Presidential counselor Kellyanne Conway issued a challenge to FBI Director James Comey to release all information of alleged wiretapping of Trump Tower by the Obama administration.

Earlier Sunday, James Clapper, who was the former administration’s director of national intelligence, said that he wasn’t aware that any such wiretapping took place.

Conway countered that when Clapper denied the existence of Trump campaign surveillance, he later left open the possibility that the wiretapping came from another source.

“If Mr. Comey has something he’d like to say I’m sure we’re all willing to hear it,” Conway told Fox News Channel’s Jeanine Pirro Sunday. “All I saw was a published news report. I didn’t see a statement from him. I don’t know what Mr. Comey knows.”

She challenged Comey after he had asked the Department of Justice to publicly denounce Trump’s claims that such surveillance occurred.

“If he knows, of course he can issue a statement,” Conway said. “We know he’s not shy.”

Pirro argued that no matter what type of surveillance order was issued, had it been under Title III criminal or counter-intelligence, Comey would have been aware of its existence.

“[Comey] knows, and if he’s pushing back, we’ve got a real problem between the head of the FBI and the president,” Pirro said.

Conway countered with media’s reporting double standard.

“We have a double standard here of anonymous sources,” she told Pirro. “The media are so quick to rely upon them for everything … that’s negative or derogatory towards this president. If it’s positive and exonerating they don’t want to hear about it.”

Not everyone is buying James Clapper’s wiretapping denial, considering his past record

Earlier Sunday White House press secretary Sean Spicer asked Congress to look into the previous administration’s possible abuse of investigative powers.
