President Donald Trump is "very confident he will be proven right" in his wiretap claim against former president Barack Obama, RadarOnline.com has learned.
Newsmax CEO Chris Ruddy revealed he spoke with Trump at length on Saturday in Florida, calling the 70-year-old "pissed" over the controversy.
"I haven't seen him this pissed off in a long time," Ruddy wrote on Newsmax.com. "When I mentioned Obama 'denials' about the wiretaps, he shot back: 'This will be investigated, it will all come out. I will be proven right.'"
On Sunday, Ruddy added that while Trump didn't go into detail regarding his sources, he was "very confident he will be proven right, said the first FISA was rejected, second one approved," Heat Street reports.
When asked if he counseled Trump on how to manage the scandal, Ruddy answered: "No, but he seemed sooooo confident it was true and seemed to know the whole trails of the FISA actions and was recounting them to me."
As Radar readers may know already, in a slew of tweets on Saturday, Trump alleged that Obama ordered to wiretap phones in Trump Tower in the weeks leading up to the 2016 election, providing no evidence to back up his claim at the time.
Later on Sunday, The White House insisted that Congress open investigate into the claim as part of its probe into Russia's meddling in the election, Business Insider reports.
However, FBI Director James Comey opposed Trump's claim over the weekend, asking the Justice Department to reject it. Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper took a similar stance, telling NBC that "there was no such wiretap activity" against Trump or his campaign.
