For them to have stooped so low is a complete disgrace to this great country…
Fox News resident anti-President Donald Trump talking heads Judge Andrew Napolitano and Bret Baier are on the attack again.
The two spoke after Special Counsel Robert Mueller gave a statement on Wednesday in which he explained there was no collusion.
“This was not – as the president says time and time again – no collusion, no obstruction. It was much more nuanced than that,” Baier said.
“He said specifically they couldn’t find evidence to move forward with the crime of collusion for the investigation of the Trump campaign.
“He said specifically if they had found that the president did not commit a crime on obstruction, they would have said that, and then went into specific details about the DOJ policy and why they couldn’t move forward with anything else than their decision.”
“It was not anywhere as clear-cut as Attorney General Bill Barr. In fact, it was almost exactly the opposite: not clear-cut.,” he said.
Apparently Baier is unfamiliar with the American principle of innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
If American citizens charged with a crime had to rely on a prosecutor to find them innocent then there would not be anyone found innocent.
Napolitano said that for the Democrats Mueller’s speech “opens the door for the Democrats the pounce” on impeachment.
He said that Muelle’s message was “We had evidence that he [Trump] committed a crime, but we couldn’t charge him because he’s the President of the United States.”
“This statement is 180 degrees from the 4-page statement Bill Barr issued at the time he first saw the report,” he said.
Napolitano said that Mueller’s speech was a “parting shot” because “he didn’t say there was no conspiracy, he just said we were not able to establish it beyond a reasonable doubt.”
In other words he did what every prosecutor in the United States is supposed to do. If you could prove a crime prove it, otherwise there is no crime.
