Fox News analyst Andrew Napolitano lashed out at President Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani for suggesting that the hush payments that Michael Cohen made to keep women quiet about alleged affairs were not campaign contributions, despite the different conclusion coming out of the Southern District of New York office.
Napolitano, who’s often a cheerleader for Trump on Fox, said it was “strange” that Giuliani would criticize the office that he used to oversee and argued the classification of the hush payments as campaign contributions is “not debatable”
“It’s very strange to hear Rudy criticizing his former office,” Napolitano said on Fox’s “America’s Newsroom” Monday. “They persuaded a federal judge and the lawyers for Michael Cohen that the hundreds of thousands of dollars that were paid to silence the women who say they had relations with the President, which the President has denied, was either a campaign contribution or an expenditure by the campaign. Both of which are crimes.”
“I think Rudy should understand that. I believe that the President and Rudy mock the government at their peril,” he continued. “That’s how serious these allegations are. … It is not debatable.”
