Fox News legal analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano zeroed in on former National Security Adviser Susan Rice for an email she wrote in 2017, attempting to shield former President Barack Obama from legal and political scrutiny.
The email, which Rice addressed to herself on inauguration day, documented a meeting with Obama about the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s (FBI) probe of President Donald Trump and said Obama had handled everything “by the book.”
“Only one person could have told her to write the email and she keeps falling on her sword for him,” Napolitano said Tuesday on “Fox & Friends.” “Remember when she went all over the networks with the crazy narrative about Benghazi, was caused by a video? We know that’s not true. And the comments she made about Bergdahl serving with honor and that’s not true. But these things were stated to back up statements previously made by her boss Barack Obama.”
Napolitano was asked why Rice would write such an email and he said it could be an effort to protect Obama out of blind loyalty and then accused the federal government of trying to derail Trump’s presidential campaign.
“It might be an incredible sense of loyalty to him,” Napolitano said. “She apparently was a participant at that meeting. So now the question arises, what was agreed to at the meeting?”
“There’s so many moving parts to all this,” he concluded. “We’ve been doing this stuff for about four weeks in a row. Every week more just keeps coming out. It becomes more and more apparent that there was a group of people in the federal government using the machinery of government to frustrate Donald Trump becoming president.”
