Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager Robby Mook helped bolster President Donald Trump’s accusation of wiretapping.
And apparently he knows more than a private citizen ought to about what was found.
Mook appeared on “Fox & Friends” on Tuesday and admitted that he had known about wiretaps.
“The facts are that Trump aides were caught talking to Russian agents and those conversations were captured because the intelligence community regularly taps the phone lines of those Russian agents,” he said.
“There was a wiretap of Russian agents and that those Russian agents were communicating with Trump staff,” Mook added. “That’s what the intelligence community has told us. That’s what’s been reported very widely. Those are the facts.”
Why was the intelligence community informing one campaign of surveillance captured on its opponent?
The “Fox & Friends” hosts pointed to a tweet from Hillary Clinton on Oct. 31 that linked to a column from Slate that attempted to connect a server in Trump Tower to Russia.
The hosts wondered why Clinton might link to that article and who might have leaked the information to Slate.

Many on social media were stunned that Mook essentially admitted that the Clinton campaign knew about the surveillance.

Dear Mainstream Media, Do your job and ask the Clinton campaign if any of them had dealings with Russia. @RobbyMook has stories to tell

That is the question. Perhaps an investigation into that is warranted.
