Napolitano: Federal Prosecutors Have Evidence Trump ‘Committed a Felony’

Wednesday on Fox News Channel’s “Shepard Smith Reporting,” network legal analyst Andrew Napolitano said in the prosecutor’s court filing in the case against Trump personal lawyer Michael Cohen, they revealed they have evidence that President Donald Trump “committed a felony.”

Napolitano said, “Career prosecutors here in New York City have evidence that the president of the United States committed a felony by ordering and paying Michael Cohen to break the law. How do we know that? They told that to a federal judge. Under the rules, they can’t tell that to a federal judge unless they have that hardcore evidence. Under the rules, they can’t tell that to a federal judge unless they intend to do something with that evidence.”

He added, “The felony is paying Michael Cohen to commit a felony. It’s pretty basic. A hires B to shoot someone. A is as liable as if he had pulled the trigger. You pay someone to commit a crime, they commit the crime, you’re liable, criminally liable for their commission of that crime. That’s what the prosecutors told the federal judge.”
