    Washington, DC - The US Congress is vowing to investigate Donald Trump’s accusation that his predecessor Barack Obama tapped his phones during the election.

    A large number of conservatives believe it is one of many efforts by Obama and his supporters to sabotage Trump’s administration.

    Liberal critics, though, say the allegations are a way to shift media attention from the possible Trump campaign ties to Russian officials.
