President Trump made several unsubstantiated claims that then-President Obama ordered surveillance at Trump Tower in New York during the election.
Turns out, Trump has not spoken with FBI Director James Comey to back up the claims.
Comey has already rejected the allegation and wanted the Justice Department to reveal that no such surveillance occurred under his watch.
At a media briefing Tuesday, White House spokesman Sean Spicer said the president wants Congress to investigate the allegations.
“The House and Senate intelligence committee have the staff and the capabilities and the processes in place to look at this in a way that’s objective, and that’s where it should be done,” Spicer said.
Why not talk to the FBI director?
Spicer responded, “It’s a no-win situation” because it could be perceived as the president interfering with the investigation.
