Trump asks Congress to probe alleged illicit campaign investigations

Trump asks Congress to probe alleged illicit campaign investigations: Washington (AFP) - President Donald Trump is asking Congress to probe "potentially politically motivated investigations" during the 2016 campaign, the White House said Sunday.

The announcement came one day after Trump took to Twitter to accuse his predecessor Barack Obama of tapping his phones ahead of the November election, without providing evidence of the explosive charge.

An Obama spokesman has denied Trump's accusation as "simply false."

In his statement, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer referred to unspecified reports of "potentially politically motivated investigations immediately ahead of the 2016 election" as "very troubling."
