Law & Crime reports:
President Donald Trump‘s attorney Rudy Giuliani, apparently transitioning into a roving attack dog role with ease, criticized Fox News senior judicial analyst Andrew Napolitano on Thursday. Giuliani said the was “something wrong” with Napolitano’s “bitter attitude.”
Giuliani immediately went there, bringing up the fact that Napolitano was not nominated to the Supreme Court of the United States. Giuliani was responding to a video of Napolitano pointing out that there were 127 documented communications between the Trump campaign and Russians.
From an April report by Newsweek:
Napolitano relayed a story about a meeting he had with Trump during his transition into the White House following his November 2016 election.
The longtime Fox News personality said he did not ask Trump if he could be on the Supreme Court, but instead was there to counsel the president on who should replace the late Justice Antonin Scalia, who died earlier that year.
Napolitano said he suggested the person who would ultimately fill that position, Judge Neil Gorsuch, but that Trump became suspicious and said, “sounds like you’re describing yourself.” In an odd power trip, Trump then demanded Napolitano offer him a “spiel” to sell himself for the position.
There’s something wrong with Napolitano and his now bitter attitude @realDonaldTrump. Maybe he never understood why POTUS didn’t appoint him to Supreme Court. He’s too smart to confuse communications with conspiracy. https://t.co/cKNV0Y5njY
