Jeanine Pirro is a former New York judge, prosecutor, and GOP candidate who, as a Fox News host, has been one of Donald Trump’s most loyal and vicious political attack dogs during this election season.
However, on Saturday, Pirro surprised everyone when she came out and criticized FBI Director James Comey’s bombshell announcement that his agency was reopening Hillary Clinton’s email server case in light of “new evidence.”
This so-called evidence is said to have surfaced during a child sex investigation into disgraced former Democratic Rep. Antony Weiner, who is said to have shared a laptop with his estranged wife, top Clinton aide Huma Abedin.
However, the FBI also admits that it has no idea what the emails they are investigating contain and now there is a question of whether or not they even have the authority to view that material.
Many Trump loyalists had their beer and popcorn ready Saturday night while waiting to hear Judge Pirro tear into Clinton over the FBI’s Friday announcement, just less than two weeks from the presidential election.
However, that anticipation turned into something else after Pirro immediately directed her anger towards the FBI director himself. Trump fans must have thought their favorite neocon judge had become possessed by Rachel Maddow as she tore into the director, accusing him of disgracing and politicizing the FBI.
“Comey’s actions violate not only long-standing Justice Department policy, the directive of the person that he works under, the attorney general,” she said. “But even more important, the most fundamental rules of fairness and impartiality.”
Pirro went on to share a very similar experience she had in 2006 when the FBI announced an investigation into her just days before she would appear on the ballot for the New York attorney general’s office.
“What was done to me in 2006 was wrong, and what happened to Hillary Clinton [Friday], was equally wrong,” Pirro said. “Now, this nation has already gone through an exhausting and traumatic campaign season. The FBI director should not now be front and center.”
One can only imagine the reaction from Donald Trump himself as he witnessed his media attack dog essentially turn around and bite him in the rear by telling the truth. It’s just too bad that this will unlikely to become a habit for her.
