Fox News legal analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano broke down the raid on President Donald Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen and thinks Jeff Sessions should never have accepted the attorney general job.
Napolitano said the government raided Cohen’s office looking for evidence of bank fraud and believes it never would have escalated to this point if Sessions had made different choices.
“[Sessions] should have never accepted the appointment,” Napolitano said. “The Russia investigation started in October of 2016 and he knew he was going to be a witness. But if he felt he had to recuse himself — Mr. President you are entitled to an attorney general in whom have you great confidence. I’m not sure if I’m the guy if I recuse myself. Half of what the DOJ does, I will have nothing to do with.”
Napolitano said Sessions is “too tentative” and lacks the demeanor and faculties to be an effective attorney general.
“The last time I was here last Thursday the president was ranting and raving about the DOJ. And quite properly so, about the DOJ not complying with subpoenas from a Republican Congress,” Napolitano concluded. “The DOJ lacks the stern management and strong will that a strong attorney general should bring because Sessions is too tentative.”
