A day after an early morning tweetstorm accusing Barack Obama of ordering American intelligence to wiretap the phones at Trump Tower that even took close advisers by surprise, the Trump administration officially called for a Congressional investigation into Trump's theory.

Shortly before 9 a.m. this morning, Press Secretary Sean Spicer put out the following statement:

Reports concerning potentially politically motivated investigations immediately ahead of the 2016 election are very troubling. President Donald J. Trump is requesting that as part of their investigation into Russian activity, the congressional intelligence committees exercise their oversight authority to determine whether executive branch investigative powers were abused in 2016. Neither the White House nor the President will comment further until such oversight is conducted.

And while Spicer promised the White House would provide no further statements on the matter, Spicer then tweeted an endorsement of Trump's theory by former Attorney General Michael Mukasey. Furthermore, White House spokesperson Sarah Huckabee Sanders took America on a journey on an appearance on ABC's This Week, in which she denied that the president got his wire tapping theory from Breitbart and was asked by an exasperated Martha Raddatz why she kept asking for an inquiry "if" the charge was true after Trump had definitively stated it was.

Despite what Huckabee Sanders told Martha Raddatz about how Trump came to believe Obama had tapped the phones at Trump Tower, Jake Tapper tweeted that White House sources told him Trump got his ideas from Breitbart and Mark Levin, and not intelligence sources:

In addition, Politico's Josh Dawsey tweeted that Trump "is angry and not changing his mind" according to one source close to the president, which bodes really well.

In other Sunday show news, former Obama Director of National Intelligence James Clapper went on Meet The Press this morning and told Chuck Todd definitively that there was no FISA court order authorizing wire tapping at Trump Tower:

There are members of Congress, however, who feel that Clapper perjured himself during 2013 testimony to the legislative body, when he told them "No sir" and "not wittingly" to questions about whether the NSA was collecting data on Americans. His answers were contradicted by the information leaked by Edward Snowden, which showed that the government had in fact collected domestic phone and internet data from millions of Americans.

However, despite the conflicting ideas of where Trump got his theory from, House Intelligence Committee chairman Representative Devin Nunes announced today that the committee would be looking into the claims. Nunes announced that the committee would "make inquiries into whether the government was conducting surveillance activities on any political party's campaign officials or surrogates," according to the L.A. Times.
