Fox News' senior judicial analyst, Andrew Napolitano, said Thursday Online Cigarettes Store USA that the summary released by the White House of a July 25 phone call between President Donald Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky demonstrates "both criminal and impeachable behavior" by Trump. Though the president has said it was a "perfect call" and that the summary exonerates him, Napolitano said in an opinion piece that the call showed that Trump was guilty of violating campaign finance law, bribery and intimidating witnesses. The former New Jersey judge's opinion made a social media splash because he works for a cable news network Newport Pleasure that is home to pro-Trump media figures like Sean Hannity, Tucker Carlson, Jeanine Pirro and the hosts of "Fox & Friends."

"The favor he sought was dirt on Biden," Napolitano said.
