"The president is right. This is almost literally a witch hunt. They're looking for anything they can find," Napolitano said.

"There's a Supreme Court opinion. And there are cases following it which says basically Congress' investigatory powers are limited to bona fide federal issues," he said. "But that is a very, very broad swath and Congress can investigate anything."

The judge also said the president "can do very little about this."
