Fox News pulls Napolitano after wiretap claims

Fox News has reportedly pulled Andrew Napolitano from the air indefinitely after he claimed that a British intelligence agency wiretapped Trump Tower.

Napolitano, a Fox News analyst, is not scheduled to appear on the network in the near future, the Los Angeles Times reported, according to people familiar with the situation.

Last week, Napolitano made the claim that the Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ) was spying on Trump at former President Obama’s behest.

White House press secretary Sean Spicer then quoted Napolitano’s remarks while defending the president’s claim earlier this month that the former president had Trump Tower under surveillance before the presidential election.

“Judge Andrew Napolitano made the following statement, quote, ‘Three intelligence sources have informed Fox News that President Obama went outside the chain of command,’ ” Spicer said during a daily press briefing last week.

  1. Of course FOX News is like any of the other main stream media organization. And probably paid off by George Soros who lost tons of money backing Killary Clinton. And of course, FOX doesn’t want to piss anyone off who is connected with The NSA either.

  2. This is a deep swamp issue. Do not go near this issue if you know what’s good for you. Like Icarus, the Judge flew close to the sun and paid the price. Thanks for standing up and telling the people the truth and SCREW the Fox (in the hen house) News.

  3. This is total Cow Dung from those sniveling cowards who run Fox News.To bad they can’t be replaced.What they did to the Judge is unconscionable.Judge Napolitano was the most
    highly thought person to appear on Fox.I see the S.Smith is still on the air,he needs to follow Meghan Kelly.

    • Randy Rose, I think FOX would have to pay him back if that were the case. I love Judge Napolitano. He’s a great guy. But wasn’t this whole thing just a opinion?

  4. Fox is on a downward spiral and will continue to lose viewers when their competition figures it out and uses more of a balanced format. PMSNBC is already doing it.

  5. I thought FOX was for the US Citizen–not for the organization of bad reporters and news people. I guess I can stop listening to FOX now -and that means there is no news people who is in the US citizens corner. The Judge was telling us what he has been told for our information.

  6. If you ask an intelligence agency if it was doing something underhanded or illegal, they will not say “yep we did it”. If you ask a government if they were doing something underhanded or illegal, they will not say “yep, we did it” either. For someone to report that is the case, is not reporting news. It is propaganda and or misdirection. The Judge says he had three (3) separate sources, him I will believe.
    Drain the swamp.
