Fox News Analyst Throws Trump Junior Under The Bus: His Actions Warrant A Criminal Investigation [VIDEO]

Fox News reports:

Judge Andrew Napolitano said today that political campaigns cannot accept “something of value” from a foreign person or government. The Fox News senior judicial analyst said on “America’s Newsroom” that the Trump campaign’s lawyer – if consulted – would have likely advised Donald Trump Jr. and others not to attend a meeting last spring with a Russian lawyer.

More from Mediaite:

The judicial analyst went on to note that Sekulow has been arguing there is no statute that proves Don Jr.’s actions were criminal, but pointed out that “often, these nonviolent criminal events don’t happen all at once, they happen in stages.”

“So the question is, is this enough to commence a criminal investigation?” Napolitano asked. “Answer: yes. Because it is suspicious that they met with these people, they didn’t consult a lawyer, and one of these people is a former KGB/GRU.”

“And didn’t tell anybody about it,” Napolitano continued. “Why didn’t Jared Kushner tell the FBI about it when he filled out his national security application unless he was trying to hide something?”

You’ll recall that Fox suspended Napolitano earlier this year after he parroted Trump’s claim about being wiretapped by Obama.

            The first few times I saw it I was sure it was a just trump with a wig photoshopped on or a screenshot from a sketch from the times he hosted SNL, but all it takes is a google image search to see that that is in fact trumps mother and apparently unnaturally hued skin and bad taste in wigs runs in the family.

      Broken clock and so on and so forth…..

  • This is another example of the Trump family’s ‘wheeling and dealing.’ There are patterns of ego where family members either cheated business colleagues or engaged in dubious practises. Then, if necessary, the lawyers would come in and ‘clean up.’ It is hard to believe that the people involved in inviting the Russians to Trump Tower would not have first – consulted with lawyers. They are NOT above the law.

    • Adam King

      They only bother with consulting lawyers when someone threatens to sue.

    Sean Spicer says the President is a successful businessman and can promote “made in America” even though he manufactures outside of the USA. Kind of “do as I say and not as I do” rather than “leading by example.”

      • John30013

        Yes, it’s “smart business” for “God-Emperor” Trump not to employ U.S. citizens in his businesses, but it’s a libtard conspiracy against coal miners and steel workers whose jobs have migrated offshore or been made obsolete by cleaner, cheaper forms of energy.

        Napolitano. The first time he tried to seduce me was in the mid-90’s while his family (to whom he was, and for all I know still is closeted) was in the next room; the last time was at the funeral of a college friend (THJ) of his. Always classy.

          • AC

            Awful? There was plenty hilarity surrounding everything, at least in the earlier days. For instance, the previously mentioned THJ was a senior most member of “The Committee” charged with giving out girl names. Napolitano was “Gina Napolitano” well, she was until she complained about her name and the committee reconsidered, finally agreeing reluctantly to change it…to “Gina Marie Napolitano”

    Napolitano is a jerk but it’s very interesting that WSJ. the NY Post, plus an Australian paper also owned by Murdoch, and now Pox Noise are jumping on this and criticizing Junior. Maybe this is finally the beginning of the end, but Pence has to go, too.

    • clay

      from Politico, re this afternoon’s off-camera briefing:

      “It is quite often for people who are given information during the heat of a campaign to ask what that is, that’s what simply he did,” Spicer said. “The president’s made it clear through his tweet. And there was nothing, as far as we know, that would lead anyone to believe that there was anything except for a discussion about adoption and the Magnitsky Act.”

      Emails released by Trump Jr. show that the meeting was planned with the intention of obtaining damaging information about Clinton.

      • Pat

        That criticism must have stung if they sent out Spicey instead of Suckabee. However, emails don’t lie. Just ask Dump. Won’t it be incredible if he’s taken down by an email?

      • -M-

        A) They went to discuss getting illegal help from Russia.
        B) Discussing the Magnitsky act (sanctions imposed against certain Russians and organizations) would be bad enough.
        C) Until the press was about to release his incriminating emails Jr said the discussion was just about adoption, which is code for discussing the Magnitsky act because Russia’s ban on US adoption of Russian orphans was in response to that and getting the Magnitsky act’s sanctions removed one way or another has been the lawyer Ms V…’s task for years.

    It’s kind of amusing to see these folks finally try to inch away from tRump and his klan, while sane people and #resist-ers have been calling out the tRump bullshit for months (or years, actually).

  • FormerMainer

    The “something of value” from a “foreign person” prohibition has some serious implications for undocumented persons. I assume this means that ex-pats and undocumented folks cannot contribute to or volunteer for a campaign?

    Does this mean this law was broken a lot during the campaign?

    http://www.mercurynews.com/2016/10/05/undocumented-immigrants-flex-political-muscle-in-presidential-election/

    • BobSF_94117

      1) Ex-pats remain American citizens. You should look up what “foreign person” means.

      2) The article you link to specifically talks about voter registration, which is NOT working for a campaign.

      Try harder

      • FormerMainer

        1. Often, but depends upon how the speaker/writer is using the document.

        2. The article reads “Presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and fellow Democrat Sen. Bernie
        Sanders incorporated undocumented residents in their campaigns to get
        out the Latino vote.”

        • BobSF_94117

          1) If you mean “ex-pats” are non-citizen residents, they’re allowed to participate in campaigns

          2) Get-out-the-vote is not the same as campaigning for a particular candidate.

          • FormerMainer

            1. To a degree, but there is no clear exception in the statute for those individuals.

            2. But it is something of value…that is why candidates want it and why people volunteer…

          • BobSF_94117

            1) Yes there is. The law bans non-citizens and non-residents.

            2) It is something of value to the country to get people to vote. It is not a campaign function.

  • Christine

    I predicted that the GOP would be ready to get rid of Trump within 6 months. Right on schedule. I don’t for one second think any of these FOX pundits is allowed to say anything without passing it by the powers that be.
