Since longtime Trump adviser Roger Stone's dramatic pre-dawn arrest on Friday, White House spokesperson Sarah Huckabee Sanders has been steadfast in her denials of any connection between Stone's actions and President Donald Trump.
Speaking with Fox News host Harris Faulkner on Tuesday, legal analyst Andrew Napolitano said Sanders' spin is "dangerous."
"Bob Mueller and his team have been very silent. They have spoken only in the courtroom, in their filings, and one-sentence P.R. statement that they issued two weeks ago," Napolitano said. "In my view, it is dangerous to say this has nothing to do with the president and that Mueller has nothing on the president. Because you don't know what Mueller has."
If Stone goes to trial, it will be a year until the hearings begin, Napolitano said.
"The process of a prosecution like this is like putting together a 10,000-piece jigsaw puzzle," Napolitano said. "Only Mueller knows how many pieces are there. And what he still needs."
