Trump Claims Obama Tapped His Phones But Provides No Evidence
On March 4 2017, Trump tweeted:
How low has President Obama gone to tapp my phones during the very sacred election process. This is Nixon/Watergate. Bad (or sick) guy!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 4, 2017
Trump “offered no evidence to support his claims“. Press Secretary Sean Spicer released a statement also without any evidence but saying “the White House is asking Congress to investigate ‘whether executive branch investigative powers were abused in 2016.'”
