Judge Andrew Napolitano said he was “disturbed” at the latest bombshell articleabout President Donald Trump’s effort to interfere with Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation while interviewing with Fox News host Shep Smith.
On Tuesday The New York Timespublished an in-depth article that revealed one of Trump’s attorneys discussed “possible pardons” for his former campaign chairman Paul Manafort and former national security adviser Michael Flynn.
“There is a very disturbing discussion in this article about his utilization of colleagues in Congress,” Napolitano said. “[About Trump’s allies] utilizing their subpoena power, because the Republicans controlled the House of Representatives at the time, to subpoena documents that Bob Mueller wanted to keep secret in order to interfere with Mueller or to embarrass Mueller.”
“I’ve never seen anything like this before,” he told Smith. “A sitting president of the United States using his allies in Congress to interfere with an ongoing criminal investigation. This breaks new ground.”
