Sean Spicer Says President Trump Wasn't Specifically Accusing Obama of Wiretapping

President Barack Obama speaks with soon-to-be President Donald Trump during the inauguration at the U.S. Capitol in Washington Friday Jan 20 2017

That's about the age where you try to use word play and trickery to convince your parents that you never gave a specific time that you would be coming home as you merely asked to go outside and play but didn't explicitly state when you'd be returning.

However, Spicer then says this: "Such a great country that allows you to be here".

Chauhan also asked whether Spicer was involved in "the Russian Federation stuff".

Spicer's comments Monday coincided with a deadline set by congressional committees for the Justice Department to turn over any evidence that Trump was surveilled by the Obama administration. Alexander asked. "Is it phony or real when he says President Obama was wiretapping?"

Trump held his first cabinet meeting on Monday, with negotiations over the repeal and replacement of Obama's Affordable Care Act still dominating the political agenda and a budget proposal expected to be unveiled on Thursday.

"The president has one of two choices, either retract or provide the information that the American people deserve", McCain said in an interview on CNN's State of the Union.

"He does believe it", Spicer said, ending the volley. "Don't tell me what he probably meant because he also works for this administration that has done all of these things", she said, referencing the president signing executive orders to ban entry into the country from a number of Muslim countries.

President Donald Trump tweeted about being wiretapped.

Spicer accused the media of ignoring proof of surveillance allegations that he said had been reported during the election. Going back to the CBO, Spicer said "that's not a question of our credibility, it's a question of theirs".

"That would be a great way to do it", Spicer replied.

She also added that Trump's election as the US President has instilled in her great fear for the future of the county. If we didn't know any better, it would just look like a black and white photo of people laughing.

Fox News White House correspondent John Roberts took to Twitter to suggest Trump donate his salary either to the Fisher House Foundation, which builds homes near military and Veterans' Affairs hospitals for families to stay in while their loved ones are receiving care, or the TAPS Organization, which aides those grieving the death of a loved one who served in the US military. Then, she fired off questions asking, "have you committed treason too, like the president?" and, "What can you tell me about Russia, Mr. Secretary?"
