During her “Opening Statement” on Fox News Channel’s “Justice,” host Judge Jeanine blasted FBI Director James Comey for opening the criminal investigation into Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton back up 11 days before the presidential election.
“Eleven days before one of the most hotly contested presidential elections of our time both disgraces and politicizes the FBI and is symptomatic of all that is wrong in Washington,” Pirro stated.
“The Justice Department and the FBI’s policy to not comment publicly about politically sensitive investigations within 60 days of an election exists for a very important reason,” she later added. “Announcements so close to elections have an impact. Now this nation has already gone through an exhausting and traumatic campaign season. The FBI director should not now be front and center. One of the most revered agencies in our nation’s history, now seen as putting its finger on the scales of justice should not now be front and center.”
