Judge Andrew Napolitano is back!
The embattled Fox News analyst and pundit has been on a forced hiatus in recent days due to a shocking report he delivered on Fox News a couple of weeks ago.
This is what Napolitano said on Fox and Friends in mid-March:
Three intelligence sources have informed Fox News that President Obama went outside the chain of command. He didn’t use the NSA, he didn’t use the CIA, he didn’t use the FBI, and he didn’t use the Department of Justice… He used GCHQ. What the heck is GCHQ? That’s the initials for the British spying agency. They have 24/7 access to the NSA database. So by simply having two people go to them and say ‘President Obama needs transcripts of conversations involving Candidate Trump, conversations involving President-Elect Trump,’ [Obama’s] able to get it, and there’s no American fingerprints on this.
The shocking report was denied by both British and American authorities and without further proof, Fox was forced to pull Napolitano off the air.
If the weeks of vacations had cowed Napolitano, he wasn’t showing it on Wednesday. In fact, Napolitano doubled down on his original assertions saying that he’d gone back to his sources they were all willing to stand by their statements.
On standing by his report: “Yes, I do, and the sources stand by it. The American public needs to know more about this rather than less because a lot of the government’s surveillance authorities will expire in the fall, and there will be a great debate about how much authority we want the government to have to surveil us. The more the American public knows about this the more informed their and Congress’ decision will be… I think a lot more is going to come.”
I’m not sure if Judge Nap’s report that British intelligence helped Obama spy on Trump will ever be proven true (or proven false) but I am happy to see the Judge back on the air. His Constitutional knowledge and his passionate defense of our liberties make him a welcome, and needed voice in the mainstream media.
