The official statement made by Barack's spokesman can be read, in full, below.
Democrats accused Trump of making the wiretapping claim to try to distract from controversy about possible links to Russian Federation.

The allegations, presented by Levin without any evidence, were soon picked up by Breitbart. In this regard, for over 2 years the highest levels of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) have been secretly investigating the "harvesting" of highly confidential information including financial records of the chief justice of the Supreme Court, other justices, over 156 judges, prominent businessmen like Donald Trump, and public activists like me.
