This was stated on Saturday in an official statement, the press Secretary of Barack Obama, Kevin Lewis, reports UKRINFORM.
“The cardinal rule of the Obama administration was the fact that no official White house never interfered with any investigation under the supervision of the Ministry of justice. As part of the practice, neither President Obama nor any White house official, never gave orders to conduct surveillance of any citizen of the United States. Other claims are simply false”, – quotes the official representative of the Obama The Washington Post.
A similar opinion was expressed Saturday on Twitter is also Deputy national security Advisor to Obama, Ben Rhodes. “No President can order wiretaps. These restrictions were introduced to protect citizens from people like you” – appealed Rhodes post of the present head of the White house.
Meanwhile, the Central, CNN leads the rating of a senior official of the Ministry of justice under the Obama administration, which had direct relevance to the investigation. He also denied conducting any investigation of trump and listening to his phone.
“It was not. It’s a lie, a lie”,- said the representative of the previous administration.
He clearly said that Obama could not order such actions. The official noted that for carrying out such actions, investigators must obtain permission of the court, but it was not.
