A recent article in The Hill discusses statements by Fox News Judge Andrew Napolitano warning that the President’s firing of Andrew McCabe could be viewed as obstruction of justice.
Napolitano said on Fox News’s “America’s Newsroom” Monday that he viewed McCabe’s firing as “vindictive” and “reckless.”
“Andrew McCabe is more likely than not to be a witness against the attorney general’s boss, the president of the United States,” Napolitano said. “I think that firing him in that environment could very well be determined to diminish his effectiveness as a witness. What’s that called? Obstruction of justice.
Trump’s egregious actions are seriously jeopardizing the Mueller investigation. But even with what seems like daily breaking news, we can’t lose sight of one critically important fact that has been true since the day Trump took office: the president has already committed impeachable offenses.
Obstruction of justice is one of eight legal grounds for impeachment we have identified in calling for Congress to launch an impeachment investigation of the President. The firing of McCabe demonstrates further the need for Congress to take immediate action and begin impeachment proceedings.
