#AceNewsReport – Mar.17: Wiretapping took a new turn on Tuesday with the revelation from US television that Obama ordered his information on Donald Trump from Britain’s GCHQ an allegation flatly denied by UK and now Theresa May has received assurances from White House that this will not happen again her spokesman said on Friday …
Reuters reported that U.S. allegations about GCHQ will not be repeated – May’s spokesmanBritain has received assurances from the United States that allegations the #GCHQ intelligence agency helped former President Barack Obama eavesdrop on Donald Trump will not be repeated, a spokesman for Prime Minister Theresa May said on Friday.
“We’ve made clear to the administration that these claims are ridiculous and they should be ignored and we’ve received assurances that these allegations will not be repeated,” the spokesman told reporters.
“We have a close special relationship with the White House and that allows us to raise concerns as and when they arise as was true in this case.”
GCHQ dismisses as ridiculous claims it helped spy on Trump made on a U.S. television station that it helped former President Barack Obama eavesdrop on Donald Trump after last year’s U.S. presidential election.
In a rare public statement, Britain’s eavesdropping agency said the charge – made on Tuesday by Fox News analyst Andrew Napolitano – was “utterly ridiculous“.
“Recent allegations made by media commentator Judge Andrew Napolitano about GCHQ being asked to conduct ‘wire tapping’ against the then President Elect are nonsense,” a spokesman for GCHQ said.
“They are utterly ridiculous and should be ignored,” the spokesman said.
GCHQ never usually comments on criticism of its work beyond saying it always operates under a strict legal framework.
Reuters reported earlier this week that an unidentified British security official had denied the allegation that #GCHQ had eavesdropped on Trump.
Trump, who became president in January, tweeted earlier this month that his Democratic predecessor had wiretapped him during the late stages of the 2016 campaign. The Republican president offered no evidence for the allegation, which an Obama spokesman said was “simply false”.
On the “Fox & Friends” program, Napolitano, a political commentator and former New Jersey judge, said that rather than ordering U.S. agencies to spy on Trump, Obama obtained transcripts of Trump’s conversations from Britain’s Government Communications Headquarters, or GCHQ, the equivalent of the U.S. National Security Agency, which monitors overseas electronic communications.
White House spokesman Sean Spicer on Thursday quoted Napolitano’s comment on #GCHQ.
