Fox News Judge Just Threw Trump Under The Bus In Bezos Blackmail Case: ‘Bad News For The President’
Fox News senior judicial analyst Andrew Napolitano warned of “bad news” for Donald Trump while discussing the alleged blackmailing against Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos.
During an interview with Fox Business, Napolitano pointed out Trump’s connection to AMI, The National Enquirer‘s parent company, which allegedly blackmailed Bezos.
“Here’s the essence of what Jeff Bezos claims,” he explained. “He was admonished by AMI’s people: ‘If you continue your investigation — wherever it goes — we will publish more photos of you.’”
“Now that is an act of blackmail,” Napolitano noted. “Because it is an effort to prevent him from doing what he has a right to do by the threat of exposing something.”
Napolitano then claimed that it is possible that the White House was involved in the alleged crime.
“Because of the close relationship between [AMI CEO] David Pecker and Donald Trump,” he remarked. “I’ve seen no evidence of this. But that is the implication in the media, that if Jeff Bezos continues with his investigation, that’s where it will lead.”
Napolitano the insisted that AMI’s threat “clearly was blackmail.”
“This is very troublesome for AMI because they signed an agreement with the federal government in the Michael Cohen case,” the former judge continued. “They must be as pure as Cesar’s wife for the next three years. Otherwise, the agreement not to prosecute them is no longer in place.”
“If they are prosecuted for being part of the Michael Cohen conspiracy, [that’s] bad news for the president.”
