Fox news senior judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano warned President Donald Trump on “Cavuto Coast To Coast” Tuesday to tread lightly when he sits down with Robert Mueller.

“It’s a very dangerous environment for [Trump] because any white lie, even one that is not intentional, can result in indictment,” Napolitano said. “This is a strange environment that the courts have permitted, where the government can lie to you, the government can use trickery and deception and traps. But if you lie to the government, this is a Martha Stewart case, you can be indicted.”


Napolitano said Trump will likely avoid an indictment but could face further legal issues if Mueller decides to entrust the investigation to a Democratically controlled Congress.

“Mueller could get an indictment and the question is, is anybody going to prosecute [Trump] while he’s a sitting president,” Napolitano added. “Most Justice Department regulations say no. You file the indictment to stop the running of the statute of limitations, but you can’t prosecute until after he leaves office.”

“Or he could not indict the president, shift this over to the House of Representatives, which if Democrats take control this November — absolutely, all bets are off,” he concluded.
