Andrew Napolitano: "Congressman Schiff Is, In My Opinion, Following The Rules Of The House Of Representatives"

|

Fox News judicial analyst Andrew Napolitano told the hosts of "FOX & Friends" Thursday morning that House Democrats led by Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff are following the proper process to pursue an impeachment inquiry against President Trump.

"The Republicans are looking for more transparency so that the better cross-examiners among them can challenge the credibility and the essence of the testimony of the witnesses. Right now, all that is going on in secret," Napolitano said.





He said [special prosecutor during the Clinton impeachment] Ken Starr "handed a tremendous amount of evidence to the House Judiciary Committee. How did he generate that evidence? In secret. What did he do? He put witnesses on before a grand jury."

"But nothing was used against Bill Clinton that came from Ken Starr that wasn't at some point filtered through the public, so the president's lawyers can challenge it," he said. "So Congressman Schiff is, in my opinion, following the rules of the House of Representatives. You generate the information in secret, you decide what you want to make public. You can't use anything against the president that has not been challenged and aired in public."
