Former Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s former campaign manager, Robby Mook, confirmed Tuesday that, during the course of the 2016 election, intelligence officials informed the campaign of wiretaps involving then-GOP nominee Donald Trump.
Mook made this admission during a discussion on Fox News‘ “Fox & Friends” regarding recent accusations by President Donald Trump that the administration of former President Barack Obama purposefully and illegally wiretapped him and his associates last year.
“There was a wiretap of Russian agents,” he stated. “Those Russian agents were communicating with Trump staff. That is why they were picked up.”
