Thread: Fox News pulls Judge Napolitano over his Trump wiretap claims

    Default 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.Fox News did not respond to inquiries about Napolitano’s status Monday. Napolitano was conspicuously missing from the network’s coverage of the confirmation hearings on Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch — an event in which he typically would have played a significant role. He has not been on the air since Thursday.
    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. Napolitano was not available for comment.
    On March 4, President Trump first tweeted the accusation that Obama ordered his “‘wires tapped’ in Trump Tower just before the victory.”

    Not the first time Fox has sidelined The Judge, won't be the last. I've always liked the guy, his candor, honesty, and commitment to our community.

    The Judge got screwed, Fox threw him under the bus. Now, let's see whether he'll jump ship and go onto RT.

    You know what's stupid about this? Those of us who've been paying attention have known for years that the British and others spy on Americans on behalf of America and vice versa. I knew that after watching a 2007 PBS documentary.

    I don't quite believe that the US intelligence orgs would outsource their spying of Americans living in the US to British intelligence when they have the apparatus setup in this country to do so.

    Also, why would the president who controls all those orgs have to go through the British govt to do so? This made no sense from the start, why he fell for it in the first place is beyond me.

    Also he royally screwed himself when he kept of saying "sources told Fox news" instead of sources in my private online forum siad blah blah blah to me. I doubt he recovers from this one. He got carried away with the whole Trump thing and now he is probably going to lose his job.

    It all revolves around plausible deniability. Think of it as money laundering but with intelligence.

    It's pretty much a well known fact that to get around pesky domestic spying restrictions, the US spies on people in the UK, and they spy on our citizens.

    Yep, bingo.

    This has been very well known for a while now. It's not even a conspiracy theory, it's proven fact

    Napolitano has known for most of his career that this is a possibility. Fox pays him a lot of money. So he puts up with it. Andrew Napolitano's best work is ahead of him, if he ever gets fired or retires.

    UPDATE –– 10:59 pm ET: A Fox News source tells Mediaite that Judge Napolitano has not been suspended by the network.

    Here is what WSJ is reporting:

    His removal from the air may not be for very long, the person close to the situation said. In fact, it is possible that Mr. Napolitano could return to the network as early as later this week, the person said.

    The judge should start only taking tips from his own sources not those of fox news.

    Although from a business point of view, trump doesn't have any evidence of the wiretapping his phones, people watching fox are mostly in favor of trump, so what's it matter if there is no hard evidence for the wiretapping tweets? It's not like fox is going to lose any viewers or have it hurt their rep.

    The judge and stossel are the only reasons I'll watch fox.

    Indeed. The short term memory of folks is truly astounding at times.

    Guess that is what happens when you let MSM dictate your reality.

    Nap gets too caught up in sensationalism. That keeps him from living up to his potential.

    Then again, that's also why he's achieved the level of success as a TV personality that he has.

    The question not addressed in the OP is whether the judge's assertions are true or if he fell for what would to my eyes be a wholly predictable ploy by his enemies, as well as those of Trump, Fox, and the "right" to chip away at the huge momentum of the current political tide. How could anyone not expect this?

    Was Napolitano set up like a bowling pin?
