Fox's Napolitano Calls Trump Impeachment Strategy 'Very Unwise'

Can’t Argue Process is ‘Unfair’ if He Doesn’t Send Lawyers

Fox News analyst Andrew Napolitano struck out at President Donald Trump’s decision to not send lawyers to an upcoming impeachment hearing, calling the move “very unwise.”

“I am curious what you make of the fact that the president might want to skip out on this Judiciary Committee opening hearing and maybe others to follow, because it is essentially a Kangaroo court or it’s not fair,” Neil Cavuto said on Your World Monday.

“The rules about which the president are complaining were written by a Republican House of Representatives in 2015. The president would be very unwise not to send lawyers there,” Napolitano responded.

“The Democrats are not doing anything that the Democrats did not do to Nixon or the Republicans didn’t do the Bill Clinton. But I think he makes a mistake when he refuses to participate. It is a valid vote by the House of Representatives that authorized this,” he continued. “He also loses the argument that it’s unfair if he doesn’t take the opportunity to participate himself.”

1. Trump is doing what developers do

when they avoid action brought against them in small claims court. I'm no lawyer and I think the rules vary state to state, but you let the other guys have their day and 'win' by default, BUT ... they still have to prove their case in the next legal round if there is one. And you've not shown your hand (if you have one).

But it's no strategy for the highest stakes in the country. It's petty, small-minded, and very stupid, in my view.

5. Folding is Trump's signature play.

Bone spurs, stiffed contractors, multiple failed businesses, serial divorces, abandoned relationships all over the place — he never follows through, always folds.

The flimsy illusion of success is shimmering and falling before our eyes. Not fast enough for my liking, but it is happening.
