White House DENIES apologizing to Britain over false surveillance claim

Earlier we posted how CNN reported that the Trump administration apologized to Britain for repeating reporting that they helped Obama surveil Trump.

Sean Spicer made it clear that Trump apologizes to no one, especially those he’s insulted!!

White House press secretary Sean Spicer flatly denied Friday that the White House apologized to the British government after citing an uncorroborated Fox News report to allege that a UK intelligence agency spied on President Donald Trump at the behest of former President Barack Obama.

Earlier in the day, however, a senior administration official told CNN that Spicer and national security adviser H.R. McMaster offered what amounted to an apology to the British government for Spicer’s comments on Thursday, when he cited a Fox News report that said British intelligence helped wiretap Trump Tower during the 2016 campaign.

“I don’t think we regret anything,” Spicer told reporters at a gaggle Friday afternoon. Asked by CNN’s Jim Acosta if there was an apology by the administration to the British government over the matter, Spicer replied, “No, we were just passing on news reports.”

El Scoopo said he hoped Trump learned his lesson from starting an international incident in order to stubbornly protect his conspiracy theories. It sounds like he hasn’t learned one thing.

Here’s Trump earlier defending the report from Judge Napolitano:

And how people reacted when he first made the claim:

That worked out well, huh?
