Trump wants Congress to probe leaks of classified info

The White House says President Trump wants Congress to investigate the leaking of classified information, as well as unsubstantiated allegations that former president Barack Obama tapped his phone.

Spokesman Sean Spicer says he has spoken to Trump about the issue and the president has indicated he would like to see Congress broaden the scope of ongoing investigations into Russia’s influence over the US election to include both elements.

The White House has already called for Congress to follow up on Trump’s explosive and unsupported allegation, made over the weekend, that former president Obama ordered a wiretap of his phone during last year’s campaign.
