conspiracy-loving talk show host mark levin. >> how many of trump's people were eveavesdropped on? how many had their conversations intercepted? recorded? transcribed? because this, ladies and gentlemen, is the big scandal. >> reporter: a spokesman for president obama quickly called the allegations false. one of obama's former national security aides, ben rhodes, responded to trump. no president can order a wiretap. those restrictions were put in place to protect citizens from people like you. it is true that under president obama, the fbi did open an investigation into whether anyone in the trump campaign was working with the russians. if there had been an fbi wiretap about russian spies, it would have been approved by a special panel of three federal judges, not the white house. this morning, he's tweeting again, at 6:32. is it true the dnc would not allow the fbi access to check server or other equipment after learning it was hacked. the president
