Trump, critic of Obama's golfing, regularly hits the links

21 Марта, 2017, 13:05 | Author: Valerie Burke

Former Judge and Fox News Channel legal analyst Andrew Napolitano is out.

The LA Times reported Napolitano has been off the air since Thursday and is not expected to return any time in the near future. Napolitano was not available for comment. And Fox's own news anchors disavowed Napolitano's claims.

"On March 4, President Donald Trump first tweeted the accusation that Obama ordered his "'wires tapped' in Trump Tower just before the victory".

Last week, Napolitano made the claims about the Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ) spying on Trump at former President Barack ObamaBarack ObamaFox News pulls Napolitano after his Trump wiretap claims 9/11 victims suing Saudi Arabia: report THE MEMO: Five takeaways from Comey's big day MORE's behest. White House press secretary Sean Spicer said Manafort, who led Trump's successful 2016 bid for the Republican presidential nomination "played a very limited role for a very limited amount of time".

"By bypassing all American intelligence services, Obama would have had access to what he wanted with no Obama administration fingerprints", Napolitano wrote in a column on FoxNews.com.

During a press briefing, Spicer said some of those who are under investigation for their connections to Russian Federation, which is thought to have interfered in the 2016 election to attempt to swing it in Trump's favor, didn't have prominent roles on the Trump campaign - including one of Trump's former campaign managers.

In response, the British spy agency called Napolitano's claims "utterly ridiculous", saying they "should be ignored".

But Napolitano said on one program that "Fox News has spoken to intelligence community members who believe that surveillance did occur, that it was done by British intelligence".

A Fox News source confirmed to CNNMoney that Napolitano has been taken off the air.

Fox News host Shepard Smith also denied Friday that his network has information validating Napolitano's remarks, saying the network knows of "no evidence of any kind that the now-President of the United States was surveilled at any time in any way".

It's still not clear who all of Napolitano's sources were, and Fox News has declined CNN's requests to elaborate.

FBI Director James Comey testifies on Capitol Hill in Washington, Monday, March 20, 2017, before the House Intelligence Committee hearing on allegations of Russian interference in the 2016 US presidential election.
