Judge Napolitano Flips On Donald Trump: The President May Have Not Been 'Truthful With the American People'


Wow, why did Fox new legal analyst Judge Napolitano flip on Trump? He has generally been in the President's corner.

Following former FBI Director James Comey’s testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee, Napolitano said on Fox News:
Today certainly advanced the ball on the seriousness of this investigation and the breadth of its scope. If you look […] at the big picture […] you get a very, very credible and compelling argument that the President of the United States has not been truthful with the American people and ordered the director of the FBI to shut down an investigation.
This is a very strange analysis from the judge.

The Alan Dershowitz analysis appears to be on much stronger ground.

  1. Not sure he did this time, but Judge Napolitano has noted in the past that Comey is a personal friend. He may not be objective in this particular matter.

  2. I don't see any problem with the judge's comments as posted here. Watched the entire testimony, suggest others do the same. The insinuation by McCain that there was a double standard was completely delusional and I don't think he even knew what the hell he was talking about much less anyone else.

  3. I dislike McCain intensely and he was a bumbling questioner. Why is it that the FBI's Russian interference in our election, which included alleged hacks, fake news and contacts with certain Russians, is still on-going but Comey can only answer some pointed questions in the "secret" testimony and, at the same time, completely publicly clear Democrat/Clinton side of the alleged Russian interferece.

    Comey had the presence of mind to begin "memorializing" meetings with Trump because Comey distrusted Trump. So, Comey met with Trump, already biased against Trump in a heightened (spidey) mindset. What are the chances that Comey would misinterpret Trump? If Comey had the foresight to begin jotting down his impressions because wanting a special prosecutor to be appointed, what are the chances of a seasoned government lawyer memorializing deliberate missrepresntations?

    Comey's claim that it was after the first Trump meeting that the memorializing began, How come, then, that the leak predated the meeting, if the timeline posted elsewhere in the internet are correct? Could the meeting been a Canary Trap setup?

    Comey was a classic fired disgruntled employee.

    1. The leak didn't predate the meeting. The leak happened after he was fired. He leaked only his unclassified notes after Trump started trying to discredit him and the FBI. He also said most of the supposedly classified information leaks to the newspapers are almost entirely BS. The Republican pundits' view that him leaking some notes on an unclassified meeting with the President is proof that he was the source of every leak ever is delusional. I don't like Comedy, I think he's an idiot, but I would rather have FBI agents who resist corruption and expose it for what it is that ones that go along to get along.

    2. Also, FYI he didn't answer question that would involve classified information. He answered all the others and told them he was willing to answer the others in a closed setting. The republican spin that he was dodging questions is nonsense. He's just more of a pro than Hillary. Trumps team were the ones dodging questions.

    3. Nobody says Comey only source.
      Aa to timelines, the internet is your oyster.

  4. Did Comey write his memos during working hours and using government equipment? Then, he cannot claim they are personal property. Otherwise is an illegal use of government time and property.
