Judge Napolitano Thinks He May Have ‘Jumped The Gun’ With Comey Accusations

Judge Napolitano Thinks He May Have Jumped The Gun With Comey Accusations Fox Friends    e
Fox News senior judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano admitting to “jumping the gun” about whether or not former FBI Director James Comey broke the law when he leaked material to a Columbia University professor.

“[Comey] has a very narrow definition of leak, but not all leaks are criminal,” Napolitano said. “That’s what [Comey] was talking about. If it’s not classified. It’s not criminal. At the time this occurred, by this I mean professor Richman reading to selected members of the media, selected non-classified portions of one of the memos, Jim Comey was a private citizen. So he could.”

Napolitano accused Comey of breaking FBI protocol and possibly lying under oath Monday on “Fox & Friends” and suggested he may have broken the law.

WATCH: “I jumped the gun here the other day,” Napolitano added. “Not knowing that Professor Richman had a security clearance. And one of you, I think, said to me did Jim Comey break the law? And I said it appears he did. I’ve since then apologized. It now appears did he not.”

“We didn’t know about the professor having the clearance, which is why as a judge, I ought to have known, you’ve got to get all the facts before you form a judgment,” he concluded.
