ALPINE — New Jersey resident Kellyanne Conway, a senior advisor to President Donald Trump, said the wire-tapping Trump alleges President Obama ordered for Trump Tower may be just one part of a much larger problem.

In an interview with the Bergen Record, Conway said phone lines are not the only way to "surveil," a person's activity: "You can surveil someone through their phones, certainly through their television sets — any number of ways," she said. That can include, she said, "microwaves that turn into cameras."

The story points out that Conway did not provide any evidence that this was done to President Trump, and that the White House has not said whether it will provide any evidence to the House Intelligence Committee investigating the claims.

She later told CNN her quotes were taken out of context and said she was "answering a question about surveillance techniques generally." She also declined to provide any evidence of surviellance to the news network.

"I'm not Inspector Gadget," Conway said, according to CNN. "I don't believe people are using the microwave to spy on the Trump campaign. However, I'm not in the job of having evidence; that's what investigations are for."
