Fox drops analyst who said UK might have helped spy on Trump

Network source says Andrew Napolitano ditched after claiming UK spies might have aided Obama in alleged wiretapping

Fox News has dropped a legal analyst who claimed British intelligence might have helped spy on Donald Trump during his bid to become US president.

Andrew Napolitano had been pulled from the channel, a source at Fox said. The network made no immediate comment on Monday.

Napolitano said last week on Fox & Friends he had three intelligence sources who said Obama went “outside the chain of command” to watch Trump.

Britain dismissed the report as “nonsense” after the White House press secretary, Sean Spicer, quoted it in a briefing, part of the administration’s continued defence of Trump’s unproven contention that Obama wiretapped him at Trump Tower during the 2016 presidential campaign.

The director of the FBI, James Comey, testifying before Congress on Monday, became the latest official to state that no evidence had been found to support Trump’s charge.

The US president, when asked about the incident, said that “all we did was quote a certain very talented legal mind who was the one responsible for saying that on television. I didn’t make an opinion on it. You shouldn’t be talking to me. You should be talking to Fox.”

    Under UKUSA agreement the alphabetical daisy chainers said they would not spy on their own people. Haha. They spy on each other and exchange the data. It been like that for decades. Fox are fools and how come they believe the insidious Poms? Sorry they are the Poms! Please get someone to do a little research. Also the MI6 has run the USA since the 1930s, see details of Stephenson running the USA spy rings in WWII.

    Sheuer and Napolitano would make a good team and probably could humble Fox off of its hen house perch. Who would Shaffer talk to on Fox now ? There is an opening for a internet news outlet for serious ex-military or ex-government employees to hang all the underwear out in public. Of the nearly 50 % who did not vote, and the others who’s party loyalty is thread thin, a decent and relatively cheap channel could draw in the millions. If a third party is to emerge, it needs weight.
