Lindsey Graham Shuts Down Judge Napolitano’s Dubious Trump Theory, Smacks Sally Yates With Rebuke


Robert Mueller rendered his verdict. As did Attorney general Bill Barr. As did former hero of the left Rod Rosenstein.

They all came to the conclusion that Trump did not obstruct or collude. True, Trump was pissed and he vented early and often.

Trump thinks out loud - he did this to General Mattis and many others. He weighs options with you in real time. Many are not used to this arrangement.


In any event, Lindsey Graham did not like Judge Nap’s take on the whole obstruction issue so he went on Fox and shut him down.

From The Daily Caller: GOP Senator Lindsey Graham countered Fox News analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano’s interpretation of whether or not President Donald Trump committed obstruction of justice directly after Napolitano’s Monday night Fox News appearance.

Appearing before Graham on “The Story with Martha MacCallum,” Napolitano had argued that any attempt “to interfere with the government” is illegal, even if that attempt amounted to nothing.

“If your purpose is to interfere with the government in order to save yourself, not to help the government, then you have committed the crime of obstruction,” he said.

I like Judge Napolitano, but is he completely 100% wrong. The obstruction of justice pertains to colluding with the Russians, not firing Comey. The theory is that you fire Comey to stop the Russian investigation.

What do we know after the Mueller report? There was no collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians. There is no underlying crime. What do we also know? That the Trump administration gave the special counsel a million documents, allowed people to testify, McGahn for 30 hours and never claimed executive privilege.

“To the Sally Yates’ of the world,” Graham said, charging Trump “with obstructing justice when there was no underlying crime to obstruct” is “ridiculous” and “absurd.”

“He cooperated fully with the special counsel and finally, name one event that Donald Trump engaged in that impeded the Mueller investigation.”
