President Donald Trump shocked the world again when he admitted that he would take dirt on a campaign rival from a foreign operative.
During a Wednesday interview with Fox News Shep Smith, judicial analyst Andrew Napolitano ripped Trump and said he be committing a felony if he accepted the information.
“Is there any way to argue that dirt from a foreign entity on a political opponent would be something that you can receive legally?” Smith asked.
“There’s no wiggle room with respect to dirt. With respect to opposition research,” Napolitano responded.
“What the president said he would do to George Stephanopoulos would be felonious,” Smith said.
“Correct. Meaning he would be committing a felony and the person giving it to him, if the person were here, would be committing a felony as well,” Napolitano said. “This is not an area of freedom of speech.”

Luppen, who offers legal analysis on his popular @nycsouthpaw Twitter account, came to a conclusion that seemed to surprise him after watching the interview.
"I’ve never seen a lawyer sit on a cable panel show and make that much news," Luppen wrote.
Democratic prosecutors wrap up case against Trump
Democratic prosecutors on Friday wrapped up three days of arguments for seeking Donald Trump's removal from office, as the US president's lawyers prepared to take their turn presenting his defense in the Senate's historic impeachment trial.
For a final eight-hour stretch, the 100 senators listened as Democrats argued that Trump abused the power of the presidency in pressuring Ukraine to launch investigations that would help him politically and then sought to block efforts by Congress to investigate.
Democrats said they had met the burden of proof as they warned Republicans that Trump would remain a grave danger to the nation if left in office.
