Fox News senior judicial analyst Andrew Napolitano was discussing the investigation into the origins of the Russia probe with FBN's Maria Bartiromo, particularly the developing disagreement between former FBI director James Comey and former CIA director John Brennan about which agency insisted on using information from the Steele dossier in the intelligence assessment of Russian interference in the 2016 election given Donald Trump. 

Former House Judiciary Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy claims to have seen an email from Comey stating that Brennan "insisted" including the document, while Brennan testified in May 2017 that: "No, it wasn’t part of the corpus of intelligence information that we had. It was not in any way used as a basis for the intelligence community’s assessment that was done."

To that end, Napolitano said that if the email is correct, Brennan committed perjury.
