Fox News pulls Judge Napolitano over his Trump wiretap claims

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.

People familiar with the situation who could speak only on the condition of anonymity said Napolitano is not expected to be on Fox News Channel any time in the near future.

Trump also was asked by a German reporter whether there were tweets that he regrets, and he responded, "Very seldom".

The GCHQ called Napolitano's claims "utterly ridiculous" and insisted they "should be ignored".

While the LA Times did not receive a statement from Fox about Napolitano's status, anonymous sources claim that it will be a while before we see the judge again. "And so you shouldn't be talking to me, you should be talking to Fox".

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

"Fox News knows of no evidence of any kind that the now President of the United States was surveilled at any time, in any way, full stop", Smith said. 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.
