Judge Nap: ‘I Do’ Think the Firing of McCabe Was ‘Vindictive and Reckless’
HEMMER: "You think the firing was vindictive and reckless?"
NAPOLITANO: "I do."
HEMMER: "How come?"
NAPOLITANO: "Because Andrew MccCabe is more likely than not to be a witness against the Attorney General’s boss, the President of the United States. I think that firing him in that environment could very well be interpreted as an effort to diminish his effectiveness as a witness. What’s that called? Obstruction of justice. I don’t know if Bob Mueller wants to go there."
