President Trump speaks in the White House on Friday

But if you're not going to take the tweets literally and if there's a concern that the president has about other people, other surveillance activities looking at him or his associates, either appropriately or inappropriately, we want to find that out.

But the White House spokesman wouldn't accept that.

White House press secretary Sean Spicer listens to questions from reporters during a news conference at the White House on March 13.

Republican Senator and chairman of the judiciary committee Chuck Grassley is another who is venting his frustration, warning that he will block the Rosenstein appointment unless the Federal Bureau of Investigation answered questions. Spicer meanwhile, insisted the Intelligence Committee's statement issued today is a progress report, not the final word, because "they have yet to go through the information".

Congress has asked FBI Director James Comey for any evidence that a warrant was requested, issued or denied.

Trump tweeted earlier this month that Obama "was tapping my phones in October" and compared the incident to "Nixon/Watergate" and "McCarthyism". It does not say Obama ordered this surveillance, nor does it say Trump's own phones were tapped or that he was under surveillance in any way.

Conway fired back at Cuomo's suggestion that she may have meant to cast doubt on the scale of surveillance, saying, "I'm allowed to talk about things in the news without you questioning anyone's personal integrity".

Trump has said little about his allegations against Obama, largely leaving it to White House aides to explain his inflammatory statements.

"We're going to fight this bad ruling", President Trump said.

In a rare public statement, Britain's GCHQ, Britain's Government Communications Headquarters, the equivalent of the US National Security Agency which monitors overseas electronic communications, said the claims were "nonsense" and should be ignored.

Darroch and other British officials complained directly to White House officials after the episode, Prime Minister Theresa May's office said it had been assured the White House would not repeat the allegations. House Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) similarly told reporters Wednesday, "We don't have any evidence that that took place".

The president said his administration "will be submitting certain things" to congressional committees that are investigating his claim that the Obama administration conducted top-secret surveillance on him.

"The point is, the intelligence committees in their continuing, widening, ongoing investigation of all things Russian Federation, got to the bottom - at least so far - with respect to our intelligence community that - that no such wiretap existed", he said.

But when asked Thursday if lawmakers have evidence to suggest that anyone in the Trump orbit's communications had been collected incidentally, Nunes pointed only to the leak of fired national security adviser Michael Flynn's communications with a Russian ambassador. I read in, I think it was January 20 a New York Times article where they were talking about wiretapping. "And we're in the process of putting it together, and I think it's going to be very demonstrative".

Under existing surveillance law, the president of the United States does not have the power to order Americans surveilled.
