Trump Advisor: No, I Don’t Believe Our Campaign Headquarters Are Bugged

Paul Manafort, advisor to presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump, said Suday that he didn’t believe the real estate mogul’s campaign headquarters were bugged.

The New York Times reported in a story published Friday, citing three unnamed people “briefed on the conversations” that campaign staffers were beginning to feel paranoid and felt as if the headquarters might be bugged.

Manafort was asked about it on ABC News’ “This Week.”

“I don’t know who said that,” Manafort said. “Certainly there are people probably would like to, because there’s a lot of good work going on there and we’ve been able to develop a campaign that is cohesive, that’s working together, and in a record time thanks to a great candidate who has got a vision and connected to the American people, put the campaign in a position to win the presidency.”

Manafort then explicitly said that he didn’t believe it and reitereated that he didn’t know who said it.
