If it turns out the accusations that President Donald Trump pushed Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden's son Hunter and his overseas activities are true, it would be "far more serious" than anything special counsel Robert Mueller uncovered, Fox News' Judge Andrew Napolitano said Monday. 

"If there was a quid pro quo. It does appear as though a quarter of a billion dollars in defensive weaponry was held back for a period of time while these eight conversations were going on between the president," Napolitano told Fox Business' David Asman, who was standing in for Neil Cavuto Monday.  

Asman noted reporting that there was no "specific quid pro quo" mentioned in the Trump call, but claimed there was some involved when in the accusations that Biden, when vice president, had played a role in the firing of former Ukranian prosecutor general Viktor Shokin, including threatening to end aid unless Shokin dropped an investigation into his son. 

"If you are the President of the United States and making a conversation that you know your intelligence community is listening to, of course, you’re not going to articulate a quid pro quo," Napolitano argued. "You’ll just make the quid pro quo happen.”

The claims being made against Biden also probably mark the end of Biden's hopes of becoming president, Napolitano said.


"But (it) doesn’t diminish one iota what the current president is doing" if it turns out that reports of what is in a whistleblower complaint, which is said to contain details about Trump's conversations with Zelensky, turn out to be true. 

"Under the law, it has to be revealed," said Napolitano. "If true, this is an act of corruption."
