Judge Andrew Napolitano Tuesday questioned why the FBI took time to interrogate former national security adviser Michael Flynn, when it already had transcripts of all of his conversations with a Russian ambassador, saying it was obvious the federal agency wanted to "trap him."

"When the FBI interrogated Gen. Flynn in the White House on Jan. 24, it already had transcripts of every one of the general's conversations with Ambassador [Sergey] Kislyak, of which we now know there five, from between the day of the election and the day of the inauguration," the Fox News senior judicial analyst said on the "Fox & Friends" program.

"So, if they had the transcripts of those conversations, what was the purpose of interrogating the general?" he continued, "To trap him, which they succeeded in doing."

Flynn has pleaded guilty to one count of lying to the FBI, and Napolitano said he believes the FBI was wrong for trapping the retired general with its tactics.

"The government should not be in the business of trapping people," Napolitano said. "The Supreme Court says it's okay, and the government does it all the time. Why would they do this to the president's principal foreign policy adviser?"

Flynn had been "at the ear" of President Donald Trump since June 2015, when the New York billionaire announced his presidential campaign.

"So why would the FBI be in a position to do that? We don't know the answer," said Napolitano. "The flip side of this is the general used to be in charge of all the spies in the military. He was the head of the Defense Intelligence Agency.

"Thousands of people were running surveillance to keep America safe under him. How could he not know that the FBI had transcripts of these conversations?"
