Fox News Judge Claims He Would “Certainly” Vote To Impeach Trump

Trump's support system is crumbling. Fast.

As more and more information comes to light as a result of the House’s public impeachment hearings, Trump’s chances of remaining the White House much longer are getting slimmer and slimmer — right along with the number of people who even support him staying.

Even his beloved Fox News has started to falter as more damning evidence against Trump is made public. And now one prominent Fox personality has cranked things up to 11 for the network when he admitted on Donald’s most beloved media outlet, that he would certainly vote for the president’s impeachment were he able.

Fox News Judge Andrew Napolitano made an appearance on the Fox News segment America’s Newsroom, where he made it crystal clear that he believes “the Democrats have credibly argued that [Trump] committed impeachable offenses” in regard to the Ukraine scandal.


“The easiest one — because this existed in Andrew Johnson, Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton — is obstruction of Congress,” the Fox judge stated. “So — by directing his subordinates to refuse to comply with lawfully issued subpoenas, whether it’s for testimony or for documents — that’s an impeachable offense.”

“We know that from history, every time the House of Representatives has looked at that with respect to a president,” Napolitano went on, “it has found it to be impeachable. On that, reasonable minds cannot disagree without rejecting history and without rejecting constitutional norms.”

Fox News host Bill Hemmer went on to ask the judge during the segment, “If you were in the House, would you vote for impeachment?”

“I certainly would. I’m never going to be in the House,” Napolitano responded with a laugh. “I would on that count.”

He then proceeded to explain that “reasonable minds” could argue over why Trump ultimately held up the aid to Ukraine.

“What was the president’s intent when he held up this aid?” the judge questioned. “Was it truly to eradicate corruption in Ukraine? Was he truly concerned that American taxpayer dollars would go into the hands of crooks? Or was he looking to use the instruments of a foreign government to help his political campaign?”

Napolitano gave his opinion on the latest rounds of public hearings, explaining that he doubted it would sway the public mind, but not without warning that “letting Trump be Trump is not good enough under the Constitution.”

“We don’t lower the bar because the president has unorthodox ways,” he added. “The bar is intentionally broad and even ambiguous as to what high crimes and misdemeanors are. We learned today that the Democrats apparently intend to include in there things we didn’t know they were going to include, like bribery, like the obstruction of justice allegations which were made by (former special counsel) Bob Mueller long before the Ukraine case came to the public’s attention.”

It’s becoming increasingly clear that Donald Trump is slowly but surely losing his grip on the support that he relied most heavily upon. Trump’s defense is crumbling before our very eyes with each and every testimony. And even Fox News can no longer play along at this point.
