Fox News senior judicial analyst Andrew Napolitano on Monday argued that Democrats have a “basis” for impeachment because former special counsel Robert Mueller alleged that President Donald Trump committed high crimes and misdemeanors.
During an interview on Fox Business, host Neil Cavuto asked Napolitano if he agreed with Democrats who believe Trump has committed “clear impeachable offenses.”
“Asking people who work for you to lie to federal investigators, which is what Richard Nixon was accused of doing and Bill Clinton was accused of doing, has traditionally been characterized as a specie of utter high crimes and misdemeanors,” Napolitano asserted.
“The president says that didn’t happen,” Cavuto noted.
“Bob Mueller says it did,” Napolitano replied. “It would be he said/he said. But it would be a basis for the House Judiciary Committee to begin investigations if they want. Stated differently, obstruction of justice has been found by either the Congress or the House Judiciary Committee consistently to be a lawful constitutional basis for impeachment.”
“But impeachment is a political question, not a legal one,” he added.

On Saturday, George Conway drew attention to a specific passage of a new article from The New York Times about the intelligence community's efforts to counterattack the Russian power grid, in response to years of covert Kremlin attacks on our own:
“[O]fficials described...hesitation to go into detail with Mr. Trump about operations against Russia for concern...that he might countermand it or discuss it with foreign officials, as he did in 2017 when he mentioned a sensitive operation...to the Russian foreign minister.” https://t.co/BXTjjXBmia
