Fox News Suspends Judge Napolitano Indefinitely Over His British Spy Claims

5

On March 14th, Judge Napolitano made a startling accusation on Fox & Friends, accusing President Obama of using the UK to spy on Donald Trump. For those comments, he has been suspended indefinitely though he is sticking by his story.

”Three intelligence sources have informed Fox News that President Obama went outside the chain of command” to conduct the surveillance on Trump, he said.

The judge didn’t explain if these are retired or currently employed sources or if they have any direct knowledge.

Obama “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,” Judge Napolitano explained. The former president went to the British intelligence services version of the NSA for the work – the GCHQ.

The GCHQ shares much of the NSA’s vast electronic database of signals intercepts and they would be able to gain access to records of Trump’s phone calls the judge said. It would also mean there are no fingerprints left behind, he explained.

The President’s press secretary Sean Spicer read Napolitano’s report at a press conference.

By Friday, Fox daytime anchor Shepard Smith disputed Napolitano’s claim.

“Fox News cannot confirm Judge Napolitano’s commentary,” Smith said. “Fox News knows of no evidence of any kind that the now-president of the United States was surveilled at any time, any way. Full stop.”

The accusation was shot down Monday at the hearings with FBI Director Comey and NSA Director Admiral Rogers.

National Security Agency Director Mike Rogers denied that U.S. intelligence had asked the British to conduct surveillance, and said that it would be against the law.

The Los Angeles Times reported Monday that Napolitano has not made any appearances on Fox since last Thursday.

Citing an anonymous source, the paper said Napolitano “is not expected to be on Fox News Channel any time in the near future.”

The Sentinel hopes the talented judge will soon return. If they can keep Geraldo after he drew a strategic map showing the location of our troops, they can keep the judge for his statement.

  1. To get around US privacy laws GCHQ actually does the tapping of all our emails, phone calls, texts, etc.. using US NSA, CIA, and FBI technology then stores it in UTAH. This way our 3 digit overlords skirt federal law. Which in fact make/ made it easy for Obama the IslamoMarxist to skirt the law right along with them.

    The SIGINT program has been so highly classified that none including FBI Dir., Intel committee(s), nor even POTUS can talk about it. Even at the price of POTUS looking untruthful.

    Welcome to the DEEP STATE! They really don’t like being outed.

  2. The Snowden revelations detailed how this is the case. In fact a similar story was produced at Fox just after 9-11. It was Snowden who revealed that these agencies work in tandem to spy on each other.

    There’s something odd going in that Larry Johnson’s website has been down since yesterday. At first it appeared all content was removed and now it is non-existent.

    • He was blamed for Judge Napolitano’s report and has been under fire. His credibility was damaged. Maybe he closed up shop.

  3. This past Sunday CNN’S Brian Stelter interviewed a former CIA officer name Larry Johnson ,Larry Johnson, confirmed the story that Judge Andrew Napolitano told on air about British intelligence passing along surveillance data involving the Trump administration. here is some of what he said………………
    “I had known about the fact that the British, through ghcq were information back channel, this was not at the behest of Barack Obama, let’s be clear about that. But it was done with the full knowledge of people like John Brennan and Jake clapper. Two people I flow within the intelligence community in January, they were very concerned about this because they saw it as an unfair meddling in the politics, but it was a way to get around the issue of American intelligence agencies not collecting” it was a pretty interesting interview!!!!!!!!
