Fox News suspends Andrew Napolitano for Obama wiretapping claims

"You shouldn't be talking to me, you should be talking to Fox News", Trump said.

In a conversation on Saturday with anchor Fredericka Whitfield, CNN media critic Brian Stelter called out Donald Trump's fact-free "Fox News presidency", in which the president is basing policy moves on unsubstantiated rumors and commentary he hears on the network and accepts as fact.

"We love the judge, we love him here at Fox, but the Fox News division was never able to back up those claims and was never reported on this show", Baier said.

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

"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", Shepard Smith told viewers Friday. That drew complaints from the British government, and statement from their spy agency denying the claim.

Spicer quoted Napolitano's report, "three intelligence sources informed Fox News President Obama went outside the chain of command, he didn't use the NSA, CIA, FBI and he didn't use the department of justice".

"That was a statement made by a very talented lawyer on Fox [News]".

"Would MSNBC pull one of their contributors for making an unsupported claim?" the source added.

"We said nothing", Trump said when asked about the former judge's claims. Members of the press laughed. Merkel said that "immigration has to be worked on", but that refugees needed "opportunities to shape their own lives where they are".
