Bret Baier on Trump’s Conflicting Tweets on FISA Debate: ‘It’s Kind of a Mess’ (Mediaite)

Donald Trump contradicted himself when he tweeted about the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) today, and Bret Baier says this could create a bit of a complication for the midday vote on the policy’s reauthorization.

Trump went against the GOP and his administration’s talking points today when he bashed FISA and suggested that it allowed investigators to “badly surveil and abuse” his 2016 campaign over the Fusion GPS dossier. Almost two hours later, Trump completely changed course by expressing support for the surveillance program.

This reversal has already factored into FISA debates on the House floor, and when Baier was asked about this, he said “it’s kind of a mess from the administration’s point of view.”
