If only the President had the most advanced intelligence agencies in the world at his fingertips so he could understand this is all bullshit?! They are to appear Monday before the House of Representatives Intelligence Committee.

The latest claim that the British intelligence community illegally tapped Trump's phones came about during White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer's briefing last Thursday, March 16.

A former British ambassador to the U.S. has lashed out at Donald Trump, calling his allegations that the United Kingdom wiretapped the Trump Tower "absurd" and "nonsensical", while warning that the controversy could damage the two countries' close relationship. "No, but there never was, and the information we got on Friday continues to lead us in that direction".

The New York Times described the allegations as having provoked as a "rare public dispute with America's closest ally". But Comey, as the Federal Bureau of Investigation chief, sought to get the Justice Department, which oversees the Federal Bureau of Investigation, to disavow Trump's claim shortly after the president made it, but the agency has not released any statement.

"I think the president, frankly, ought to acknowledge that a mistake was made, apologize to President Obama and move on", he advised.

Russian Federation may have been behind the claim that GCHQ spied on Donald Trump, a former British ambassador to Washington suggested today. "All we did was quote a certain very talented legal mind who was the one responsible for saying that on television". "You shouldn't be talking to me, you should be talking to Fox".

Spicer later cited an unsubstantiated report from Fox News analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano, who said that GCHQ had colluded in obtaining intelligence on Trump.

Admiral Rogers said he agreed with comments from the British Government that claims GCHQ was involved in surveillance on Mr Trump were "nonsense" and "utterly ridiculous".

FBI Director James Comey testifies on Capitol Hill in Washington, Monday, March 20, 2017, before the House Intelligence Committee hearing on allegations of Russian interference in the 2016 USA presidential election.

"We live in a very risky world and we can't do it alone, and when we have a major ally - and it's not just sorry to the President [Obama] but also to the United Kingdom, for the claims, or the intimation, that the United Kingdom was involved in this as well", he added.
