Fox News Napolitano: Trump is “Clearly Guilty”
Donald Trump has taken more and more shots at Fox News over the past couple of months. The President has been particularly angry over the coverage from host Chris Wallace and former anchor Shep Smith.
Judge Andrew Napolitano has also been willing to take shots at the President from time to time. The legal analyst recently said that Trump’s acquittal is an assault on the Constitution and that Trump is “clearly guilty.”
The Fox News personality said in an op-ed, “The evidence that Trump did this is overwhelming and beyond a reasonable doubt, and no one with firsthand knowledge denied it. Numerous government officials recounted that the presidential leverage of $391 million in U.S. assistance for a personal political favor did occur and the government’s own watchdog concluded that it was indisputably unlawful.”
Napolitano also had criticism for Trump lawyer Alan Dershowitz. He said of his fellow lawyer’s claims:
“This morally bankrupt, intellectually dishonest argument – which effectively resuscitates from history’s graveyard President Richard Nixon’s logic that ‘when the president does it, that means that it is not illegal’ because the president is above the law – must have resonated with Senate Republican leaders. The leaders coerced their Senate Republican colleagues into embracing the view that – since the president did not want Bolton to testify or White House emails to be revealed – they must bar all witnesses and documents.”
