Napolitano: Trump tweets are a 'treasure trove' for Mueller

by Justin Wise

Fox News legal analyst Andrew Napolitano said Thursday that special counsel Robert Mueller knows President Trump's tweets are a "treasure trove" for his probe into whether the president obstructed justice.

“Mueller knows that those tweets are a treasure trove and a window into Trump’s thinking,” Napolitano said on Fox News's "Outnumbered."

Napalitano added that if any of Trump's tweets are interpreted as containing threats or rewards, then it could be viewed as witness tampering.

“Did the president send messages to people of threats, or rewards, via his tweets? People who he knew or expected would be interviewed by Bob Mueller?” Napolitano said. “And if he did, was he engaging in witness tampering?"

Napolitano's comments came shortly after a new New York Times report that said Mueller is reviewing Trump's tweets as part of his investigation into whether he obstructed justice.
