A spokesman for former US President Barack Obama commented on the accusations of the current President Donald Trump that his phone before the presidential election of 2016 was tapped.
"Neither President Obama nor anyone in the White House never gave orders to do this", - he said.
Lewis said that the Obama administration's rule was a complete non-interference in the work of the Ministry of Justice.
Also, Obama's former deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes said on Twitter that the president can not give orders about tapping someone's phone.
Earlier US President Donald Trump has accused the former head of state Barack Obama that he tapped his phone in October 2016, shortly before the presidential election. This the 45th president wrote in his Twitter.
"Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my "wires tapped" in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found," wrote Trump.
