If you’re a fan of Judge Andrew Napolitano’s commentary, you might be hard pressed to find him anytime soon on Fox News. When Talking Points Memo, asked for further details from Fox News, they refused to comment. Napolitano hasn’t been seen on the right-wing channel that paints itself as a news organization since Thursday.
That’s an important day to remember since that’s when Press Secretary Sean Spicer cited the Judge as a source from his personal website on the 16th of March and story featured on “Fox & Friends.” On Friday during a press conference with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Mr. Trump remarked that “nothing” had been said about Judge Napolitano by the Administration even with Thursday’s evidence to the contrary.
The Judge’s article reads more like a John Grisham best-seller than an actual piece than any reputable news organization would allow to be put out.
Sources have told me that the British foreign surveillance service, the Government Communications Headquarters, known as GCHQ, most likely provided Obama with transcripts of Trump’s calls. The NSA has given GCHQ full 24/7 access to its computers, so GCHQ — a foreign intelligence agency that, like the NSA, operates outside our constitutional norms — has the digital versions of all electronic communications made in America in 2016, including Trump’s. So by bypassing all American intelligence services, Obama would have had access to what he wanted with no Obama administration fingerprints.
Fox News’s website put up GCHQ’s response to Judge Napolitano, while Napolitano’s website did not. In fact, Napolitano was disavowed by Fox News anchors. We’ll see how long a Fox News contributor who “clearly frustrated an ally of ours” stays off the air.
