In a string of tweets posted early Saturday morning, President Trump let loose a barrage of accusations at his predecessor. He alleged that former President Obama had his “wires tapped” in Trump Tower before Election Day last year, accusing Obama of “McCarthyism” and being a “bad (or sick) guy.”
Trump, who is under significant scrutiny for his administration’s contacts with Russia before he took office, offered no evidence to support his claims Saturday morning.
Trump’s press secretary, Sean Spicer, released a statement Sunday — which you can read in full at the bottom of this post — saying the White House is asking Congress to investigate “whether executive branch investigative powers were abused in 2016.”
