US intelligence 'incidentally' picked up communications from Trump's team
The Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Devin Nunes, said that US intelligence agencies might have 'incidentally' captured communications from Trump's transitional team following his election. Although, this doesn't back up claims that the Obama administration was behind the 'wiretapping'. To discuss this, Share Radio's Ed Bowsher was joined by Chris Gilson, Managing Editor of USAPP, the US Centre's daily blog on US politics at the London School of Economics.

Merkel v Trump – can they establish a strong working relationship?
The German Chancellor Angela Merkel is meeting US President Donald Trump for the first time. So, can they establish a solid working relationship? Last year, Trump accused Merkel of 'going off the reservation' during the refugee crisis and characterised her policies as a 'total disgrace'. However, this could be water under the bridge as it will be strictly business for Merkel who is expected to raise issues including the Nato contributions, the fight against ISIS, and trade. Graham Lanktree, Foreign Reporter with the International Business Times, joined Share Radio Breakfast to look ahead to the meeting.
