Judge Andrew Napolitano on Thursday had a message for President Donald Trump — "pick up that telephone and resolve" the conflict between Congress and your own administration.
Napolitano made the comments during an interview on Fox News' "Fox & Friends" morning program, one that is a must-see for the ever-watching president. Judge Nap was analyzing the discord between Republican branches regarding documents that Congress covets that the Department of Justice has been slow to produce.
"This is getting very serious," Napolitano told the panel. "This conflict between a Republican Congress and a Republican managed Department of Justice and — the president of the United States should pick up that telephone and resolve this.
"The last time we had a dispute like this it was over 'Fast and Furious' and a Republican House of Representatives held a Democratic Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt," Napolitano said. "What happened as a result of contempt? Nothing. They didn't even get the documents. Because they don't pursue these things."
The DOJ late Wednesday finally produced the two-page memo — narrowly redacted — to the House Intelligence panel after committee frontman Rep. Devin Nunes threatened Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray with contempt and impeachment.
But the committee still seeks more than a million document pertaining to the FBI's investigation into Hillary Clinton's private email server.
"Congress, not just Devin Nunes' committee, the House of Representatives should subpoena a person, Chris Wray, Jeff Sessions, whoever has control over the whole thing," Napolitano said. "And if that person doesn't produce the documents, that person should be held in contempt.
"I don't think Congress is serious about wanting these documents. It wouldn't be taking 14 months," Napolitano said.
