‘Napolitano is a fool!’ diGenova blasts judge for telling Shep Smith Trump just admitted to a crime

Former U.S. Attorney Joe diGenova said what a lot of folks have been thinking of late when it comes to Fox News judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano, that the judge is “a fool.”

Appearing Tuesday on Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” diGenova was asked by the show’s namesake about Napolitano claiming that President Trump broke the law during his call with the president of Ukraine.

“Is it a crime? You’re a former federal prosecutor,” Carlson asked.

“Well, I think Judge Napolitano is a fool,” diGenova replied. “And I think what he said today is foolish.”

 

“No, it is not a crime,” he continued. “Let me underscore emphatically that nothing that the president said on that call or what we think he said on that call constitutes a crime. And even if he had said you’re not going to get the money, it would not be a crime.”

Calling attention to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s announcement Tuesday of a formal impeachment inquiry, diGenova called the California Democrat on her “head fake.”

“I was watching Nancy Pelosi today as she struggled to keep her dentures in her mouth giving this statement, called this an official impeachment inquiry. It is not,” the former prosecutor told Carlson. “The only way you can have an official impeachment inquiry is by a resolution being passed on the floor of the House calling for an impeachment inquiry and authorizing an investigation. That has not occurred. What she did today was a head fake to placate the nuts on her left.”

As for Napolitano’s claim, he was appearing alongside Shepard Smith when he was asked if Trump committed a crime.

“The president admits that on the phone call with the president of the Ukraine he requested that the president of the Ukraine investigate his 2020 political rival, Joe Biden,” Smith said. “Is that a crime?”

 

“It is a crime for the president to solicit aid for his campaign from a foreign government,” Napolitano responded.

“So that to which the president has admitted is in and of itself a crime,” Smith pressed.

“Yes,” Napolitano said, unequivocally. “This is the same crime for which the Trump Organization was investigated by Bob Mueller, who decided not to seek an indictment because there wasn’t enough evidence.”

Back to diGenova, he spoke on what he saw as the Democratic Party’s motivation

“They are scrambling for a theme and a narrative. They have gone everywhere from Russian hoax to Russian collusion and now they’ve come to this,” he said. “And you may note today they said they wanted to see the transcript. And when it was announced that the transcript was going to be put out tomorrow, they said that really doesn’t matter.”

“This is about power,” diGenova added. “Democrats want to control the House, the Senate, and the presidency. They think they should have won the 2016 election. They think in their bizarre brains that they did because she got more popular votes. They don’t like the electoral college. They don’t like due process. They don’t like a lot of things in our constitution which is why they always want to change it.”

And Speaker Pelosi did not escape diGenova’s ire.

“This is lunacy,” he insisted. “You are watching a great political party, historically the Democratic party, devolve into a bunch of screwballs because they want all the power. That speech today by Pelosi was an embarrassment for a Speaker of the House because it was mostly lies and mostly made up.”
