The now infamous meeting that took place last summer between Trump Campaign associates and a Russian lawyer has gained a lot of attention over the past few weeks. While some in the media are claiming that the meeting itself was criminal, Judge Andrew Napolitano does not believe that anyone committed a crime.
During The Tom Shillue Show on Wednesday, Tom was joined by Fox News Senior Judicial Analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano. The two discussed the whether or not Donald Trump Jr. and other Trump Campaign associates did anything wrong by agreeing to meet with a Russian lawyer who promised incriminating information about Hillary Clinton. Judge Napolitano said that he does not believe Trump Jr. thought he was doing anything wrong by agreeing to take the meeting.
While Judge Napolitano does not see a crime in the meeting, he still feels as though it needs to be investigated. In his view, the circumstances surrounding the meeting warrant an investigation.
And when it comes to the entire Trump-Russia probe, he understands why the behavior of President Trump and his team could have raised some red flags and sparked an investigation. However, he told Tom he still has yet to see any evidence that President Trump or anyone in his inner circle committed an actual crime during or after the campaign committed any crime!
Later in the segment, Tom and Judge Napolitano weighed in on O.J. Simpson and his upcoming parole hearing. Simpson was convicted of armed robbery and kidnapping back in 2008, and is currently serving a 33 year prison sentence that could be shortened to nine years. Judge Napolitano thinks that Simpson was over-prosecuted and over-sentenced in that case because everyone believed that he was guilty in the infamous 1994 murder trial. He does not think that it was right to do this, as these were two separate cases.
