Fox News Senior Judicial Analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano just dropped a new bomb about the wire-tapping scandal that has unfolded over the past few weeks.
Much has been written about FISA court requests the Obama administration sought in order to surveil Trump Tower during the run-up to the election. But during a Tuesday appearance on “Fox & Friends, the Judge reports a new source of covert intelligence.
He claims “three intelligence sources” say Obama looked to British spy agency GCHQ to obtain transcripts of conversations involving Donald Trump.
“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 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 saying, ‘President Obama needs transcripts of conversations involving candidate Trump, conversations involving president-elect Trump,’ he’s able to get it, and there’s no American fingerprints on this.”

Never before have we had a sitting president attempt to undermine his successor. Do you agree that Congress should investigate Barack Obama for his egregious actions?
