Fox News’ Napolitano Says Trump is an ‘Unindicted Co-Conspirator’: ‘Ample Evidence’ to Indict POTUS
Judge Andrew Napolitano says President Donald Trump could face a “doomsday” over the various investigations surrounding him.
The Fox News senior judicial analyst gave an interview on Fox News earlier Monday in which he rebuked Rudy Giuliani for saying that Robert Mueller will never be allowed to interview the president. Hours later, he doubled down when he joined Fox News anchor Shepard Smith and said Trump could end up getting indicted over his most recent legal woes.
“Last week in a federal direct court here in New York City, a federal judge at the end of Michael Cohen‘s sentencing said the president orchestrated and paid for this crime,” Napolitano said.
“So you’re saying he’s an unindicted co-conspirator?” Smith asked.
“Yes,” Napolitano answered. “There’s ample evidence – this doesn’t require too much analysis – to indict the president, the question is do they want to do it. The DOJ has three opinions in this: two say you can’t indict a sitting president, one says you can, but all three address the problem of ‘what do you do when the statute of limitations is about to expire?’ All three agree in that case you indict in secret, keep it sealed and release it the day he gets out of office.”
As Napolitano continued to remark on Giuliani’s effort to turn the public against investigations into Trump, he argued that Giuliani is actually trying to send a message to Mueller about negotiating terms for an interview with Trump. The goal, Napolitano hypothesized, was to help Trump avoid a subpoena or a grand jury environment where he might walk into trouble.
