President Trump has not used his authority to compel U.S. spy agencies to turn over transcripts of all intercepted communication that mention him or his associates in dealings with Russia, the White House confirmed Friday.

The information could answer questions about alleged collusion with Russia or whether the Obama administration spied on Mr. Trump and his team, as Mr. Trump has charged.

The president’s handling of the vast resources of the U.S. intelligence agencies have been questioned as his administration struggles to overcome allegations of Mr. Trump’s ties to Russian meddling in the election.

When asked by a reporter about the president’s ability to request the transcripts, White House press secretary Sean Spicer flatly said, “No.”
