The White House is demanding an investigation into the President's allegation that former President Obama wiretapped phones at Trump Tower.

FOX's Rachel Sutherland reports from Washington:

Former CIA Director Leon Panetta told CBS "Face the Nation" President Trump is trying to pivot the Russia story:

(Panetta) "He's trying to divert attention. He's trying to obfuscate, trying to cover up."

House Oversight Committee Republican Chair Jason Chaffetz is taking the President's claim seriously:

(Chaffetz) "This stuff does happen and it's not necessarily done the legal lawful way."

The "New York Times" reports FBI Director James Comey wants the Justice Department to issue a rebuttal of President Trump's accusation.
