Vice President Mike Pence failed to answer questions about whether or not he believed President Trump’s wiretapping claims on Wednesday.

According to The Hill, when the Vice President was asked during an interview with CNN affiliate WEWS about Trump’s assertions, Pence stated,

“What I can say is that the president and our administration are very confident that the congressional committees in the House and Senate that are examining issues surrounding the last election, the run-up to the last election, will do that in a thorough and equitable way.”

He continued, “they’ll look at those issues, they’ll look at other issues that have been raised.”

As he continued to dodge the question, Pence also added that the Trump administration is focusing on working on what’s most important to the American public.

“Rest assured our focus is right where the American people are focused and that’s on bringing more jobs here to Ohio — creating a better healthcare system built on consumer choice.”

Trump publicly accused former President Barack Obama of tapping the phones at Trump Tower prior to the November 2016 election in a series of early morning tweets on Saturday morning. However, Trump cited no evidence and has yet to provide any. While he has claimed that he has the evidence that this wiretapping occurred, he has also called on Congress to find it.
