Fox News gets to see Mueller Report before the rest of the world. Fox host leaks info (VIDEO)
Fox News senior judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano just made multiple statements on television claiming he knows how long Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report is.
“We saw on Sunday a four-page summary of a 700-page report,” the Fox analyst said. “The 700-page report is a summary of two million pages of documents, of raw evidence.”
He continued: “In the 700-page summary of the two million pages of raw evidence, there is undoubtedly some evidence of a conspiracy and some evidence of obstruction of justice, just not enough evidence—I’m thinking the way I believe Congressman Schiff is thinking—according to Attorney General Barr, not enough evidence to prove it beyond a reasonable doubt, which is the standard.”
There's only one problem with that: no one knows how long it is.
Right now, it is unclear how he knows that. He gave no explanation and he wasn't even asked how he knew, which in itself is pretty fishy. The statement also can't be considered flip because he said it multiple times.
Go ahead and watch for yourselves.
What we do know is: Attorney General William Barr's Justice Department has already announced that he intends to let President Trump review Mueller's final report before Congress or even the public gets a chance to see it. Maybe he's letting a few people over at Fox News get a peak at it, too? Maybe the 700 pages fact slipped when Napolitano was talking with Trump's buddy Sean Hannity? These questions aren't far-fetched.
The Daily Beast ran a story about Napolitano saying this but forgot to point out the oddity of him knowing how long Mueller's report is.
So, what do you think? Is Napolitano talking out of his ass or does he actually know how long it is? We think Fox News given their special ties to the White House knows.
This also, if true, wouldn't be the first time Fox has sat on a story. When Stormy Daniels was first negotiating with Trump before the 2016 election about a payoff, Fox News got wind of it and decided to kill the story so Trump wouldn't lose the election.
