White House press secretary Sean Spicer refused to say whether President Donald Trump would apologize if his claims of Trump Tower being subjected to electronic eavesdropping are untrue.

ABC's Jonathan Karl asked the question during Friday's White House press conference (11:00 into the video).

"Let's not get ahead of ourselves. I think it is important to see where that goes. I don't want to prejudge their work at this time," Spicer said.

When pressed further, Spicer interjected, "You are asking, 'what if there is evidence?' I'm not going to get into a series of hypotheticals prejudging the outcome of a report or investigation that hasn't occurred yet. I think once that is done, we will respond appropriately."

Last Saturday, Trump posted a series of tweets accusing the Obama administration of bugging Trump Tower when Trump was still a candidate for president. The claim has set off a firestorm of activity from both sides of the political fence, with Trump supporters demanding that an investigation be undertaken and his critics saying he's merely trying to distract from other matters.
