Conservative Review Editor-in-Chief Mark Levin continued to support Donald Trump this week, joining Fox & Friends to discuss the president's claim that the Obama administration wiretapped Trump Tower during the 2016 election.

"This is not about President Trump's tweeting; this is about the Obama administration spying," he said in the interview. "The issue isn't whether the Obama administration spied on the Trump campaign or transition of surrogates; the issue is the extent of it."

"Donald Trump is the victim. His campaign is the victim. His transition team is the victim. His surrogates are the victim."

Later, Levin played hardball with former president Barack Obama, saying: "These are police state tactics. I will tell you this, Obama's more involved than he says; it's his executive branch."

As Radar previously reported, in a series of tweets this weekend, Trump accused Obama of orchestrating wiretaps on the phones in Trump Tower in the weeks leading up to the 2016 election.

Trump didn't provide any evidence alongside his claims, but Newsmax CEO Chris Ruddy said the new prez is "very confident" he will be proven right.

On Sunday, The White House insisted that Congress open an investigation into the claim as part of its probe into Russia's meddling in the election.

But 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.
