Fox legal analyst says Mueller has Trump ‘in the line of fire’ – and slams his colleagues for downplaying it

Published

on

Fox News senior judicial analyst, Andrew Napolitano threw cold water on White House complaints about special counsel Robert Mueller securing Trump transition emails. Napolitano, a former New Jersey Superior Court judge, also criticized his conservative colleagues who have been critical of the investigation to date.

“It’s been widely said Trump’s lawyers believe this was illegal, this is a horrible thing happening,” Fox News anchor Shepard Smith noted. “Which is ridiculous”

“When they ran the transition, the GSA, the Government Services Administration gave them the computers, the software and the server. And every time they went on those computers, every time you go in any GSA-owned computer, you get a notice, there’s no privacy, the e-mail you send belongs to a federal government,” Napolitano reminded.

“So Mueller’s people either — we don’t know what — knock on the doors and say you have the e-mails or got a subpoena. Perfectly legal and done every day of the week,” Napolitano concluded.

“As a matter of course, to not get them would be derelict,” Smith noted.

“Correct,” Napolitano replied.

“Based on the evidence, who is in the line of fire now?” Smith asked.

“Jared Kushner, Donald Trump, Jr and the president is in the line of fire,” Napolitano concluded.

“I’m critical of our colleagues that say there’s no ‘there’ there,” Napolitano admitted. “You know what, Shep? This is a jigsaw puzzle with 100,000 pieces and we see a piece here and a piece there and people say it doesn’t make any sense. It takes time to amass all of these pieces of evidence so that we see the jigsaw puzzle completed, that’s what Mueller and company are trying to do.”

“Indictments and confessions,” Smith noted.

“Yes, yes. Look, General Flynn was exposed to 60 years in jail, if he was convicted of every charge out there and sentenced to the max. He’s exposed to six months,” Napolitano replied.

“How did he go from 60 years to six months? He must have given them something,” Napolitano concluded.

The vote broke along unusual lines, with Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg writing for a majority with Justices Sonia Sotomayor, Elena Kagan, Clarence Thomas, and Neil Gorsuch, and Justice Samuel Alito writing a dissent joined by Chief Justice John Roberts and Justices Stephen Breyer and Brett Kavanaugh.
