The White House's official Twitter account sent out a message Monday highlighting comments by FBI Director James Comey, saying the remarks showed former President Obama and his staff may have known the FBI was listening in on former national security adviser Michael Flynn's calls with Russian officials.
"FBI Director Comey refuses to deny he briefed President Obama on calls made by Michael Flynn to Russia," the tweet posted to the official @POTUS account read.
The tweet included a video from Monday's hearing on Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election of Rep.

Though it's unclear exactly what the purpose of the tweet is, it appears to be accusing the former president of being responsible for leaking information on the phone calls to the press, whether intentionally or unintentionally, if a staff member was behind the leaks.
Trump often prefers to tweet more inflammatory things from his personal account, but @POTUS posted a series of tweets about today's House Intelligence Committee hearing featuring testimony by Comey.
At the hearing, Comey and National Security Agency Director Michael Rogers acknowledged a variety of other people at least had access to the information, including many outside the office of the president.
