Fox News pulls embattled Napolitano from air after Trump report

Shortly before inauguration day, Napolitano had a one-on-one meeting with Trump about Supreme Court nomination possibilities.

"Nothing has changed", a White House official wrote in the email.

A blogger and former Central Intelligence Agency analyst says he was a source for an uncorroborated claim made on Fox News about supposed spying at Trump Tower - but he says he didn't mean to be.

Asked about whether Obama was personally upset by Trump's wiretap claim - which has been rebutted by congressional officials from both parties with knowledge of ongoing law enforcement and intelligence investigations - Mastromonaco described frustration she said past staffers had with the new president.

Napolitano, a regular face on Fox News, has not appeared on the network since Thursday and will not be a guest in the near future, the Los Angeles Times and the Associated Press reported Monday, citing anonymous sources.

America's National Security Agency (NSA) also dismissed the claims. Other legal experts were on TV all day long, discussing Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey's testimony and Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch's confirmation hearing.

Inflation surges to 2.3% - highest level since September 2013
Food prices rose 0.3pc last month having fallen consistently for the past two and a half years. That was actually a bigger rise than economists polled before the release expected.

Earlier on Monday, Federal Bureau of Investigation Director James Comey told the House of Representatives Intelligence Committee there is an ongoing federal investigation into Russia's alleged interference in the 2016 U.S. election. "How you use the game of golf is something he's talked about".

"You saw him utilise this with Prime Minister Abe to help foster a deeper relationship in Asia and have a growing relationship that's going to help USA interests", Spicer said. White House press secretary Sean Spicer said Manafort, who led Trump's successful 2016 bid for the Republican presidential nomination "played a very limited role for a very limited amount of time".

But that did not stop Trump from bringing them up again.

"All we did was quote a certain very talented legal mind who was the one responsible for that on television", he said. "I just wish he used it productively to make deals with Congress!"

But Napolitano said on one program that "Fox News has spoken to intelligence community members who believe that surveillance did occur, that it was done by British intelligence".

Fox News host Shepard Smith also denied Friday that his network has information validating Napolitano's remarks, saying the network knows of "no evidence of any kind that the now-President of the United States was surveilled at any time in any way".
