 Trump stands by wiretapping allegation - White House
| Reuters

WASHINGTON President Donald Trump stands by his allegation that former President Barack Obama ordered Trump Tower to be wiretapped during the 2016 campaign, White House spokesman Sean Spicer said on Thursday.

"He stands by it," Spicer said at a daily briefing. Spicer's comments came after the Republican and Democratic leaders of the Senate Intelligence Committee said they saw no evidence to support Trump's claim.
