I had to read this story a couple times to actually believe what I was reading.
Here’s the short summary: Judge Napolitano, a Fox News fan favorite for his straight-forward truth telling, has been placed on indefinite suspension at Fox News. Why? Because he made the claim that it was British Intelligence who wiretapped the Trump Tower….at Obama’s request.
That would make SO MUCH sense. And the Saudi-owned Fox News doesn’t want that truth to get it, it looks like.
I’ve watched Bill O’Reilly the past week and he keeps making the statement that “the only fact that matters” in the wiretapping scandal is whether or not there was a FISA warrant issued.
That is now becoming VERY interesting in light of the Napolitano suspension.
Is this a diversion tactic by the media? Get everyone to accept the media story that No FISA Warrant = No Wiretapping. Yet, if the British Intelligence agencies did the wiretap at Obama’s request, of course there would be no FISA warrant!
Are the dots all starting to connect? Is this the evidence Trump has claimed to have? Stay tuned!
Here are more details, from The LA Times:
Fox News senior judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano is being kept off the air indefinitely amid the controversy over his unverified claims that British intelligence wiretapped Trump Tower at the behest of former President Obama.
Fox News did not respond to inquiries about Napolitano’s status Monday. Napolitano was conspicuously missing from the network’s coverage of the confirmation hearings on Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch — an event in which he typically would have played a significant role. He has not been on the air since Thursday.
People familiar with the situation who could speak only on the condition of anonymity said Napolitano is not expected to be on Fox News Channel any time in the near future. Napolitano was not available for comment.
On March 4, President Trump first tweeted the accusation that Obama ordered his “‘wires tapped’ in Trump Tower just before the victory.”
“Nothing found,” Trump tweeted. “This is McCarthyism!”
The tweet has been widely discredited, but last week, Napolitano heightened the controversy — and caused a major embarrassment for Fox News — when he presented a scenario on several programs that backed the accusation.
The former New Jersey Superior Court judge, citing unnamed sources, said that the British foreign surveillance agency, the Government Communications Headquarters, “most likely” provided Obama with transcripts of Trump’s recorded calls.
“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.
