Fox News has reportedly suspended senior judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano over statements he made claiming President Barack Obama asked British intelligence officials to wiretap Trump Tower in an effort to spy on Donald Trump.

 

Napolitano was curiously absent from Fox’s coverage of the Supreme Court confirmation hearing of Neil Gorsuch on Monday, with sources telling the LA Times, and Highlight Hollywood has confirmed that Napolitano is not expected to appear on the network any time in the near future. He has not appeared on Fox News since last Thursday.

Napolitano claimed both in a column for FoxNews.com and on the air that an unnamed source had told him that Britain’s Government Communications Headquarter (GCHQ) performed surveillance on Trump at Obama’s request, backing up controversial statements made by Trump himself. However, Fox News anchor Shephard Smith was forced to walk back Napolitano’s statements on Friday, stating “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.”

 

Earlier on Monday, FBI Director James Comey confirmed during a House Intelligence Committee hearing that the FBI does not have any evidence to support Trump’s claim that he was  the subject of surveillance by the Obama administration.

 

Fox News did not immediately respond to Highlight Hollywood’s request for comment.
