UK police investigate Kim Darroch cables - CNN

Memos from Darroch describing the Trump administration as inept were leaked to a British newspaper, infuriating the USA president, who launched a Twitter attack on both the envoy and outgoing prime minister Theresa May, who had given Darroch her full support. You can stop this now.

Kim Darroch resigned on Wednesday after a scandal with leaked diplomatic cables that contained unvarnished assessments of the us administration, according to media reports.

Diplomatic communications leaked to the Daily Mail newspaper last Sunday revealed the UK's envoy in Washington criticizing the Trump Administration and describing the Donald Trump as "inept" and "incompetent".

Met Police Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu said on Friday that there is "clear public interest" in catching the mole.

"He was given a perfectly easy opportunity to say: "I'm sorry about this, he's an excellent ambassador and has my support", which we ought to give him because he is undoubtedly a superb ambassador and a very good civil servant, and he chose quite deliberately not to".

Darroch resigned after days of scathing criticism from the USA president on Twitter.

Johnson said Darroch had not watched the debate but had heard an inaccurate account of what was said.

"(Darroch) said that what somebody had relayed to him had certainly been a factor in his resignation", he told BBC television in a testy interview.

"Once you start prosecuting the media for publishing stuff you don't like, that is a very unsafe place to be", Bob Seely, a Tory MP who sits on the Commons Foreign Affairs committee, told the Telegraph.

"Boris called Kim yesterday to express his full support and his admiration for his skills but I think we have to focus on what happened".

Boris Johnson, frontrunner in that race, has been heavily criticised by lawmakers in his own party and the opposition for failing to defend the ambassador.

However he insisted his comments in a televised debate on Tuesday has been "misrepresented" and denied withholding his backing.

He mentioned Republican Senator Lindsey Graham, who said in a tweet on Wednesday that Darroch "always understood the strength of President Trump and referred to him as the "Terminator" who is indestructible and will most likely be reelected".

Johnson and Hunt are locked in a battle to succeed Theresa May, who resigned as prime minister after failing three times to get parliamentary approval for a withdrawal deal for Britain's exit from the European Union.
