White House press secretary Sean Spicer then quoted Napolitano's remarks while defending the president's claims earlier this month that the former president had wiretapped Trump Tower before the election. The claim originated from a discredited conspiracy theorist on Kremlin-backed news network, RT.

"Obama would not have needed a warrant to authorize surveillance on Trump", Napolitano wrote in a column for Fox News last week.

Both his claims about GCHQ spying on Trump at Obama's bidding and the initial claim that Obama in any way had Trump's "wires tapped" are completely unfounded, but Napolitano forged ahead with this theory anyway, citing anonymous sources.
In a statement read on the Fox News program "MediaBuzz" on Sunday, Napolitano defended his comments.
The claim brought a rare public denial from GCHQ which described the suggestion as "utterly ridiculous". The former envoy further censured the NY billionaire for his " famous reluctance to admit mistakes ".
