Fox News legal analyst Andrew Napolitano made a forceful case for President Donald Trump’s removal from office in an op-ed published Thursday.
Napolitano argued that a president does not have to violate specific laws to be impeached and removed.
Nonetheless, Napolitano said it can be argued that Trump did indeed break specific laws: bribery and contempt of Congress.
He concluded that there is “ample and uncontradicted” evidence to remove trump from office.

The most prominent legal analyst for Fox News, Judge Andrew Napolitano, published an op-ed Thursday arguing that there is “ample” evidence that President Donald Trump should be removed from office.

Napolitano’s piece came as the Senate entered day two of opening arguments in Trump’s Senate trial following his impeachment by the House of Representatives last month.

Trump was impeached with charges of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. Both relate to his efforts to pressure Ukraine into launching politically motivated investigations targeting his rivals while withholding military aid and a White House meeting with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

The first investigation Trump demanded focused on Burisma Holdings, the Ukrainian natural-gas company that employed former Vice President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter, until last year.

Trump has baselessly accused the Bidens of corruption related to Hunter’s work for Burisma, which was previously investigated by the Ukrainian prosecutor general.

The second investigation centered on a bogus conspiracy theory suggesting Ukraine interfered in the 2016 US election. There is also no evidence to support that claim.

Earlier this month, the Government Accountability Office, a federal watchdog, determined that Trump’s Office of Management and Budget violated the law when, at Trump’s direction, it ordered a freeze on nearly $400 million of military aid to Ukraine.

In his op-ed, Napolitano wrote that, while the GAO found that Trump acted unlawfully, the …read more

Former Raiders receiver Antonio Brown reportedly surrenders to police

Antonio Brown turned himself in late Thursday night, TMZ and ESPN reported, a day after the Hollywood (Florida) Police Department issued an arrest warrant for the free agent wide receiver after he and his trainer allegedly attacked a moving company truck driver.

According to TMZ, Brown arrived at “a Florida jail” late Thursday. The report did not state exactly where in Florida or to which law enforcement agency Brown surrendered.

Police spokesman Christian Latta said in a news release Wednesday that Brown faces charges of burglary with battery (a felony), burglary of an unoccupied conveyance and criminal mischief.

The driver alleges he was the victim of battery by Brown’s trainer, Glenn Holt, and Brown himself. Holt was arrested and charged with one count of burglary with battery, and he was arraigned at the Broward County Jail on Tuesday. Holt was released after posting a $20,000 bond on Wednesday.

According to a report by USA Today, there was no police activity Wednesday night at Brown’s home after the warrant was issued, suggesting that authorities were waiting until Thursday morning to arrest him if he did not turn himself in. Earlier Wednesday, Brown reportedly had locked himself in his house and was avoiding police attempts to contact him.

Brown, 31, tweeted on Wednesday morning, “They want my name slandered.”

Later Wednesday, TMZ reported more details from the incident, citing court documents. Per TMZ, the truck driver told police he was delivering Brown’s belongings from California, but Brown refused to pay the $4,000 cost for the moving services. As he started to drive away, the driver said Brown threw a rock at the truck and dented it. The driver then called the police.

The driver said Brown eventually paid the $4,000 but would not pay additional money for damage to the truck, which led to an argument and a physical …read more
