'Is It Worth Risking American Lives?' Megyn Kelly Presses Judge Nap on CIA Report
A long-awaited Senate report on the enhanced interrogation tactics used by the Central Intelligence Agency post-9/11 is set to be released tomorrow.
The report has been condemned by nearly everyone in the U.S. government, military and intelligence community who say it will endanger American lives.
Judge Andrew Napolitano joined Megyn Kelly on "The Kelly File" tonight and said that he's sorry to hear about the report and what's in it, but it is a good thing that it's being released.
"In a democracy, the American public has the right to know what has been done in their name, especially when they've been misled about it," Judge Nap said. "The American public is also entitled to know that the laws that govern the rest of us also govern the government."
He said it's terrible that the release of the report could endanger the lives of any Americans, but it's also terrible if the people in the report did what it says they did.
Judge Nap added that the genesis of this is that Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) argued the CIA broke the law by spying domestically, and one of the victims of that spying was her.
"She's going to argue that the American people have a right to know, and with that, I agree with her," he said.
"Is it worth risking the lives of these Americans?" Kelly pressed.
"If she's ticked off that they spied on her, she needs to take it up with her therapist and the head of the CIA. But to endanger the lives of people because of that raises serious questions," she said.
