Judge Napolitano From Fox News Promotes Unsubstantiated Claim Of Obama Wiretapping Trump Phones, Removed From Fox News Programming

 In Fake News   Last Updated: July 29, 2017

Andrew Napolitano, a judicial analyst for Fox News, claims that President Trump’s accusation that President Obama tapped Trump’s phones was true.

Napolitano said “Three intelligence sources have informed Fox News that President Obama went outside the chain of command. He didn’t use the NSA, he didn’t use the CIA, he didn’t use the FBI and he didn’t use the Department of Justice.  He used GCHQ [the British Intelligence Agency]“.

Napolitano provided no evidence for these claims, and a spokesperson for GCHQ stated “No part of this story is true”.  Trumps claims have also been discredited by the House Intelligence Committee, the FBI, and the Justice Department.

Napolitano has been removed from Fox News programming indefinitely.
