Fox News senior judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano said he was disturbed by FBI Director Christopher Wray’s refusal to cooperate with Congress in their mission to obtain certain documents.
“What I saw yesterday that startled me the most, it wasn’t the Democrats getting their narrative out of this, that this has nothing to do with Russia or the Republicans getting their narrative out of this. That the investigation of Hillary was so wide of a mark, we’ve never seen anything like it. It was obviously motivated by politics” Napolitano said on “Fox & Friends” Tuesday.
“I saw a message from Chris Wray, the director of the FBI to Devin Nunes, ‘we are not giving up documents that are protected by privilege.’ What’s protected by privilege? The Mueller documents that were shown to a grand jury that reflect the thoughts and impressions of investigators and prosecutors, or where witnesses were promised confidentiality,” he said.
Napolitano said the FBI is running interference and will likely take the case to a federal judge to stop certain documents from becoming public.
“When that subpoena arrives today at the DOJ, they are going to go, I think, across the street to a federal court to ask that it be quashed,” Napolitano concluded. “That means that a federal judge will get to look at all this stuff, tens of thousands of pages here in private and decide what stays secret and what the Congress gets.”
