Fox Analyst Goes Against His Network And Urges For A Criminal Investigation On Trump Jr
Trump-friendly Fox News usually have their own agenda and praise the president, but senior judicial analyst Andrew Napolitano suggested on Monday that Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner and Paul Manafort had put themselves in legal jeopardy after seeking an enemy to receive information on Hillary Clinton.
“If I could have advised the president or Donald Trump Jr., I would have said, ‘Go to [Trump attorney] Don McGahn,’” Napolitano opined. “He would have said, ‘You want to talk to a an ex-KGB-GRU agent and a person represented as a Russian government lawyer — even though we now know she wasn’t — tell the FBI, don’t bring those guys in here.’”
Napolitano pointed out that “it is a crime to receive something of value when you are a campaign official from a foreign person or foreign government.”
The Fox News analyst went on to suggest that Trump Jr. and other Trump officials who went to Russian government officials and received information about Clinton could be guilty of a felony.
“Often these non-violent criminal events don’t happen all at once, they happen in stages,” he continued. “Is this enough to commence a criminal investigation? Answer: yes. Because it is suspicious that they met with these people, that they didn’t consult a lawyer, that one of these people is former KGB-GRU — that’s the Russian intelligence arm.”
“Why didn’t Jared Kushner tell the FBI about it unless he was trying to hide something?” Napolitano observed. “Donald Trump would be better served if he weren’t related to the people serving him.”
