Turns out, Kellyanne Conway doesn't actually have evidence to support President Donald Trump's accusations that former President Barack Obama tapped the phone lines at Trump Tower during the 2016 election.
"I don't have any evidence and I'm very happy that the House Intelligence Committee (is) investigating," Conway told ABC's "Good Morning America" on Monday, then repeated the point on CNN's "New Day" shortly after.
"That’s what investigations are for," she told Chris Cuomo in the interview (above). "I have said many, many times throughout the week that the president is pleased that the House and Senate intelligence committees have agreed that this should be part of the investigation that already exists about Russia and the campaign, an investigation that apparently has gone nowhere so far."
And contrary to an interview with the Bergen Record, she doesn't think microwaves were involved in the alleged surveillance, either.
While discussing her latest hit quote about "microwaves that turn into cameras," the White House advisor clarified, "I'm not Inspector Gadget. I don't believe people are using the microwave to spy on the Trump campaign."
On Sunday, Conway told the Record's Peter Kelly that "there are many ways to surveil each other," and detailed that surveillance is possible through phones, televisions sets and even microwaves. "We know this is a fact of modern life," she said.
Conway also told "Good Morning America" Monday that she was misquoted. "I wasn't making a suggestion about Trump Tower," she said.
She vented on Twitter Monday morning to clarify her comments to the Record and wrote that the Record's headline, "Kellyanne Conway alludes to even wider surveillance of Trump campaign," was simply written wrong.
1/2: On wiretap claims, I have said many times that we are pleased the House/Senate Intel Committees are investigating & will comment after— Kellyanne Conway (@KellyannePolls) March 13, 2017
2/2: response to Bergen Record was about surveillance articles in news & techniques generally, not about campaign. Headline just wrong.— Kellyanne Conway (@KellyannePolls) March 13, 2017
Still, people had a field day with her comments. Take a look at some reactions below.

Conway seems to think Inspector Gadget was a documentary. https://t.co/aqJ9FDzvAP— Robin Dawes (@DawesRobin) March 13, 2017
Kellyanne is such a liar that I am now half convinced she IS Inspector Gadget.— annika b killjoy (@noirbettie) March 13, 2017
A Twitter account was even created in Conway's honor named "Kellyanne's Microwave." Its bio reads: "I'm more than just a microwave. You wouldn't believe the things I've seen."
