Britain's GCHQ agency denies wiretapping Donald Trump

20 March 2017, 06:40 | Kevin Scott

Neither the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the NSA, or the Department of Justice can substantiate Trump's claims - which he first tweeted on the morning of Saturday, March 4, according to testimony during a House Intelligence Committee hearing Monday.

Comey and Roger's denials were unsurprising, since lawmakers across the political divide have repeatedly said there's no evidence to back up Trump's claims.

In Fleming's in-tray will be to fix ties strained by claims made by the presidential press secretary, Sean Spicer, that GCHQ had helped the previous president spy on Donald Trump.

Sir Peter Westmacott said Sunday that the claims are nonsensical and "gratuitously damaging" to UK-US ties, as cited in a Guardian report.

The new head of GCHQ certainly has the right surname to write a new chapter in British-US intelligence relations which are now under strain. "It is critical to our shared efforts to counter terrorism". "Russian aggression, the cyberattacks of China, the nuclear threat from North Korea, and much else".

"Anyone with any knowledge of the intelligence world knew the suggestion was absurd". "First, the president of the United States does not have the power to order the tapping of anyone's phone".

Now, The Times is reporting that British foreign secretary Boris Johnson is visiting the USA this coming week to "patch up ties" with the White House, along with other planned meetings.

Westmacott also wrote disdainfully about Trump's "famous reluctance to admit mistakes".

South Supreme Airlines Aircraft Crashes in South Sudan
Details are slowly emerging of some passengers being pulled out alive from the wreckage. The plane was flying from the capital, Juba to Wau in South Sudan.

The wiretapping allegation is seen by many as a controversy entirely of Trump's own making. "I have seen nothing on the NSA side that we engaged in any such activity nor that anyone ever asked us to engage in such activity", Rogers told the committee.

GCHQ slammed the claims as "utterly ridiculous" and said they should be "ignored".

When questioned about the stunning accusation during a meeting with Chancellor Angela Merkel on Friday, Trump said Spicer was simply repeating a media report.

"All we did was quote a certain very talented legal mind who was the one responsible for saying that on television".

"We need to make sure we are all working together", he said. Fox News now says it can not confirm the report.

Fox News has disassociated itself from the allegations, saying there is no evidence to back them.

A Senate committee on Thursday concluded that there were "no indications" Trump Tower was under surveillance by the USA government before or after the election.
