While Donald Trump continues to delay providing proof of his allegations that former President Barack Obama wiretapped his office in Trump Tower, the media has reacted in various ways. On Fox News, one contributor has a new theory of his own.

Fox News on Trump

It all started just over a week ago when Donald Trump took to his Twitter account and sent out a series of allegations directed at Barack Obama. The former host of "The Apprentice" accused Obama of wiretapping Trump Tower, comparing the alleged incident to Watergate and Richard Nixon. In the week that has followed, the White House has failed to provide any evidence that backs up the claim, with the likes of White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer and Presidential Counsel Kellyanne Conway have found themselves in the difficult position to defend the president over his remarks.

While the consensus is that Trump, at the very least, was misinformed prior to sending out his tweet, Fox News analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano presented his own theory during a March 14 segment on the network.

While joining the crew on Fox News' "Fox and Friends" on Tuesday morning, Andrew Napolitano pushed a new conspiracy in defense of Donald Trump. "Three intelligence sources have informed Fox News that President Obama went outside the chain of command," Napolitano said, before adding, "There's no American fingerprints on this."

"He didn’t use the NSA, he didn’t use the CIA, he didn’t use the FBI," Andrew Napolitano added, while accuses Obama of attempting to obtain private conversations that involved Donald Trump and others during his time running for president.

"He used GCHA," he noted, explaining that those are the initials of the British spying agency who allegedly have access to the NSA database. "What happened to the guy who ordered this?" Napolitano rhetorically asked, before answering, "Resigned three days after Donald Trump was inaugurated." As of press time, there has been no further proof to validate the latest conspiracy by Napolitano, nor has Obama released a response to the claim in question.

Wiretapping backlash

Donald Trump's wiretapping conspiracy is largely viewed as a baseless deflection by the president to shift the news cycle away from the growing scandal of Russian interference in the election and the White House. While the billionaire real estate mogul and his administration continue to deny any wrongdoing when it comes a potential link to Russia, the media doesn't appear willing to back down in their investigations anytime soon.
