SEAN HANNITY: Whoever heard of 200 agents surrounding a guy’s ranch and stealing his cows and snipers hanging out on the outside perimeter of his ranch? We don’t even secure our border anywhere near this way and I think people see it as very heavy handed regardless of who is right in the dispute or not. I don’t think that’s an issue at this point — the tactics and how they are doing it. Do you believe the sheriff who says his sources are saying that they would engage in a late-night/early morning raid of this ranch, do you think that would happen?
JUDGE ANDREW NAPOLITANO: I personally know the sheriff to whom you’re referring and I know him to be a person of the highest intellectual honesty. He also has the highest fidelity to the constitution, as do the deputies who work for him or used to work for him. So do I believe that the most dangerous part of this is yet to come.
Look, the federal government has a legitimate valid court order. But they don’t have to enforce it by bringing in militaristic techniques. They don’t have to enforce it by stealing his private property. They can enforce it by filing a document in a courthouse which will enable them to collect the money to which they are entitled when he dies or when his property otherwise passes to somebody else and they know that.
