Donald Trump's wiretapping allegations 'nonsensical,' ex-UK ambassador says

He claimed former President Barack Obama had ordered the British agency to tap phones at Trump Tower.

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.

Sir Peter Westmacott said the USA administration was playing a "dangerous game" and risked providing a "gift to our enemies" by damaging intelligence-sharing.

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.

He warned it risked undermining a relationship that was "critical" to US-UK efforts to counter a range of threats including terrorism, Russian aggression, Chinese cyber-attacks, and the nuclear threat from North Korea.

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.

Britain's national security adviser, Mark Lyall, had spoken with Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster, his American counterpart, to diffuse the situation.

"Gratuitously damaging it by peddling falsehoods and then doing nothing to set the record straight would be a gift to our enemies they could only dream of".

Westmacott also referred to Trump's "famous reluctance to admit mistakes".

SK Group's executives summoned over corruption scandal with ex president
Park has stayed in her private home in a southern district of Seoul since she vacated the presidential Blue House on Sunday night. The Samsung Group, South Korea's largest conglomerate, is already embroiled in the scandal and its head, Jay Y.

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

"We said nothing", Trump told a reporter.

Trump reiterated those claims when he spoke in front of the media during his meeting with Angela Merkel, and though the British government already debunked those claims, Trump didn't offer an apology for making baseless claims. "All we did was quote a certain very talented legal mind who was the one responsible for saying that on television".

Kim Darroch, the British ambassador to the United States, also helped in alleviating the tense situation between the two nations by speaking with Sean Spicer last week and, according to a spokesperson for Prime Minister Theresa May, the White House made a decision to back off from their claims of illegal wiretapping.

'We said nothing, ' he said.

He added: "You shouldn't be talking to me".

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. "No, there never was".

Trump's wiretapping accusation against the GCHQ may be a touchy point of contention on Tuesday when Britain's Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson meets with senior Trump aides in Washington, The Guardian reported.
