President Trump was not simply being paranoid when he accused Obama of spying on him, even though that’s what the Democrats would have you believe. Despite Judge Andrew Napolitano’s revelation to Fox News, of information on Obama’s surveillance being confirmed by three different sources, Obama and his administration continued to deny the accusations.

British and other European intelligence agencies intercepted communications between associates of Donald Trump and Russian officials and other Russian individuals during the campaign and passed on those communications to their US counterparts, US congressional and law enforcement and US and European intelligence sources tell CNN.
The communications were captured during routine surveillance of Russian officials and other Russians known to western intelligence. British and European intelligence agencies, including GCHQ, the British intelligence agency responsible for communications surveillance, were not proactively targeting members of the Trump team but rather picked up these communications during what’s known as “incidental collection,” these sources tell CNN.
The European intelligence agencies detected multiple communications over several months between the Trump associates and Russian individuals — and passed on that intelligence to the US. The US and Britain are part of the so-called “Five Eyes” agreement (along with Canada, Australia and New Zealand), which calls for open sharing among member nations of a broad range of intelligence.
So it looks like Napolitano wasn’t that far off base with his story, which Fox suspended him for. Hmmm….
