BREAKING: White House calls on Congress to determine if executive branch investigative powers were abused in 2016


Press secretary Sean Spicer on Sunday sent out a four-part tweet stating the investigations into Russia’s attempts to influence the 2016 election should include President Trump’s claims that the Obama administration abused its powers to investigate such matters.

Reading between the lines, the White House wants Congress to look into Trump’s wiretapping claims concerning Obama and Trump Tower.

Spicer’s four-part tweet read:

“Reports concerning potentially politically motivated investigations immediately ahead of the 2016 election are very troubling. President Trump is requesting that as part of their investigation into Russian activity, the congressional intelligence committees exercise their oversight authority to determine whether executive branch investigative powers were abused in 2016. Neither the White House nor the President will comment further until such oversight is conducted.”
