Obama, Merkel Are Back In A Spy Flap

by Wochit 1:00 mins

It's another Berlin spy story, again involving President Obama and German Chancellor Angela Merkel. Less than a year after Merkel protested U.S. National Security Agency surveillance in Germany – including her own cellphone – she and President Obama must now deal with the arrest of a German man accused of passing secrets to Americans for pay. Merkel told reporters Monday while traveling in China, "If the allegations are true, it would be for me a clear contradiction as to what I consider to be trusting cooperation between agencies and partners." White House spokesman Josh Earnest said he is not in a position to comment on the ongoing case in Germany, but he added that the United States-Germany relationship "is incredibly important" to Obama and his team. German officials said a 31-year-old man – reportedly an employee of Germany's foreign intelligence service – is accused of selling government documents to the Americans between 2012 and 2014.
