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.
