Fox legal analyst Andrew Napolitano is warning the White House and Trump supporters that the full Mueller report probably does contain evidence pointing to a conspiracy and obstruction that will be politically damaging to the president.
Appearing on Fox Business Network’s “Cavuto Coast to Coast” Wednesday afternoon, Napolitano said remarks from House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) that there was “undoubtedly” collusion between Trump and Russia are very probably correct:
“We saw on Sunday a four-page summary of a 700-page report. The 700-page report is a summary of two million pages of documents, of raw evidence.”
The former judge continued:
“In the 700-page summary of the two million pages of raw evidence, there is undoubtedly some evidence of a conspiracy and some evidence of obstruction of justice, just not enough evidence—I’m thinking the way I believe Congressman Schiff is thinking—according to Attorney General Barr, not enough evidence to prove it beyond a reasonable doubt, which is the standard.”
Napolitano also said that since Attorney General William Barr didn’t definitively say there was “no evidence of conspiracy and no evidence of obstruction,” then it stands to reason there must be some evidence, and that can be used to destroy Trump politically.
From what we’ve seen so far from the attorney general, Napolitano also noted, we can extrapolate that some decisions were made by Special Counsel Robert Mueller and Barr:
“On the conspiracy charge…Mueller, Rosenstein, Barr are on the same page. There is something there, but it is not enough to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
“On the obstruction charge, Mueller did what a lot of prosecutors do—they kick it upstairs. Let the boss decide this. The evidence is equivocal. There is evidence of obstruction. There is evidence of no obstruction. They’re equivocal.”
Keep in mind this is a Fox News analyst saying these things. He can sense that there’s something damaging in the Mueller report, and even if it doesn’t lead to Trump being indicted or impeached, it could well be enough to ruin Trump’s chances of re-election.
So while Trump may have been doing a victory dance on Sunday, by this time next week he could be facing the prospect of having been implicated in a conspiracy with Russia and obstruction of justice. And that could well signal the beginning of the end of Donald Trump’s presidency.
