Trump wants investigation into wiretaps
U-S President Donald Trump is now demanding that Congress investigate whether former President Barack Obama abused executive powers in connection with the 2016 election.
Trump's latest salvo follows a Twitter-based attack on the former president yesterday accusing Obama of ordering a wiretap on Trump Towers during last year's election campaign.
Trump and the White House have provided no evidence to back up the claims.
A spokesman for Obama called the assertion “simply false.”
