This Week in the World Affairs Brief:


The “spying on Trump” story got more complicated this week as Fox News commentator judge Andrew Napolitano said confidential sources told him that British Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ) did the wiretapping of Donald Trump on behalf of Obama to evade being able to trace it through the US government. Predictably, that story was denied by spy agencies on both sides of the Atlantic. The British government’s denial were echoed by both FBI Director James Comey and NSA Director Michael Rogers who, during congressional hearings this week also denied “finding evidence” of the unspecified claim by Trump that he had been the target of a wiretap at all. But Rep. Devin Nunes, the chairman of the House intelligence committee, appeared to muddy the waters by saying that the private communications of the presidential transition team may have been scooped up by American intelligence officials monitoring other targets and improperly distributed throughout spy agencies.
