US intelligence 'incidentally' picked up communications from Trump's team

Although, this doesn't back up claims that the Obama administration was behind the 'wiretapping'. To discuss this, Share Radio's Ed Bowsher was joined by Chris Gilson, Managing Editor of USAPP, the US Centre's daily blog on US politics at the London School of Economics.
