Andrew Napolitano believes James Comey’s highly anticipated testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee will show a different side of the fired former FBI director.
In a public Senate session on Thursday, Comey will be questioned about his encounters with President Trump and the FBI investigation into alleged collusion between his election campaign and Russia.
“You’re going to see a different Jim Comey,” Judge Napolitano said on “Fox & Friends” Wednesday.
“You’re going to see a chastened, fact-centered witness, not an FBI director lecturing the country and the committee on the laws,” he added. “He’s not going to make judgments. He’s not going to make legal conclusions. He’s going to say what he heard, what he said, what he saw and what he thought.”
But the senior judicial analyst for Fox News was surprised that special counsel Robert Mueller is even allowing the testimony from Comey, who was fired by Trump last month.
“The last thing in the world a prosecutor wants from one of his witnesses is to have the witness testify in another forum where the prosecutor isn’t even going to be present,” Napolitano said of Mueller who is heading up an independent investigation into Russia and the Trump campaign.
“That’s what’s going to happen tomorrow,” Napolitano pointed out. “Mueller’s not going to be there to say ‘Hey Jim, don’t answer that.'”
Napolitano thought the president’s reported nomination Wednesday of Christopher Wray to replace the FBI chief will “take the wind out of the sails” of the upcoming testimonies.
“The timing, politically, is brilliant if it was timed intentionally,” he said.
