The White House has assured British Prime Minister Theresa May it would not repeat allegations that Britain's GCHQ spy agency had helped former U.S. President Barack Obama eavesdrop on Donald Trump, May's spokesman said Friday.The spokesman said the charge, made Tuesday by Fox News analyst Andrew Napolitano, that Britain's Government Communications Headquarters signals intelligence agency had helped Obama wiretap Trump, was "ridiculous". The Republican president offered no proof for the allegation, which an Obama spokesman has 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 had obtained transcripts of Trump's conversations from GCHQ so there were "no American fingerprints" on it.
