Fox News senior judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano joined "Special Report with Bret Baier" Tuesday to discuss the confirmation hearing of Sen. Jeff Sessions for attorney general.

The judge said he was struck by Sessions' civility, moderate tone, charm and inability to be rattled.

"Jeff Sessions acquitted himself marvelously today," Judge Napolitano said. "If the vote were tonight, he'd have in my view more than 52 votes."

Napolitano said Sessions was prepared well for the hearing and gave a superb response on Roe v. Wade.

"In the parlance of New Jersey boxing, they didn't lay a glove on him," the judge said.

During the hearing, Sessions said he would recuse himself from any investigations into Hillary Clinton's emails or the Clinton Foundation itself.

"I thought that was also politically brilliant because it stopped all the further interrogation," Judge Napolitano said.
