For a long time, Judge Napolitano of Fox News was a huge supporter of President Trump. Not anymore. He suddenly started firing barbs at President Trump, which was a big surprise.
Well, now it's been revealed as to why Judge Napolitano had such a change of heart. Napolitano was once a superior court judge in New Jersey, but is now a legal analyst for Fox News. In a segment last week he claimed that President Trump obstructed justice.
Did President Trump Obstruct Justice?

President Trump took to Twitter to respond the bashing that was being done by Napolitano. He pointed out how attorney Alan Dershowitz debunked the legal argument of "Judge" Andrew Napolitano.
Thank you to brilliant and highly respected attorney Alan Dershowitz for destroying the very dumb legal argument of “Judge” Andrew Napolitano....

Then President Trump took it to the next level and called Napolitano out and said that the only reason he is on the attack is because he denied Napolitano of being appointed to the U.S. Supreme Court and also denied pardoning Napolitano's friend.
When reached for comment on when this conversation occurred or who Napolitano asked President Trump to pardon, the White House did not respond.
President Trump has many allies of his administration on Fox News and Judge Andrew Napolitano has long been accounted as one of them. Dershowitz is also one of those who have defended President Trump the entire way during the Russian collusion investigation. Napolitano is no longer in that circle.
