WASHINGTON, March 5 (Xinhua) -- U.S. President Donald Trump on Sunday demanded Congress investigate the "potentially politically motivated" wiretapping of him ordered by his predecessor Barack Obama during the 2016 presidential race.

The White House said in a statement that reports concerning such politically motivated investigations "are very troubling."

"President Donald J. Trump is requesting that as part of their investigation into Russian activity, the congressional intelligence committees exercise their oversight authority to determine whether executive branch investigative powers were abused in 2016," the statement said.

It added that neither the White House nor the president will comment further until such oversight is conducted.

On Saturday, Trump openly claimed Obama had his "wires tapped" in Trump Tower in New York before the 2016 Election Day in November.

"Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my 'wires tapped' in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!" Trump tweeted in a series of five tweets on Saturday morning.

Trump also compared the alleged wiretapping by Obama to the "Watergate" scandal, which brought down former Republican President Richard Nixon after it was exposed that he ordered wiretapping of the Democratic Party in the 1970s.

Trump did not detail how he got the information, nor provide any proof to support his accusation against Obama.

However, Obama immediately refuted Trump's accusation as "simply false."

"A cardinal rule of the Obama Administration was that no White House official ever interfered with any independent investigation led by the Department of Justice," Obama's spokesman Kevin Lewis said in a statement on Saturday.

"As part of that practice, neither President Obama nor any White House official ever ordered surveillance on any U.S. citizen. Any suggestion otherwise is simply false," he said.

Trump's "wiretapping" accusation came after days of media reports about the contacts between some members of his campaign team and Russian Ambassador to the U.S. Sergey Kislyak.

U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions said Thursday he will recuse himself from any current or future investigations into Russia's possible link with Trump's presidential campaign, after admitting he met with Kislyak twice last year but didn't reveal it at the Senate hearings for his confirmation.

There have been suggestions that contacts between Trump campaign team and Russia were picked up by intelligence agencies as part of routine surveillance of the Russians.

Trump and his aides have denied there were any improper contacts. But the media reports about the phone talks between Trump's former national security advisor Michael Flynn with Kislyak during the transition period already led to Flynn's resignation last month.

Several congressional committees are currently investigating Trump team's contacts with Russia, which was accused of interfering in the 2016 U.S. presidential race to help Trump through hacking activities. Russia has strongly denied such accusation.

ISTANBUL, Sept. 14 (Xinhua) -- Amid criticism against the Turkish government for not forcibly opposing an upcoming independence referendum by the Iraqi Kurds Nike Hyperadapt 1.0 Pas Cher , many fear the Kurdish bid may lead to Turkey's break-up in the long run.

"This referendum is a first step that will set the stage for Turkey's disintegration," Haldun Solmazturk, a retired general with the Turkish military Nike Hyperadapt Blanche Pas Cher , told Xinhua.

Some world powers are known to have plans since the fall of the Ottoman Empire following World War I to create a Greater Kurdistan that would extend to several countries in the region, while the emergence of a Kurdish state is widely perceived as an existential threat to Turkey with a Kurdish population of nearly 20 million.

Turkey would suffer the most from the Greater Kurdistan project, maintained Solmazturk Nike Hyperadapt Noir Pas Cher , who currently chairs the Incek debates at the Ankara-based 21st Century Turkey Institute.

The Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) is scheduled to vote on independence on Sept. 25, despite opposition by the Iraqi central government and some neighboring countries including Turkey and Iran.

The Iraqi Kurds are expected to vote in favor of secession by a large majority, although some Kurdish parties are against the move.

"This referendum is not a development that would work in Turkey's favor www.hyperadaptpascher.fr ," Hasan Koni, a professor of public international law, told Xinhua.

"This process would lead in the longer run to the establishment of the Greater Kurdistan nike hyperadapt pas cher ," observed Koni who teaches at Istanbul's Kultur University.

The referendum result itself will not mean an automatic declaration of independence as voters are simply being asked about their views on independence from Iraq.

A "yes" vote will give the KRG the green light to declare independence when circumstances are deemed suitable in the future.

Top Turkish government officials have repeatedly voiced opposition to the referendum that it would lead to further instability in the turmoil-hit region.

Ankara has not, however, signaled that it would take such punitive measures as closing its border.
