Fox News’ Judge Napolitano said on Tuesday that the claims made by Trump and Giuliani that the FBI placed spies in the Trump campaign are “baseless.”
On Tuesday night Trump supporter Andrew Napolitano appeared on Fox News. And he blew Trump’s whole “spygate” theory out of the water.
Martha MacCallum spoke to Napolitano right after doing a segment with Republican Congressman Trey Gowdy who agreed with Napolitano’s assessment. Gowdy told MacCallum, “The FBI did exactly what my fellow citizens would want them to do when they got the information they got.”
Napolitano, who is the senior judicial analyst at Fox, later said that there was “no evidence” to support the spygate claims. He called Giuliani’s assertions “baseless.”
“The allegations by Mayor Giuliani over the weekend, which would lead to us believe that the Trump people think that the FBI had an undercover agent who inveigled his way into the campaign and was there as a spy on the campaign, seem to be baseless,” Napolitano said.
On Sunday, Giuliani suggested that the Obama administration directed the FBI to place an informant into the Trump campaign to spy for political reasons.
The FBI did use an informant who’s been identified as American professor Stefan Halper. In 2016, Halper met with George Papadopoulos, Carter Page and Sam Clovis. But there is absolutely no evidence that Halper was sent to spy for political reasons.
I know that Trump and Giuliani really want to make this spygate thing happen. But not even Fox is buying it at this point.
