Napolitano: Comey's Obstruction Comment 'Dangerous' for Trump

(Fox News' "Fox & Friends")

By    |   Monday, 16 April 2018 11:47 AM

Former FBI Director James Comey's Sunday interview with ABC, in which he claimed there is "certainly some evidence" President Donald Trump obstructed justice, might prove "dangerous" for Trump, Fox News commentator Andrew Napolitano told "Fox & Friends" on Monday.

Comey, when asked about Trump's alleged request Comey drop the investigation into the president's former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, said "it would depend and — and I'm just a witness in this case, not the investigator or prosecutor — it would depend upon other things that reflected on his intent."

Napolitano said Monday that although Comey's recent comments and new book are only his personal opinion, they could prove dangerous because Comey "talks to Mueller and because he knows Bob Mueller's thinking on this. We don't care if Jim Comey think the president may have obstructed justice, but if he's sending a signal that Mueller and company think that, they think it on the basis on some evidence. And that's potentially worrisome."

He added, since Comey is a witness in the investigation into Russian election interference, "they interact with each other all the time."
