Who knew? Judge Andrew Napolitano is out as a legal analyst at Fox News. He hasn’t been seen for months, and it’s because accusations were being investigated that Judge Napolitano allegedly sexually harassed young male employees. After a Fox News investigation, Napolitano was let go.
Could this be why Napolitano suddenly changed his tune during commentary on Fox News about Spygate? Is blackmail a possibility?
In any case, Napolitano has been fired:
Variety reports that a complaint was filed on Monday involving a 27-year-old Fox News associate producer alleging that Napolitano has “sexually harassed numerous young male employees during his tenure at Fox News.” The plaintiff, John Fawcett, claims that he reported Napolitano’s misconduct to Fox News’ human resources department, but they did not take any immediate action against him.
In a statement to Variety, Fox News said that upon learning of the allegations, the network “immediately investigated the claims and addressed the matter with both parties.”
A portion of the ‘Statement of Facts’ continued from above:
Napolitano has not appeared on air at Fox News for several months.
Judge Napolitano was accused of having sour grapes after he allegedly voiced his desire to be a Supreme Court Justice but wasn’t chosen by President Trump. Napolitano got more and more anti-Trump as time went on, leaving many to wonder what had happened. He also went from recognizing a problem with spying by the intel agencies to being indifferent to it.
In September of 2019, Tucker Carlson and Joe diGenova discussed Judge Napolitano’s attacks on Trump:
Former U.S. Attorney for D.C. Joe diGenova went after Judge Napolitano, who said President Trump committed a crime in his phone call to the President of Ukraine.
Tucker also calls out Napolitano for his bias and dishonesty and asks diGenova if the president has committed a crime.
“I think Judge Napolitano is a fool. And what he said today is foolish. No, it is not a crime. Let me underscore emphatically that nothing that the president said on that call or what we think he said on that call constitutes a crime, and even if he had said you’re not gonna get the money, it wouldn’t be a crime.”
The internal Fox News feuds continue to escalate. In this case, between Tucker Carlson and Shep Smith. pic.twitter.com/21CzEnxmJq
