Judge Napolitano Breaks Down Giuliani’s Claim That Mueller Can’t Indict Trump

Andrew Napolitano appeared on Fox & Friends Thursday morning to offer his analysis of Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani‘s claim that the special counsel said it could not indict a sitting president, and laid out the nuances of those laws. The Fox News judicial analysis explained that the Justice Department has two memos, both drafted during Bill Clinton‘s administration: “one says the president can be indicted, the other says the president cannot be indicted.” Fox & Friends host Steve Doocy pointed out Giuliani’s comments that the president needs to be impeached by the House before he can be indicted. Napolitano reiterated that there is another DOJ meme that holds “the president can be indicted but not prosecuted before he leaves office,” so as to “stop the running of the statute of limitations.” Brian Kilmeade asked if Trump surrogates’ strategy to put public pressure on special counsel Robert Continue reading "Judge Napolitano Breaks Down Giuliani’s Claim That Mueller Can’t Indict Trump"

Judge Napolitano: Claim That Trump Didn’t Know What Cohen Payment Was For is ‘Unworthy of Belief’

Fox News’ Andrew Napolitano says that despite what Rudy Giuliani may claim, there’s no way President Trump had no idea that he reimbursed Michael Cohen without knowing it was because of Stormy Daniels. Giuliani gave an explosive interview to Sean Hannity last night where he said that Trump repaid Cohen for the $130,000 of hush money he paid so that Daniels would keep quiet about her relationship with the president. Trump previously claimed that he never knew about the Daniels payoff, and Giuliani backpedaled by making it clear that’s what he meant. When Napolitano joined Fox & Friends to break this all down, he scolded Giuliani for his calls to shut down Robert Mueller‘s special counsel investigation. The judge also poured cold water on the notion of Trump being in the dark on Daniels.
“If Rudy wants the public to believe that Donald Trump reimbursed Michael Cohen $130,000 and Continue reading "Judge Napolitano: Claim That Trump Didn’t Know What Cohen Payment Was For is ‘Unworthy of Belief’"

Judge Napolitano Fires Back at Giuliani Over Call to Shut Down Russia Probe: ‘That is a Dangerous Argument’

Fox News judicial analyst Andrew Napolitano fired back at Rudy Giuliani — and his client President Donald Trump — over their arguments that the Russia probe should be shut down because the Justice Department is corrupted. Fox & Friends host Ainsley Earhardt asked Napolitano on Thursday morning about Giuliani’s argument that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein “should end the Mueller probe because there is too much government misconduct.” “It reminded all of us there is no collusion,” Earhardt added, (a strange statement to make without any evidence). “So why is this investigation even happening?” “That is a dangerous argument to make,” Napolitano replied. “There are 90,000 people work in the Justice Department. There are 8,000 FBI agents. These people are doing the work of protecting our lives, our liberty, and our property.” “For him to say that the Justice Department is out of control or that the Continue reading "Judge Napolitano Fires Back at Giuliani Over Call to Shut Down Russia Probe: ‘That is a Dangerous Argument’"

Fox News’ Andrew Napolitano Explains How Comey Could Be Signaling Mueller’s Next Moves

Andrew Napolitano appeared on Fox & Friends the morning after James Comey’s interview with George Stephanopoulos on ABC, and explained where the former FBI director could be telegraphing the next moves in the Russia investigation. The Fox News judicial analyst first noted that Comey’s comments that “it’s possible” the Russians have compromising information on President Donald Trump is meaningless, and was just the former FBI director’s opinion. “The most dangerous thing was his comments about obstruction of justice,” Napolitano said. “Why do I think that’s dangerous? Because he talks to [Special Counsel Robert] Mueller and because he knows Bob Mueller’s thinking on this.” “We don’t care if Jim Comey thinks the president may have obstructed justice,” Napolitano explained. “But if he’s sending a signal that Mueller and company think that, they think it on the basis of some evidence and that’s potentially worrisome.” “You think he is talking Continue reading "Fox News’ Andrew Napolitano Explains How Comey Could Be Signaling Mueller’s Next Moves"

Brian Kilmeade and Judge Napolitano Hit Roger Stone For Getting Trump in Trouble: ‘He Means Well…’

During an appearance on Fox & Friends, Judge Andrew Napolitano suggested Roger Stone should have been a little less loose-lipped on his alleged meeting with Wikileaks’ Julian Assange. “If you know Roger, you know that sometimes like the president, he doesn’t always use an economy of words, but he means well,” Napolitano told Brian Kilmeade. On Monday, The Wall Street Journal reported that Special Counsel Robert Mueller is investigating Stone’s claim in an email that he had dinner with Assange in 2016. Stone has since brushed off the statement, saying it was just a joke to his then colleague Sam Nunberg. Asked about the accusation that Mueller is not providing enough transparency to his probe of Continue reading "Brian Kilmeade and Judge Napolitano Hit Roger Stone For Getting Trump in Trouble: ‘He Means Well…’"

Fox News’ Judge Napolitano: McCabe Firing Was Reckless, Could Be Seen as Effort to Obstruct

Fox News’ Judge Andrew Napolitano did not like how the firing of Andrew McCabe went down. After the recommendation from the FBI disciplinary office, AG Jeff Sessions fired McCabe days before he was set to resign with his full pension. Napolitano first spoke with Bill Hemmer about the memos McCabe handed over to Mueller. Hemmer asked, “Do you think the firing was vindictive and reckless?” Napolitano responded, “I do… Andrew McCabe is more likely than not to be a witness against the Attorney General’s boss, the President of the United States. I think firing him in that environment could very well be interpreted as an effort to diminish his effectiveness as a witness. What’s that called? Obstruction of justice.” Just last week, before McCabe’s firing, Napolitano did say he has serious issues with McCabe’s conduct, saying “he has become the poster boy for a politicized and morally Continue reading "Fox News’ Judge Napolitano: McCabe Firing Was Reckless, Could Be Seen as Effort to Obstruct"
