Mr. Trump last weekend accused Mr. Obama of electronically eavesdropping on him shortly before the November election. He did so without providing any evidence, and the White House called on Congress to investigate the claim.
The House Intelligence Committee agreed to do so and asked the White House to provide any evidence of the allegations by Monday. But speaking on CNN, John McCain, said Mr. Trump could very easily clear up the matter.
Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my "wires tapped" in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!

“I have no reason to believe that the charge is true, but I also believe that the President of the United States could clear this up in a minute,” Mr. McCain said.
“All he has to do is pick up the phone, call the director of the CIA, director of national intelligence and say, ‘OK, what happened’.”
