Fox News senior judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano said the Inspector General report surrounding James Comey may have been scrubbed to remove damaging information about the federal government.
“We really have to see the whole report. This is going to be a long and detailed report,” Napolitano said on “Fox & Friends” Thursday. “We’re looking for law-breaking. Did [Comey] lie under oath when he gave different versions of events. Events involving Andrew McCabe. And we’re looking for very serious, probably politically motivated errors of judgment. Like we can’t prosecute Mrs. Clinton for espionage because we can’t prove intent.” (RELATED: Judge Napolitano Says There Is ‘No Question’ Democrats Tried To Frame Trump)
Napolitano thinks it’s possible DOJ officials tried to scrub the report of damaging information and said the American people deserve to know the full truth.
“If Joe [diGenova] is correct, this is an outrage and it is a neutering of a very highly respected inspector general who was appointed by George W. Bush and by Barack Obama,” Napolitano continued.
“If [Inspector General Horowitz] gives a different version under oath than he gave in writing — then the scrubbing is going to become the issue. Wait a minute, you found this about Jim Comey. You’re telling us about it now, but didn’t put it in the report? Was it in the report and did you take it out? And if you took it out did somebody tell you to take it out?”
“I don’t know where this is going to go. I’m glad we have these leaks. Some leaks are good leaks,” Napolitano concluded. “The public needs to know that this might not be a truthful document.”
