The former Assistant Defense Secretary who has been on the hot seat for her admission that Trump was being spied on by the Obama administration made an appearance on CNBC to backpedal her comments. The problem is she probably got herself in more trouble by speaking up to clear the air. What she should have done is lawyer up and kept her mouth shut. If she was getting advice, whoever gave her that advice was 100% wrong in having her speak one more sentence about this.
Remember when she appeared on MSNBC on March 2nd you couldn’t shut her up about the surveilling of Trump and Trump staff. She’s now saying she only commented on what was in the press. Well, the tweet about Obama surveillance of Trump was on March 4th!
