Obama spokesperson says Trump's claim on Trump Tower wiretap is false

Posted March 06, 2017

He accused President Obama of having had his phones tapped at Trump Tower, said that Arnold Schwarzenegger was sacked as host of The Apprentice and said the Russian Ambassador to the United States had been a regular visitor to the Obama White House.

"I can deny it", Clapper, weeks removed from serving in the federal government, said on NBC's "Meet the Press" on Sunday when asked whether he could confirm or deny a court order allowing for eavesdropping at Trump Tower in NY. Mark Warner of Virginia, the top Democrat on the committee, who said the committee will obtain all of the information it needs to get to the bottom of the topic of Russian interference. He did not provide evidence to support those claims.

Trump is asking Congress to determine whether the Obama administration abused its investigative powers during the presidential campaign, White House press secretary Sean Spicer said in a statement Sunday morning. "Neither @barackobama nor any WH official under Obama has ever ordered surveillance on any U.S. Citizen", he said in a tweet on Saturday.

But Trump offered no supporting evidence, a spokesman for Obama denied the claim as "simply false" and lawmakers in both parties asked for proof.

Collins comments followed a week of continuing questions about contacts between members of Trump's campaign staff and Russian officials. "It is false. Wrong", the former official said.

Stelter would then note that based on how early the tweets were sent out, he highly doubted that Trump had received an intel briefing at that time.

"As part of that practice, neither President Obama nor any White House official ever ordered surveillance on any USA citizen".
