Fox’s Judge Napolitano: Impeachment Evidence Is “Overwhelming”
Fox News’ senior judicial analyst believes House Democrats have plenty of evidence to warrant “about three or four” articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump, Axios reported on Sunday.
While speaking on The Reason Interview with Nick Gillespie, Judge Andrew Napolitano said the House Intelligence Committee has uncovered enough evidence to go after Trump for bribery, election law violation, obstruction of justice and witness interference, adding “that they may also have evidence that Trump lied under oath in written answers to former special counsel Robert Mueller about his conversations with Roger Stone regarding WikiLeaks.”
"He hasn't presented a defense and I don't know if he plans to," the judge said of Trump. "The evidence of his impeachable behavior at this point, in my view, is overwhelming."
Still, Napolitano conceded it is unlikely that Senate Republicans will remove the president from office, despite ample evidence against him.
He also added that presidents violating the law has become the norm rather than the exception in modern American politics:
"No American president in the post–Woodrow Wilson era has stayed within the confines of the Constitution," Napolitano said on the podcast. "That power stays in the presidency. So Donald Trump actually has more authority than Barack Obama did, who had more authority than George W. Bush did, etc."
