President Donald Trump has not spoken to the FBI about his claim that his predecessor wiretapped his phones. reports that Mr.Trump on Saturday accused Barack Obama of ordering surveillance at Trump Tower in New York during the election, but has offered no evidence.

FBI Director James Comey has reportedly rejected the allegation - one report said he was "incredulous".
But White House spokesman Sean Spicer said on Tuesday the president has yet to speak to him about it.
The "smartest way" to address this is for Congress to extend its current investigations to include this issue, he said.

Mr.Comey has asked the US justice department (DOJ) to publicly refute the president's claim, according to the New York Times and NBC.
He is said to have asked for this because the allegation implies the FBI broke the law. The DOJ has not commented.
