Just Because It's Trending Doesn't Mean It's True

It was U.S. intelligence agents, not Vladimir Putin's spies, who hacked Democratic Party emails and gave them to Wikileaks in a plot to destroy Hillary Clinton's presidential bid, according to the senior judicial analyst for FOX News.

Watch the segment:

Andrew Napolitano, in a live segment on FOX News Thursday, argued that the CIA had a strong incentive for embarrassing Clinton and boosting Trump. The spy agency did not want "that woman" running the government because of the "reckless manner" in which she exposed their middle eastern agents while she was secretary of state.

"Who had an incentive to prevent Mrs. Clinton from becoming president of the United States? Whose agents had their real identities and locations exposed by the reckless manner? Who had access to all of this material without having to steal any codes? United States intelligence agents who did not want this woman in charge of the federal government and exposing more agents and resources and undercover assets in the middle east to who they truly are and where they were," Napolitano said.

Napolitano, whose main crediting is that he served as a New Jersey Superior Court judge from 1987 through 1995, offered no evidence beyond speculation. "There is a whole world out there that is below the fold, below the radar scope, that we don't know about that is the intelligence community," he said.
