Fox News legal analyst Andrew Napolitano on Monday said he finds it impossible to believe that the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York will not at some point indict President Donald Trump.
While talking with Fox News’ Bill Hemmer, Napolitano explained that the SDNY filing released last week indicated that Trump was in significant legal jeopardy, and he could not imagine the office making it without some plan to bring charges against the president.
“This is the Southern District of New York,” he said. “This is the oldest and most prodigious prosecutors’ office in the country. They would not make an allegation like that if they did not have corroborated evidence to support it. And they cannot make an allegation like that unless they’re going to do something with it.”
Even though the United States Department of Justice has informal rules against indicting a sitting president, Napolitano explained that prosecutors would nonetheless have options at their disposal where they wouldn’t have to simply drop the case.
In particular, Napolitano said that prosecutors could file a “secret indictment” against Trump that is hidden from public view to ensure that the statute of limitations on his alleged crimes does not run out.

Kayleigh McEnany suggests Trump has never lied as she clashes with CNN’s Jim Acosta over Twitter’s fact-checking
During an exchange with CNN's Jim Acosta this Thursday, White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany suggested that Donald Trump has never intentionally lied during his tenure as president.
After discussing Trump's recent attacks on social media platforms for allegedly being biased against conservatives, McEnany called on Acosta, who asked her if she thinks Trump should be fact checked on Twitter.
"...especially this president, who has made so many false and misleading statements that has put fact checkers to work across the world," Acosta said, adding that the Trump administration is "trying to silence fact checking."
Kellyanne Conway voted by mail — before opposing it for other voters: report
On Wednesday, Kellyanne Conway said voting by mail should not be universal, adding that people should be willing to wait in lines to vote during a pandemic if they are willing to wait in hour-long lines at Georgetown Cupcake. People were swift to point out the flaws in her argument, including that cupcakes are not a constitutional right and that Georgetown Cupcake is actually not allowing people to stand in line right now.
But there's another problem. On Thursday, the Huffington Post reported that Conway herself voted by mail in the 2018 midterm elections.
Research reveals the damage right-wing media has inflicted on America — and it’s just the tip of the iceberg
Donald Trump wants to go after social media because Twitter pointed out one of his lies. And, in fact, social media has done a lot of damage to America and the American body politic, with the most visible example being it’s help in putting Donald Trump in the White House in 2016.
But even more concerning should be Fox News and right wing hate radio. A new study out of Columbia university finds that when people in any particular ZIP Code experience a 1% increase in Fox News viewership, it “reduces the propensity to stay at home by 8.9 percentage points compared to the pre-pandemic average.”
