Fox News legal analyst: There's 'undisputed evidence' that Trump abused his power
Fox News legal analyst Andrew Napolitano on Wednesday argued that there is "undisputed evidence" that President Trump abused the power of his office in his dealings with Ukraine, asserting that the "remedy of impeachment is acutely needed" because of it.

"In Mr. Trump’s case, we have undisputed evidence that he abused his power by inviting a foreign government to interfere in the 2020 presidential election and then compounded this by directing subordinates to refrain from giving congressionally commanded evidence of his behavior," Napolitano, a fierce Trump critic, wrote in a Washington Times op-ed ahead of the House vote on articles of impeachment.

Napolitano's op-ed focuses largely on the rule of law and how it pertains to a sitting U.S. president. While acknowledging that a sitting president cannot be prosecuted in office, he describes impeachment as a constitutional remedy for behavior that "subverts our democratic institutions."

He accuses Trump of fitting this description by soliciting foreign interference in an election and obstructing a subsequent congressional inquiry.

"It is undisputed that Mr. Trump withheld the delivery of the $391 million in military aid to Ukraine that Congress authorized and ordered and that Mr. Trump himself signed into law," Napolitano wrote. "He said he withheld that aid because he first wanted 'a favor' from the president of Ukraine. The favor, requested by others on Mr. Trump’s behalf, was the announcement of a Ukrainian government criminal investigation of Mr. Trump’s potential political adversary, former Vice President Joe Biden."

He goes on to describe Trump's request of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky as a "shakedown" to serve Trump's own personal goals. He also accuses the president of committing bribery by conditioning military aid on the announcement of the investigations.

Lastly, Napolitano alleges that Trump committed obstruction by directing subordinates to ignore congressional subpoenas.

"Everyone who believes in the rule of law should be terrified of a president who thinks and behaves as if it does not apply to him," he wrote. "As the [Department of Justice] has stated repeatedly, impeachment is the proper constitutional remedy for that."

And yet Napolitano does not provide any evidence that Trumps intent was to influence the 2020 election. If there is undisputed evidence this should be an easy enough thing to do.

What bullshit! Judge Nap, like other dems, believe the lies they tell.

The OMB (Office of Management and Budget) withheld the money because they usually withhold aid money to make sure it's going where it's reported to go. Trump had nothing to do with withholding it. Check it out for yourself instead of believing CNN's lies and then repeating them.

The dim-bulb dems are the ones who think they are above the law because they sure as hell broke many of them with this impeachment coup, and are still breaking them by withholding the impeachment articles that must now go to the Senate after the house Vote. Trump is not impeached until the Senate approves or disproves the fake impeachment.

Napolitano is a failed hack, who has not been right once in his job as a legal analyst regarding Trump.

In fact, I think he is 0/10. He was a lousy judge and thought Trump would put him on SCOTUS.

Like a typical democrat, he’s delusional.

Kamala Harris is not a Natural Born Citizen. She's illegally running.

Used by the Founders...
Book I of The Law of Nations, Chapter XIX, § 212 (Joseph Chitty numbering) – “Citizens and natives”
reads: 'The citizens are the members of the civil society; bound to this society by certain duties, and subject to
its authority, they equally participate in its advantages. The natives, or natural-born citizens, are those born in
the country, of parents who are citizens. As the society cannot exist and perpetuate itself otherwise than by
the children of the citizens
, those children naturally follow the condition of their fathers, and succeed to all
their rights.' 1758 Emerich de Vattel

Oh' What the Hell, do I look like I want to die in some nursing home one day...
America must have 4 new Constitutional Amendments...
1. Drug Tests and Mental Evaluations on all politicians and judges randomly five times per year.
2. Term Limits for Federal politicians and judges.
3. Mental and health standards for Supreme Court Justices and retirement age set.
4. A 'Star Chamber' of elected Natural Born Citizens (no attorney's) to ivestigate, try, and prosecute the politicians and government employee's as they see fit.

Mandatory death penalty by public hanging is the merciful sentence for pedos and their associates.

Democrats are a WMD, literally.

53 percent of voters say evidence supports Trump impeachment

Americans are almost evenly split over whether they think there was enough evidence to support impeaching President Trump, according to a nationwide poll released on Thursday.

The new Hill-HarrisX poll showed that 53 percent of registered voters think that there was compelling evidence for Trump’s impeachment, compared 47 percent who said that the Democratic-led House did not sufficiently make the case.
