Even Fox News legal analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano says that the Democrats have ‘overwhelming” evidence to impeach President Trump with.
In an interview with libertarian magazine Reason, Napolitano said, “The evidence of [Trump’s] impeachable behavior at this point, in my view, is overwhelming.” He believes the impeachment hearings have uncovered enough for four articles of impeachment. The judge then outlined the articles of impeachment that could be introduced. The first charge could be bribery.
“The second charge will be high crimes and misdemeanors, election law violation,” continued Napolitano. “The third crime will be obstruction of justice. The fourth will be interference with a witness and the fifth may be lying under oath.”
However, as a libertarian, Napolitano believes that every president in the “post-Woodrow Wilson era” has gone beyond Constitutional boundaries.
“[E]ach president has more authority than his predecessors, for the simple reason that Democratic Congresses give power to Democratic presidents and Republican Congresses give power to Republican presidents,” Napolitano told Reason. “That power stays in the presidency. So Donald Trump actually has more authority than Barack Obama did, who had more authority than George W. Bush did, etc.”
Napolitano previously said that he believed the Mueller report showed that Trump had obstructed justice. He has been a long time critic of Trump at a network that is not very critical of the president.
