There are few people with legal knowledge like Judge Andrew Napolitano.
On Fox News, he drops that knowledge in a way that the average American can understand.
And he just gave Trump the best advice possible to stop Robert Mueller.
Trying Times For Mueller
After leading a witch hunt for over a year with the goal to take down Trump, Robert Mueller is grasping at straws.
Although he now has former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort on the brink of possibly being prosecuted, his alleged crimes have nothing to do with Trump. Mueller is currently trying to pin bank fraud on Manafort, nothing even close to collusion with Russia.
So while that will be seen as a victory in the media, Mueller wants to gain an actual victory that he can feel good about.
One of the ways he is trying to do that is by having an interview with President Trump.
But as it has been pointed out many times by many people close to Trump, the president continues to be interested in following through to clear his name.
Because of that, Fox News’ personality Judge Andrew Napolitano spoke out about why he believes that is the worst thing Trump could do right now.
Advice From A Wise Judge
In an op-ed posted on Fox News’ website, Napolitano explained exactly why.
He pointed out how considering that Trump will be under oath, the goal of the prosecutors will be to incriminate him, not try to clear his name.
“When prosecutors want to talk to a person they are investigating, the talk is intended to help the prosecutors, not the subject of the investigation,” Judge Napolitano stated. “So why should Trump engage in a process that could only help those pursuing him?”
That is a point that Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani has made in the past, but perhaps not as elegantly laid out as Napolitano.
With this advice coming from Napolitano, Trump is very likely to listen.
The president is known to be a fan of him and has quoted him on Twitter in the past.
But along with giving advice specific to the meeting, Judge Napolitano explained how Trump and his legal team refuse all negotiations with Mueller.
He’s Not A Friend
The one point Judge Napolitano is trying to stress is that Mueller isn’t a friend to Trump.
In his position, he is the furthest thing from a friend, with his entire job being proving that Trump broke the law and colluded with Russia during the 2016 election.
Mueller has spent the entire past year of his life trying to prove that and will do anything in his power to do so just to justify his existence over the past year.
As the investigation rages on, the most valuable thing to Mueller is Donald Trump’s own words.
If he had something on Trump already, he would have brought it up.
Now his job is to find or possibly manufacture something to pin on Trump.
