LA Times: FOX NEWS PULLS JUDGE NAPOLITANO OVER HIS TRUMP WIRETAP CLAIMS

“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.

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.

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.
