Fox News' Judge Napolitano argues Comey's testimony illustrates a 'credible and compelling argument' that Trump has been dishonest

Fox News legal analyst Andrew Napolitano wasn't feeling too optimistic before former FBI Director James Comey's congressional testimony Thursday — and he wasn't feeling much better after it was over. "Today certainly advanced the ball on the seriousness of this investigation and the breadth of its scope," Napolitano said Thursday, after earlier warning Fox News hosts not to feel vindicated just yet. "If you look … at the big picture … you get a very, very credible and compelling argument that the president of the United States has not been truthful with the American people and ordered the director of the FBI to shut down an investigation."

Fox News anchor Shannon Bream pointed out that the hearing also revealed Comey purposefully leaked to the press via a friend his written memos regarding conversations he'd had with Trump, but Napolitano refused to bite. He contended the argument could be made that Comey acted "improperly and unlawfully" and leaked a government document to "protect his own reputation." However, he also said it could also be argued that Comey simply "wanted to advance the ball of truth."
