The White House has issued a formal apology to the British government after Press secretary Sean Spicer repeated claims that the Obama administration used British spies to wiretap Donald Trump

General McMaster contacted Sir Mark Lyall Grant, the Prime Minister’s National Security Adviser, to apologise for the comments. Mr Spicer conveyed his apology through Sir Kim Darroch, Britain’s US ambassador.

The claims were made earlier this week by legal analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano, who said that three separate intelligence sources had indicated to him that the Obama administration had asked Britain’s GCHQ to carry out the surveillance.
