Why is Judge Andrew Napolitano lying about what the law says?

On Fox News he claimed, “As most people know, it is a felony to ask for or to receive, to conspire and plan for, to attempt to acquire aid for a presidential campaign from a foreign government or a foreign national.“

But if that’s true, Trump unquestionably committed a crime.

So why did he lie?

    He's not lying. Its an actual law.

    However this applies only to FINANCIAL aid (or the contribution of a thing of value).

    The trouble is that there is no actual evidence (or at least none that has been presented or made public) which proves that Trump actually did this.

    He didn't lie because Trump did unquestionably commit a crime.

    Rumour has it that Napolitano asked President Trump for a SCOTUS position and POTUS refused. Since then, Napolitano has switched from supporting President Trump to opposing him whenever he can.

    While it is a law it is not one that applies here. Trump said nothing about his Presidential campaign. He did not ask for a favour to investigate Biden. The favour was to investigate the 2016 election. So Napolitano is deliberately misrepresenting what happened to try and make the sheeple thing "orange man bad".

    Judging by the comments from the Dems and the media I am no longer sure what Presidents are allowed to discuss. Should they limit themselves to the weather?

    The US has a treaty with Ukraine that supports the mutual investigation of crimes. How is a POTUS supposed to make use of that without mentioning something that the Dems and MSM might willfully misconstrue?
