Judge Andrew Napolitano, a Fox News legal analyst, believes that the Mueller Report provides the evidence needed to indict President Donald Trump for obstruction of justice.
Napolitano believes that the Mueller report is more valuable in proving Trump’s efforts to impede Mueller’s investigative effort than proving conspiratorial collusion with Russia over the 2016 election, according to an article from Salon.
“We learned from Mueller’s report to Barr that while there is evidence of members of the Trump campaign collaborating with the Russians, there is not enough evidence to establish a conspiracy. We also learned that Trump personally engaged in 10 or 11 – depending on how you count them – efforts to interfere with Mueller’s investigation,” Napolitano wrote.
In the past, obstruction of justice has been a charge leading to impeachment.
"We know that presidential obstruction of justice is an impeachable offense, because both President Richard Nixon and President Bill Clinton — each of whom instructed aides to lie to FBI agents and falsify evidence — were charged with it," Napolitano wrote.
However, according to Napolitano, impeachment of a President is only possible if there is public support for it.
“Effectively, what Bob Mueller said is: 'We had evidence that [Trump] committed a crime, but we couldn't charge him because he's the president of the United States,” Napolitano said in an interview with Fox Business Network.
Napolitano sees the findings of the Mueller Report as actionable only if the public rallies behind obstruction of justice as an impeachable offense.
