Andrew Napolitano: ‘Russiagate’ Investigation Shows Prosecutors’ Terrible ‘Standard Operating Procedure’
If you want to see how terribly prosecutors in America can operate, take a look at what is happening in the ‘Russiagate’ investigation being run by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, says Fox News Senior Judicial Analyst Andrew Napolitano. Napolitano, interviewed by host Kennedy last week at Fox Business, explains that the investigation is using a “standard operating procedure” of threats and bribes — even though regular Americans would be prosecuted for making such threats and bribes.
The threats and bribes tactics, Napolitano explains, are being used to “squeeze” people with threats of prosecution and punishment that are coupled with bribes of relief from such threatened actions if the individuals help with the prosecution of someone “up the totem pole,” potentially up to President Donald Trump.
Think about this. This is federal prosecution. This is the use of the arm of the government to take away human liberty. And are they interested in truth? Are they interested in justice? Or are they just interested in who’s going to say what about whom so we can keep going up that totem pole until we reach the guy in the Oval Office.
And Napolitano makes it clear in the interview that the problem extends far beyond this one investigation. “I lived with this when I was on the bench,” exclaims Napolitano, referring to his time as a New Jersey state judge when he would “talk about it almost every day.”
