Monica Crowley: The President Knew What He Was Talking About with Obama Wiretap Tweet

‘Obviously the president knows that something that we don’t’

CROWLEY: "Don't hold your breath on that one. I've long said that with this president, there's almost always a method to his madness. Almost. Not always but almost always. At a time when he put out that tweet that he and Trump Tower were wiretapped by the Obama Administration and by surrogates, all hell broke loose. I kept warning my liberal friends. Do not jump all over this. Obviously the president knows that something that we don't. Now it is clear according to this report that at least Paul Manafort who by the way not only worked at Trump Tower but lived at Trump Tower was under surveillance by the government. Let's not get too far ahead of ourselves because we don't know what the surveillance turned up. We don't know whether Manafort's conversations with the president were in fact intercepted as part of the surveillance. And we don't know what Robert Mueller's end game might be. We don't want to get too far ahead of ourselves but it does look like in fact the president knew what he was talking about and was correct when he put out that tweet."
