The FBI says the wiretapping never happened, and Trump's furor over it forced them to reveal they're still investigating his ties to Russia.
Pressed by media to admit Trump's wiretapping claims are bogus, Sean Spicer held on to two shreds of credibility.
First, he suggested that Trump didn't mean wiretapping (which requires a judge's approval), but rather any form of surveillance.
Second, he insisted media cover remarks by Congressman Devin Nunes, the former dairy farmer now in charge of the House Intelligence Comittee. Nunes typically plays his cards close to his chest, and under scrutiny from media has offered equivocal statements that contradict colleagues.
