Fox News judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano often cites his constitutional knowledge when pointing out the ways that President Donald Trump has used his office unethically and even illegally.

In a recent podcast for Reason, Napoilitano speculated on what articles of impeachment he expects Democrats to charge the President with.


Despite Trump's claims that impeachment efforts are a "hoax," it doesn't seem like they'll have to look far for acts that merit impeachment.

Napolitano said:

"The Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee have unearthed enough evidence, in my opinion, to justify about three or four articles of impeachment against the president."

In addition to bribery, Napolitano laid out the other possible charges:

"The second charge will be high crimes and misdemeanors, election law violation," says Napolitano. "The third crime will be obstruction of justice. The fourth will be interference with a witness and the fifth may be lying under oath."

The judge then summed it up:

"The evidence of his impeachable behavior at this point, in my view, is overwhelming."

People aren't surprised that Trump's list of offenses will likely be long.




But despite the evidence, people aren't hopeful that Republican lawmakers or Trump's voters will turn on the President.





Public impeachment hearings are set to begin in the House Judiciary Committee this week.
