Judge Nap: Feinstein Is ‘Correct’ on Potential Obstruction of Justice Case Against Trump



On a side note, I once got to hear Judge Nap speak and he reminded me of the kind of priest everyone was sad to see leave the parish. The guy can preach.

Gifted verbally. Warm. And a brilliant mind. (I heard him take down Hillary Clinton on the email kerfuffle and it was an remarkable rhetorical attack.)

On “America’s Newsroom,” Fox News senior judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano came down on the side of Feinstein.

“I respect Professor Dershowitz greatly. I do not know Sen. Feinstein, but she, in my view, is correct here,” he told Bill Hemmer.

He said that if Trump asked Comey to end the investigation into Flynn for a non-corrupt purpose – such as if he felt sympathy for his former national security adviser or he wanted the bureau to use its resources on more important matters – it’s not obstruction.

However, if Trump did it for a corrupt purpose – such as trying to protect himself or his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, from what Flynn might say – then it is obstruction and there is no presidential immunity, Napolitano said.
