Long time Fox News senior judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano has been benched.  Fox has taken Napolitano off the air indefinitely due to unverified claims he made with regards to British intelligence wiretapped Trump Tower at the behest of Obama and his administration.

Fox News anchors Shepard Smith and Bret Baier said that the network could not confirm Napolitano’s claims. So now it looks like Napolitano has been thrown under the bus, at least for the time being. Neither Fox News nor Napolitano himself have responded to any inquiries regarding Napolitano’s conspicuous absence from the network coverage on Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch and his confirmation hearing. This is an event that Napolitano normally would have taken a high profile role in.

He has not been seen on the air since Thursday of last week.

President Trump set the media tongues wagging on March 4 with his tweets accusing Obama of wiretapping in Trump Tower during the 2016 election. Napolitano sided with President Trump against the media sharks when he presented a scenario on several programs that backed President Trump’s accusations.

According to a column, Napolitano wrote on FoxNews.com, the former New Jersey Superior Court Judge, citing unnamed sources, said that the British foreign surveillance agency, the Government Communications Headquarters, “most likely” provided Obama with transcripts of Trump’s recorded calls.

Napolitano states –

By bypassing all American intelligence services, Obama would have had access to what he wanted with no Obama administration fingerprints.”

White House press secretary Sean Spicer cited Napolitano’s charge last week and President Trump cited Napolitano as a source again when he was asked about the wiretapping claims at a Friday news conference with German Chancellor Angela Merkel. Of course, the British are denying the claims and President Trump himself is citing “McCarthyism.”

Napolitano stated on air —

Fox News has spoken to intelligence community members who believe that surveillance did occur, that it was done by British intelligence.”


Fox News, however, tossed Napolitano under the bus claiming no such thing took place and forced anchors to retract Napolitano’s statement.

Shepard Smith played Fox News lackey and told viewers on Friday —

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.”

Napolitano defended his comments in a statement read on the Fox News program “MediaBuzz” on Sunday.   Napolitano said via his statement that he “reported what the sources told me, reported it accurately and I do believe the substance of what they told me.”
