‘There’s going to be another impeachment’: Fox News host gasps over Roger Stone’s sentencing

Published

Fox News host Steve Doocy worried on Thursday that Democrats will launch another impeachment effort against President Donald Trump over allegations that he improperly interfered in the sentencing of Roger Stone.

During a segment about the Stone controversy on Fox & Friends, Fox News senior judicial analyst Andrew Napolitano vowed to be impartial after revealing that he has known Stone for 40 years.

According to Napolitano, Stone is “entitled to a new trial” because one of the jurors was found to have posted negative remarks about Trump on social media.

On Wednesday, Judge Amy Berman Jackson reportedly declined a motion Stone’s attorney’s had made asking for a new trial.

But Napolitano argued that Stone’s initial recommended sentence of nine years was inappropriate for the crime of lying to Congress and intimidating a witness.

“Is Roger Stone a danger to society? Absolutely not!” Napolitano exclaimed. “Was anybody harmed as a result of what Roger Stone did? Absolutely not.”

He also insisted that the Democrats have no basis to hold hearings about Stone’s sentencing because the president is “entitled to express an opinion.”

“You know, it was a phone conversation that got the president into trouble with the Democrats,” Doocy observed. “So, if he picks up the phone and says, ‘Hey [Attorney General William Barr], what are they doing over there?’ — somebody’s going to be in the room, they’re going to leak that.”

The Fox News host continued: “The next thing you know there’s going to be another impeachment!”

“The Democrats will impeach him for anything they can,” Napolitano agreed.

“There going to try on this,” Doocy complained.

“There is no basis for interference here,” Napolitano remarked. “There’s no basis for an investigation.”

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) was interviewed by Laura Ingraham on Fox News about the breaking news on Russia.

"A senior U.S. intelligence official told lawmakers last week that Russia wants to see President Trump reelected, viewing his administration as more favorable to the Kremlin’s interests, according to people who were briefed on the comments," The Washington Post reported Thursday. "Trump learned about Pierson’s remarks from Rep. Devin Nunes (Calif.), the committee’s ranking Republican and a staunch Trump ally, said one person familiar with the matter."
