Fox News senior judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano doesn’t think former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort will turn on President Donald Trump, despite special counsel Bob Mueller’s efforts to bribe him.

“The government for years has been prosecuting people just to squeeze them, to get information out of them, to testify against somebody who’s a bigger target,” Napolitano said on “Fox & Friends” Tuesday. “As reprehensible as this is, because it’s a form of bribery, say what we want to hear and we’ll go easy on you, it’s a form of as I said bribery. But the courts have accepted that and there’s no question that’s why they’re after Paul Manafort.”

WATCH:

The government will continue to put as much pressure as they can on Manafort but in the end, he will continue to hold strong, Napolitano said.

“They seem to think if they can put as much pressure on him as possible, he’ll tell them something that they want to know against their real target, the president of the United States,” he added. “I honestly don’t think Manafort will [fold].”
