In an interview with the New York Times, a former intelligence official who pushed a 2008 rumor that former First Lady Michelle Obama made racially-inflammatory comments about white people in a taped-speech admitted he is one of the sources for President Donald Trump’s claim he was “wiretapped.”
With GOP lawmakers and U.S. intelligence officials failing to back up Trump’s Twitter accusations that former President Barack Obama had his Trump Tower office “wiretapped” before the election, the president on Friday passed the buck. Speaking with reporters during a press conference with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Trump indicated he got his wiretapping information by watching Fox News personality and former New Jersey Superior Court Judge, Andrew Napolitano.
According to the Times, Johnson was later behind a rumor that Michelle Obama had made disparaging remarks about white people — calling them “whitey” — that had been recorded and would be released in time to derail the candidacy of then-Senator Barack Obama.
But Mr. Johnson, who was himself once a Fox News contributor, said in a telephone interview that Mr. Napolitano called him on Friday and requested that he speak to The New York Times. Mr. Johnson said he was one of the sources for Mr. Napolitano’s claim about British intelligence.

All according to "Classified" sources !!
There's nothing proving where Napolitano got the story.
The whole thing is wild speculation.
