On Tuesday, Andrew Napolitano said on Fox News that he disagrees with rumors that Special Counsel Robert Mueller is close to ending his probe of supposed collusion between Russia and the Trump political organization. Napolitano responded to a report by Yahoo News by journalist Michael Isikoff, who claims that Mueller and his investigators are "tying up loose ends" in the probe and that they are about to file three memoranda this week on Donald Trump’s former national security adviser Michael Flynn, former campaign chairman Paul Manafort, and former legal adviser Michael Cohen.

Speaking on “Fox & Friends,” Napolitano said on Tuesday, "I don't believe it," and added, "I believe that Mueller is continuing to get information." Napolitano revealed that Mueller’s team of attorneys interviewed Cohen for nearly 70 hours as part of a guilty plea that was revealed just last week. "Most people are focusing on what Cohen told the court, which took about five minutes. What we really should focus on is what he told [Mueller's team]," Napolitano said.

 

Napolitano said that prior to Cohen's guilty plea, Mueller's investigators verified Cohen’s “debriefing,” and they did not not want to "spring" the guilty plea until after President Trump's legal advisers had provided written answers to Mueller’s questions. "Something's up. I don't know what it is. And we'll find out about it in due time."

President Trump has questioned Mueller’s, as well as Democrats’, motivations in the probe. He tweeted on Monday: “Bob Mueller (who is a much different man than people think) and his out of control band of Angry Democrats, don’t want the truth, They only want lies. The truth is very bad for their mission!” He also decried an apparent deal between Cohen and Mueller for a reduced sentence.
