Fox News’ Judge Andrew Napolitano said tonight that while he thinks some of the Democrats’ attacks on Bill Barr are unfair and over-the-top, he has some concerns about the AG’s credibility.
He told Martha MacCallum, “I think he may have harmed his own credibility a little bit. If you look back at the four-page letter that he sent three or four Sundays ago, there isn’t a hint or a whiff of the full flavor in there of what the Mueller team found with respect to obstruction of justice and I think he should have tipped his hand a little bit on that. He quite fairly and accurately in that letter addressed the absence of a conspiracy with the Russians.”
As far as the obstruction issue goes, Napolitano said it does not have to necessarily be successful to be obstruction:
“If I’m going to go into a courthouse to testify against you, God forbid, but if that were the case and you tackled me in the street and broke my leg and I still made it in there and still testified, you can be charged with obstruction because obstruction rarely succeeds. It’s an attempt to interfere.”
