Skip to comments.Judge Andrew Napolitano: Trump's Senate impeachment trial -- What does it take to remove a president?

The abuse consists of his efforts to extract a personal political "favor" from the president of Ukraine as a precondition to the delivery of $391 million in military aid. The favor he wanted was an announcement of a Ukrainian investigation of former Vice President Joseph R. Biden and his son Hunter.
The Government Accountability Office -- a nonpartisan entity in the federal government that monitors how the feds spend tax revenue -- has concluded that Trump's request for a favor was a violation of law because only Congress can impose conditions on government expenditures. So, when the president did that, he usurped Congress' role and acted unlawfully.
Federal election laws proscribe as criminal the mere solicitation of help for a political campaign from a foreign national or government. There is no dispute that Trump did this. In fact, the case for this is stronger now than it was when the House impeached him last year. Since then, more evidence, which Trump tried to suppress, has come to light.
That evidence consists of administration officials' emails that were obtained by the media pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act. Those emails demonstrate conclusively that Trump ordered a halt on the release of the $391 million within minutes of his favor request, and the aid sat undistributed until congressional pressure became too much for Trump to bear.
When the House Select Committee on Intelligence sought the emails unearthed by the press and then sought testimony from their authors, Trump thumbed his nose at the House. Instead of complying with House subpoenas or challenging them in court, Trump's folks threw them in a drawer. Earlier this week, his lawyers argued that those actions were lawful

better quesiton is- what does it take to get napalitano fired from fox news?
“What does it take to impeach a President?”
A credible accusation, not a made up hysterical accusation based on strained reasoning
Hey Nipplehead, how about a Real Frikkin Crime!!! Like Giving Weapons to a Named Enemy in the War on Drugs, the Cartels.
BS. Federal "judges" are doing it all the time these days.
The instant Napolitano appears on Fox I immediately change the channel. I then return three minutes later. I doubt it makes a difference, but hope that if enough do the same, it might.
Federal election laws proscribe as criminal the mere solicitation of help for a political campaign from a foreign national or government. There is no dispute that Trump did this.
Really? He did this merely because it would help his political campaign. And you know this how?
Why were people not prosecuted for assembling the Steele Dossier? That is much more obviously a case of colluding with foreign members of government to destroy a political candidate.
Nap is a rat tool -moving on
Same thing it took to get rid of his girlfriend Shepherd Smith I'd imagine. Too much mascara. Lol!
Judge Napolitano is the last person that should be talking about the impeachment. He was a strong supporter of the president until Trump told him no way would he be considered for a seat on the supreme court. Since that time he has vilified the president every day for any number of reasons.

What color is Napalitano’s hair these days?
there are several people we do that to- shep was one, juan, heraldo- marie harf- wallace- niel cavuto- Jessica on outnumbered- leslie-
There’s too many to list or remember right now- basically we just watch a few minutes of some of the better shows UNTIL they have on these leftist sandinistas
So why is Hillary Clinton not in jail for the Steele Dossier then? Steele is British and parts of the fake dossier was created in Russia.
What does it take?
‘High crimes and misdemeanors’
GAO is not non Partisan. it is currently run by an Obama appointee. That it released it supposed “report” the same day the Impeachment was finally delivered tot he US Senate indicates this is a PR stunt staged by the Democrat Fascists Party
The OMB, which actually manged the funds, says the GAO report is completely fraudulent with no basis in fact.
The same GAO found Obama broke the law 17 times. Why was he not impeached?
That a supposed “Judge” is this incompetent about the basic facts of Due Process and the Rule of Law is despicable
“The Government Accountability Office — a nonpartisan entity in the federal government that monitors how the feds spend tax revenue — has concluded that Trump’s request for a favor was a violation of law”
And the OMB says exactly the opposite.
Read the Transcipt finally you mindless political bigot. Your claims are without any merit at all. They are totally fraudulent made up nonsense based wholly on your mindless political bigotry and infantile hate for Trump
