One of the things that cable news and 24-hour news stations have done is to bring about major news stories from nothing more than pundits talking and filling time. This was not the case when news was reported for 30 minutes in the evening on television and 5 minutes at the top of the hour on radio. During those days the short time for news reporting did not allow time for any meaningful analysis, but it also did not manufacture news because some pundit speculated about some happening.
Today these manufactured news stories, along with meaningless poll results, are broadcast as if they were stories with real meaning. Speculation about whether President Trump will testify before an illegally appointed special prosecutor, the senate never did approve Mueller’s appointment as is required, has dominated the airwaves for weeks and months. Now Judge Napolitano, during meaningless and time filling banter with Maria Bartiromo has the news cycle buzzing about President Trump pleading the Fifth. This is foolish speculation, as is so much so-called news today. It would have been great to listen to a conversation about why the west is allowing Muslims to bring Sharia law into our nations and then have our courts protect the Muslims who commit crimes based on our Western law. Instead we heard this nonsense:
Fox News senior judicial analyst Andrew Napolitano on Monday said it would be “catastrophic politically” for President Trump to invoke his Fifth Amendment protection from self-incrimination in special counsel Robert Mueller's probe into Russian meddling in the 2016 election.
Napolitano made the statement while discussing the new stance of Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani on a potential Trump-Mueller interview.
Trump's legal team now says that Mueller would need to show that there was a legitimate basis for an investigation into Trump's campaign before they grant the special counsel an interview with the president.
“It is inconceivable that the prosecutor would show his cards to politicians before he has played the cards,” Napolitano said on Fox Business. “The prosecutors and the police and the FBI have every right to keep that stuff to themselves until they indict or exonerate. As for Rudy, in my view, this is a very sophisticated way for him to say, ‘The president’s not sitting down with you.’ ”
But Napolitano added that Mueller could then subpoena the president and bring him before a grand jury.
Asked by Fox Business’s Maria Bartiromo if Trump could then plead the Fifth, Napolitano said that action would be “prophylactic legally, but it would be catastrophic politically.”
He added that it also would not look good for the president considering his history of deriding defendants who have invoked the Fifth Amendment.
Everything in this story is speculation with no basis in fact. The crimes being committed by Muslims in Western Europe and the United States are real and happening every day. That our courts are excusing these criminals for various politically correct reasons, is real news and must be addressed. If it is not, the ramifications will be the enslavement by Muslims of all non-Muslims in the Western world. Come on Napolitano and Bartiromo, fill your air time with honest discussion about real issues.
