Legal experts school Rudy Giuliani on obstruction after he attacks Judge Napolitano


President Donald Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani insisted that his client did not commit obstruction of justice while attacking Fox News legal analyst Andrew Napolitano on Friday, only to get totally schooled by several legal experts.

Last week, Napolitano wrote an op-ed explaining that the ten instances of obstruction listed in the Mueller report are indeed obstruction even if there is no underlying crime.

“Obstruction is a rare crime that is rarely completed,” he wrote. “Stated differently, the obstructer need not succeed in order to be charged with obstruction. That’s because the statute itself prohibits attempting to impede or interfere with any government proceeding for a corrupt or self-serving purpose.

“Thus, if my neighbor tackles me on my way into a courthouse in order to impede a jury from hearing my testimony, and, though delayed, I still make it to the courthouse and testify, then the neighbor is guilty of obstruction because he attempted to impede the work of the jury that was waiting to hear me,” he continued. “The nearly universal view of law enforcement, however, is that the obstruction statute prohibits all attempted self-serving interference with government investigations or proceedings.”

Therefore, Trump committed obstruction because he ordered former White House counsel Don McGahn to fire Mueller and repeatedly tried to undermine the federal probe.

So, Giuliani attacked Napolitano for laying out the legal facts.

And in response, legal experts crushed Rudy like a bug.

Attorney Jennifer Taub struck the first blow.

Then attorney George Conway cited specific DOJ guidelines and legal statutes while rebuking him.

Former federal prosecutor Mimi Rocah, who worked at the Southern District of New York office, capped off the humiliation.

Giuliani fell on his face with this desperate effort to defend Trump, demonstrating that he should be disbarred and has no business ever serving or working in the legal field ever again. It also underscores the importance of why Mueller and McGahn must testify before Congress. Because once they testify, Trump is toast.
