Fox news senior judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano said special counsel Bob Mueller’s tactics of squeezing witnesses for information amounts to “bribery,” Thursday on “Fox & Friends.”
“I have argued that prosecuting somebody like they did to [former national security adviser] Mike Flynn, squeezing him, reducing his jail exposure so he’ll say what you want him to say is a form of bribery. I’ve been arguing that for years,” Napolitano said.
Napolitano said he is in the minority in the legal field and said the courts have deemed Mueller’s tactics to be perfectly legal, despite the ethical implications.
“I am in the distinct minority in the legal and judicial community,” Napolitano concluded. “The courts have said this is fine. If defense counsel gave a witness so much as a lollipop, the lawyer and the witness would be indicted for bribery.”
