Hillary Clinton campaign official suggest that there was indeed wiretapping going on at Trump Tower.
Robby Mook, Clinton’s former campaign manager, acknowledged during a Fox & Friends appearance, that there was a wiretap of Russian officials in contact with associates of President Trump, and that surveillance may have been conducted on Trump computers as well.
“The facts are Trump aides were caught talking to Russian agents and … those conversations were captured because the intelligence community regularly taps the phone lines of those Russian agents,” Mook said.
When host Peter Doocy interjected and asked him to repeat the wiretap comment, Mook said, “There was a wiretap of Russian agents and that those Russian agents were communicating with Trump staff.”

It’s clear that Mook is naturally putting the emphasis on the allegation that Trump associates were communicating with Russian officials. In doing so he’s inadvertently admitted that the wiretaps existed!
So how did he know the wiretaps were real?
“That is what the intelligence community has told us,” Mook said.
Thanks @marthamaccallum for letting me weigh in on Trump-Russia ties. POTUS aides were caught on taps b/c they were talking w Russians.

Wow. Mook’s comments directly contradict those of James Clapper, former Director of National Intelligence who claimed no such action was carried out against President Trump, either as a candidate or against his campaign.
“Absolutely, I can deny it,” Clapper said.
The Clinton campaign admission also obliterates FBI Director James Comey’s assertion that the President’s accusations were false.
Mr. Trump “falsely insinuates that the FBI broke the law,” he complained.
Comey tried, but to no avail, to get the Justice Department to refute Trump’s claims that he was wiretapped.
A tweet from Hillary Clinton herself seems to suggest they were privy to information on the surveillance of Trump Tower:

Ainsley Earhardt said, ‘If she is tweeting that, she is in on it, she knows. How is she getting this information?’
.@RobbyMook just said "Trump officials were caught on tape talking to Russian…" What tape, Robby?

With the Clinton camp now admitting the wiretaps were real, the media, Democrats, and other Obama associates will have to shift the narrative to try and convince the American people that the former president had nothing to do with the wiretaps.
That’s when things will get truly interesting. Once the American people know they’ve been lied to about something (as Mook’s comments show), we won’t rest until the truth gets out – whether the media wants to be a part of getting at the truth or not is entirely up to them.
