    Default Fox's fake news angers the UK. Now we have the British mad at us?

    So a Fox News commentator opens his mouth and makes stupid claims using anonymous sources and causes an international crisis. Wow.

    http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/n...317-story.html

    British officials complained to the White House Thursday after Press Secretary Sean Spicer cited a Fox News commentator's report claiming former President Barack Obama had enlisted U.K. intelligence to spy on President Donald Trump.

    Andrew Napolitano, a legal pundit for Fox News who has advised the current president, claimed during a March 14 telecast that three intelligence sources told the network Obama personally appealed to the British Government Communications Headquarters, known as the GCHQ, to spy on Trump. Spicer highlighted the report in a list of media accounts he read to reporters during his briefing on Thursday, arguing that the stories helped validate the president's unsubstantiated allegation that his predecessor had surveilled him.
    When you have the leaders of the House and Senate intelligence committees and the majority leaders in both Houses saying this is all garbage, it's about time for a little intelligence, if there's such a thing, to manifest itself and for this administration to back off. But it appears that brains aren't a commodity in this administration.

    The UK Telegraph did a profile on "Judge Nap" and wrote this:

    British officials have categorically denied Napolitano's reporting, and Spicer's decision to cite it from the White House podium threatened to strain relations between the trans-Atlantic allies.
    Another nice mess, Trump.

    You do know Obama DID officials Send it back to the "UK" actually the British Embassy held onto it. Which by definition is the UK.
    And Trump got it back.
    So not sure why you are saying for REAL since Obama did return it while he was president.

    Since when are intelligence agencies of any nation, believable? What a joke leftists have become, so self contradicting nothing they say has credence anymore. Their claims and their protests are just lies.

    Spicer repeated it in a press conference. Spicer speaks on behalf of the President.

    Yea, I'm sure they loved it when Obama sent the bust of Winston Churchill back to the UK, huh?

    Irrelevant. Obama still insulted them sending it back.

    Napolitano can say whatever he wants.

    When a White House official repeats it though. That is what causes problems.
