Judge Napolitano: ‘Credible and Compelling’ Case That Donald Trump Has Not Been Honest

Judge Napolitano, the libertarian Fox News legal beagle one would instinctively think would automatically be on the side of Trump and the gut the government brigade has signaled that Comey has made a credible and compelling case Trump has lied. Of course this comes as absolutely no surprise for those of us who have been paying attention ever since Trump announced his candidacy in 2016.

Fox News legal analyst Andrew Napolitano reacted to James Comey‘s congressional hearing on Thursday by underlining the serious legal implications of the former FBI director’s testimony.

“Today certainly advanced the ball on the seriousness of this investigation and the breadth of its scope,” Napolitano said. “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.”

The pundit continued by outlining, “Did he order it because he wanted to conserve Justice Department resources, or did he order it because he wanted to protect a friend? The former would be a legitimate order; the latter is arguably a corrupt order or a…corrupt intent.”

Moments later, anchor Shannon Bream pointed out that “we found out today that the former FBI director admits he’s the one who essentially funneled the information that got out there about these memos that he was keeping throughout a friend at Columbia.” She wondered, “What do you say about those documents and the leaking of them?”

Napolitano replied, “I think you could make both arguments. I think you could make the argument that the former director of the FBI improperly and unlawfully; and, for a venal purpose — to protect his own reputation — leaked a government document.”

The analyst added, “You could also say he viewed it as his own note to himself which he still possessed — even though he had given a copy to his former employer — and he wanted to advance the ball of truth. I don’t know where that’s going to go.”

Certainly the legal folks who make a living at attempting to prove liars are maybe telling the truth will jump to the pro Trump (liar) position. Those who are, and have been paying attention know Trump is a dishonest manipulative individual. One who cares only about himself and to hell with the truth or anyone else.

Trump’s Big Play… As America Stands Still

America is passing through another phase of its evolution as a nation-state that arguably has grown too large for its own good. At the same time the world has become a smaller place, the result of technological advances and the changing demographics our nation is going through, the result of massive immigration. Through all of this two generations stand in fear of losing the nation of their childhood and the one they raised their children in.

While there are certainly many factors that attributed to the election of Donald J. Trump the fear that our nation was losing its WASP identity certainly ranks at the top of the factors list. The great melting pot now seems gripped with fear. Donal J. Trump, a man rightly accused of xenophobia, bigotry, misogyny, gross dishonesty, and a man lacking a clear cohesive vision appealed to their fears. Fears that were easily manipulated, especially given the regular reoccurrence of terror driven by religious extremism worldwide.

Trump was viewed by many as just what America and the west needed. A man without political experience, someone lacking in diplomacy (political correctness to the right), a man who would make the best deals for the USA, build a wall to divide us from our southern neighbors, halt immigration (especially muslims and darker skinned people), and restore our economy to the power house it once was.

Since assuming office he has essentially accomplished little of his “agenda”. Other than a stream of rather meaningless executive orders, a travel ban the courts rightly put a stop to, a healthcare bill that would result in 23 million becoming uninsured, raise premiums, and hurt his core supporters the most, a never-ending stream of tweets, insulting and alienating foes and allies alike, yanking us out of the Paris climate agreement, and becoming ever more mired in scandal and possible obstruction of justice charges the man in the big seat has done very little good for our country.

As Trump supporters watch the unfolding investigations and live testimony we hope they will finally realize the man they put in the most powerful and demanding job of the free world is both unqualified and inept for the job they elected him to do. Buyer remorse is never as good as the buyer doing due diligence before buying. But with any luck it will prevent them from making the same serious mistake in the future.
