White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer conducted an off-camera briefing on Monday to address the claim as well as the whirlwind media fallout.

There, Spicer justified Trump’s claim.

“There’s no question something happened,” he asserted. But there was still a question of whether that “something” was surveillance, a wiretap, or whatever else.

FBI Director James B. Comey urged the Justice Department to reject the claim, as any other would implicate it in wrongdoing.

At another point in the press conference, Spicer was asked whether or not Trump meant to purposefully implicate the FBI’s involvement in any potential abuse of executive power:

“I’m just going to let the tweet speak for itself,” Spicer said, saying that he needed further clarification in order to answer.

Spicer also tweeted out the following statement on Sunday:

Though a spokesman for Obama denied the unverified claim, the Trump administration called for an investigation into the matter.
