Judge Andrew Napolitano Slams Trump: He ‘Wanted Dirt On Biden’

Published

Former New Jersey Superior Court Judge and Fox News legal analyst Andrew Napolitano ripped into President Donald Trump on Thursday, saying it’s clear that Trump “wanted dirt on [former Vice President Joe Biden]” during his now-infamous July phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

“I think the Democrats moved the ball forward yesterday,” Napolitano said.

However, the frequent Trump critic admitted that the testimony of House Democrats’ star witness was hearsay.

“The most devastating testimony did involve the president but it was hearsay. It was the conversation recounted by Ambassador Taylor that his aide overheard Ambassador Sondland talking to the president,” Napolitano said, referring to former U.S. Ambassador Gordon Sondland, who is set to testify next week.

WATCH:

When Fox & Friends co-host Ainsley Earhardt asked Napolitano if Taylor’s testimony meant Democrats’ entire case against Trump was based on “opinion and hearsay,” Napolitano disagreed with the assertion.

“Everybody does have their own opinion. But, if you look at the big picture, there doesn’t seem to be any dispute but that the president wanted dirt on Biden and the president was willing to hold up military aid in order to get it,” Napolitano said.

House Democrats held their first round of public hearings Wednesday since formalizing their impeachment inquiry of Trump at the end of last month.

A version of this story appears on the Daily Caller website.

    Dear Judge….you had the limelight, many like myself enjoyed your show, until…but when you moved to far left with speculations and negative opinions, we lost respect for you. Take A seat.

  • Dean says:

    If the legal system is trying to convict someone of a crime, it isn’t called “looking for dirt” on someone, it’s called “gathering evidence “ Joe Biden is not a political candidate untill he is chosen by his party. He is a criminal and all evidence against him should be used against him in a court of law. The same goes for his son hunter.

  • Matt says:

    Nap has gone full left with his insane remarks. He is a total disgrace.

  • Vincent says:

    He is just a retired Superior Court judge. That is the lowest level of judge. What does he know? I am a retired lawyer and I probably know about as much federal law he does. He should go the way of his lackey, Shepard Smith.

  • FRED says:

    hell, he already had the dirt, just needed it clarified as to who, when and where

  • Errol musk says:

    Napolitano will do anything to get coverage. Since this play-play judge was denied a position at the WH he’s been going at the President left right and center.

  • Nancy says:

    I couldn’t care less whether Trump wanted the scoop on Biden or not. Most of his supporters don’t care either.

  • Jeff Harmon says:

    SHUT UP SHORTY

  • george peters says:
