Fox News has reportedly pulled Andrew Napolitano from the air indefinitely after he made claims that a British intelligence agency had wiretapped Trump Tower.

Napolitano, a Fox News analyst, is not scheduled to appear on the network in the near future, the Los Angeles Times reported, according to people familiar with the situation.

Last week, Napolitano made the claims about the Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ) spying on Trump at former President Barack Obama‘s behest.


White House press secretary Sean Spicer then quoted Napolitano’s remarks while defending the president’s claims earlier this month that the former president had wiretapped Trump Tower before the election.

“Judge Andrew Napolitano made the following statement, quote, ‘Three intelligence sources have informed Fox News that President Obama went outside the chain of command,’” Spicer said during a daily press briefing last week.

“‘He didn’t use the [National Security Agency], he didn’t use the CIA … he used GCHQ.’”

Top intel chiefs testified at a House Intelligence Committee hearing on Capitol Hill Monday over allegations that Russia meddled in the U.S. electoral system during the 2016 campaign.

United States House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes made clear during his opening statement that the committee needs to find out what actions Russia undertook during the 2016 political campaign and if anyone from the Trump campaign colluded.

In his address, Mr. Nunes referred to the Russian news outlet RT as a “propaganda network” and admitted that “it’s still possible that other surveillance methods were used on Trump and associates.”


National Security Agency head Adm. Mike Rogers told the committee that the intel community has been aware for some time of the “direct connections” between RT and the Russian government such as “monetary flow.”

During his testimony Adm. Rogers answered a good deal of questions but managed to bob and weave around others in which details remain classified.

Likewise, F.B.I. Director James Comey’s testimony fell short whenever any sensitive questions arose, making his answers rather brief and stale.

“I have been authorized by the Department of Justice to confirm that the F.B.I. as part of our counter-intelligence mission is investigating the Russian government’s efforts to interfere with the 2016 presidential election and that includes investigating any links between individual associates with the Trump campaign and the Russian government and whether there was any coordination between the campaign and the Russian efforts,” Comey said.

Adm. Mike Rogers addressed that fact that the N.S.A. has no evidence indicating votes were changed during the election process, but appeared to be dodging questions regarding the “incidental collection” of data surrounding “U.S. persons” who may have spoken with or came in contact with a targeted foreign individual.

The N.S.A. head explained to the committee how in most cases the masking of a U.S. person’s name in documentation is usually done with a generic entry such as “U.S. Person 1” or “U.S. Person 2,” which typically keeps the person of interested unidentified.

Adm. Rogers said that he is one of only 20 people inside the NSA that have the ability to “unmask” names or “purge” the data and that the White House can make a request to unmask a name but it is ultimately left up to specific agencies and employees.

Rogers also told the committee that the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act requests have nothing to do with Section 702 which is not authorized to be used domestically.

Rep. Trey Gowdy also expressed his concerns during the hearing in regards to the unauthorized publication of classified information by domestic news agencies.

“The unauthorized dissemination or publication of classified or otherwise legally protected information is punishable by up to 10-years in prison, ” Gowdy said, also listing the New York Times and the Washington Post as offenders.

According to Gowdy, only the Department of Justice, along with the C.I.A., F.B.I. and the N.S.A. can unmask U.S. persons’ names and leakers should be held accountable.

F.B.I. Dir. Comey said he didn’t want to confirm such classified information had hit the press from anyone inside his agency, but made it clear such actions are “criminal.”

Additionally, the committee spoke about political operative and frequent guest on the Alex Jones Show Roger Stone who may have been a target of surveillance due to his alleged connections to the hacker Guccifer 2.0 and his foreknowledge of the Podesta email leaks.

FUND BALANCE POLICY AMENDMENT


I have reviewed the video of the Town Council video for the meeting on March 7, 2017 and have several concerns about this new policy change that was not mentioned during the discussion.

1.     The first concern is that under the new policy the School Budget is not utilized to compute the 12.5% requirement.  This is the crutch of the amendment.  If we have an emergency that the town needs to utilize these Undesignated Funds, what is going to happen to the School side?  Who is going to be responsible for the School side?  The Town needs to remember that the State has a history of never paying the full 55% they are obligated to pay.
2.    Next, there was no mention of our Debt Services and Lease pay account in computing the 12.5%.  If the town is forced to use the Undesignated Funds and these account are not considered; we could be facing defaulting on our bonds and leased requirements.  This would affect our credit rating and we would lose the ability to borrow money to recover.
3.    According to the Sun Journal and the Finance Director, this amendment reduces the amount of tax dollars the town must keep in reserve by $1.11 million dollars.  If that is the case, what is the town planning on doing with these funds?

This appears on the surface to be “Creative Accounting”.  Manipulating figures means that you are playing “Russian Roulette” with taxpayer’s dollars.  So let’s say, this scheme goes south, who is going to have to save the day; the taxpayers are going to be hurt the most.

Are we really going to put them in that position?
