US President Barack Obama speaks on the Keystone XL pipeline flanked by Secretary of State John Kerry, and Vice President Joe Biden

Larry Johnson outlined a complicated series of events on CNN's "Reliable Sources" on Sunday that he says led Judge Andrew Napolitano, Fox News' top judicial analyst, to make his explosive claim.

After President Trump's wiretapping claims and the likelihood that proof of former President Obama's involvement wouldn't be forthcoming, Napolitano seemingly added fuel to the fire by claiming that unnamed sources told him that the British foreign surveillance agency "most likely" served as an untraceable intermediary between Obama and then-candidate Trump's recorded calls.

A person with knowledge of the situation who spoke on condition of anonymity because it was a personnel matter said Mr. Napolitano has been benched and won't be appearing on the air in the near future.

Last week, Napolitano made the claims about the Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ) spying on Trump at former President Barack ObamaBarack ObamaFox News pulls Napolitano after his Trump wiretap claims 9/11 victims suing Saudi Arabia: report THE MEMO: Five takeaways from Comey's big day MORE's behest.

White House press secretary Sean Spicer cited Napolitano's comments in a press briefing Thursday.

A blogger and former Central Intelligence Agency analyst says he was a source for an uncorroborated claim made on Fox News about supposed spying at Trump Tower - but he says he didn't mean to be.

SC suggests to sort out differences and issues in Ram temple case
Vinay Katiyar, one of the leaders of the Ram Janmbhoomi movement of the 90s, welcomed the CJI's suggestion. The court instead asked him to sort out the issue through negotiations agreed upon by all petitioners.


GCHQ publicly denied the assertion, describing it as "utterly ridiculous", while Downing Street said it had secured an assurance that the allegation would not be repeated.

GCHQ rejected Napolitano's claims that it helped surveil Trump for Obama in 2016.

But that did not stop Trump from bringing them up again.

Trump has played golf at least 10 times since becoming president in late January, despite the fact that he teed off several times at his immediate predecessor Obama for indulging that very same hobby while in office. "That was a statement made by a very talented lawyer on Fox".

Asked if President Trump making "baseless" claims against British security services damaged the close relationship between the two nations, Admiral Rogers said: "I think it clearly frustrates a key ally of ours".

"Fox News knows of no evidence of any kind that the now-President of the United States was surveilled at any time, in any way", Mr. Smith said. "Full stop", Shepard said on air.
