LEGAL/OBAMA/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “President Donald Trump’s top spokesman said Monday there was no doubt the Obama administration conducted some type of surveillance of the Republican’s presidential campaign.
‘There’s no question that something happened. The question is it, is it surveillance, is it a wiretap or whatever?’ Spicer said during an off-camera briefing at the White House. ‘There has been enough reporting that strongly suggesting something occurred.’
Spicer, who declined to identify any specific piece of evidence to support Trump’s claim, said the President asked Congress to investigate based on those unnamed reports.”
