The lawyers conversation pointed to internal friction between White House and Trump lawyers over the investigation.
"Don't talk in public about your client's issues, whether he's the president or anybody," the judge told host Bill Hemmer.
Napolitano also pointed out that the lawyers should be careful about withholding documents from Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
"You cannot do that" without explaining to the government your reasons for withholding the information, he said.
"You can't pretend that it doesn't exist," he said. "That's when lawyers get in trouble."
