Fox News’ Judge Napolitano: ‘Outlandish and Outrageous’ for Giuliani to Keep Pushing ‘Spy’ Claim

Fox News’ Judge Andrew Napolitano is standing by his comments last night calling the claims of “SpyGate” baseless and unfounded thus far.

On Outnumbered today, he spoke with the co-hosts about Trey Gowdy‘s similar debunking last night and echoed what the outgoing congressman said about how the FBI acted in the way President Trump himself would have wanted.

Trump today tweeted what Gowdy said in reference to Jeff Sessions, and not about Gowdy rebuking his “SpyGate” claims.

Napolitano said again the exaggeration is not helpful:

“The use of an informant––this professor that we’re asked not to mention his name on air––to belly up to a bar and have a conversation with someone in the campaign is such a stunningly unremarkable event, because law enforcement does this all the time. Now, Rudy Giuliani said they put an undercover FBI agent on the campaign. There is zero evidence for that. That is such an outlandish and outrageous allegation. It should not have been made without showing any evidence.”

And while Trump is not yet a target of the investigation, Napolitano noted that “you can go from a subject to a target like that.”
