Did Fox News Just Fire Judge Napolitano Over His Claims Obama Used British Spies to Wiretap Trump’s Phones?
Fox News has indefinitely benched its senior judicial analyst, Judge Andrew Napolitano, after President Donald Trump cited the judge’s claims that President Barack Obama used British intelligence sources to wiretap Trump’s campaign phones, according to sources.
Judge Napolitano has been among the missing during Fox News’s coverage of the confirmation process for Judge Neil Gorsuch, an event for which he should be a primary source of commentary, the L.A. Times notes. Napolitano has been off the air since March 16.
Neither Fox nor Judge Napolitano commented on the situation, but the Times says insiders have confirmed the defacto suspension.
UPDATE: Mediaite is reporting "A Fox News source tells Mediaite that Judge Napolitano has not been suspended by the network."
