Trump Sticks With Breitbart News, Rejects FBI’s Assertion That Wiretapping Claim Is False

Donald Trump made some serious accusations about former President Obama early Saturday morning, claiming that he had wiretapped into Trump tower before the election. FBI Director James Comey denied the allegations and urged the Justice Department this weekend to publicly reject President Trump’s assertion , according to the New York Times.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders appeared on ABC’s “Good Morning America” on Monday morning where she was asked if Trump accepts Comey’s denial that former President Barack Obama wiretapped Trump Tower before the election.

“No, I don’t think he does,” Sanders said.

She said Trump “wants the truth to come out to the American people and he is asking that it be done through the House Intelligence Committee and that that be the process that we go through.”

In a series of tweets this Saturday Trump accused Obama of wiretapping Trump tower prior to the election.

“How low has President Obama gone to tapp my phones during the very sacred election process,” the president tweeted. “This is Nixon/Watergate. Bad (or sick) guy!”

Trump serious claims about Obama have sparked his team to respond.

Kellyanne Conway called for Comey to share any information he might have on Trump’s allegations.

“If Mr. Comey has something he’d like to say I’m sure we’re all willing to hear it,” Conway said on Fox News. “All I saw was a published news report. I didn’t see a statement from him. I don’t know what Mr. Comey knows.

“If he knows, of course he can issue a statement,” Conway said. “We know he’s not shy.”

Also White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer went on Twitter where he stated:

The president is “requesting that as part of their investigation into Russian activity, the congressional intelligence committees exercise their oversight authority to determine whether executive branch investigation powers were abused in 2016.”
