Fox News analyst says GOP 'under-delivered' on Nunes memo -- and it doesn't come close to 'vindicating' Trump
Andrew Napolitano (Fox News)

Fox News legal analyst Andrew Napolitano is decidedly underwhelmed by Rep. Devin Nunes' memo that allegedly shows the FBI abusing its powers to seek FISA warrants against former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.


Discussing the Nunes memo on Fox Monday, Napolitano said that he hoped President Donald Trump lets the Democrats release their own memo to counter the assertions made by Nunes and his colleagues about the FBI's efforts to obtain and renew a FISA warrant on Page during the 2016 presidential election.

"I want it to come out," he said. "I want to see who on that committee is spinning. I think the Republicans over-promised and under-delivered on their memo, and we'll see if Democrats do the same."

Napolitano also sharply contradicted President Trump by saying the Nunes memo doesn't come close to "vindicating" him in the Russia probe.

"The president has claimed total vindication," Napolitano said. "That's the president being the president... I don't think he should have a false sense of confidence. I understand why he says things like that, it gins up his base and it may help him politically, but legally it's of no moment."
