Saturday on her Fox News Channel “Justice” program, host Jeanine Pirro used her “Opening Statement” to excoriate former FBI Director James Comey, who was fired by President Donald Trump early in his presidency.
Pirro argued Trump was justified in his actions.
“You know what? The president was right to fire you,” Pirro said. “Everything you did while you were at the FBI was for your political and egotistical advantage starting with announcing ‘no reasonable prosecutor would prosecute Hillary Clinton,’ to your arrogance with removing classified confidential information from the FBI and giving information to your pal in order to get it to The New York Times. By doing this – you, one person, James Comey, you created havoc and chaos in this great country. But for your doing that, Robert Mueller would have never been appointed and America would have never had to endure the lies of Russian collusion that you and your pals in the FBI created.”
Later in the segment, Pirro declared Comey a “low-life” and argued that even though the Department of Justice had decided not to prosecute Comey, he was not in the clear.
“Don’t you dare tell us that we are the liars and the leakers, you arrogant, sanctimonious, condescending low-life,” she said. “You have been found to be a liar and a leaker and just because the Department of Justice is not prosecuting you on this, don’t think for one second that you’re home free, buddy. Your lying and leaking shows your intent to take down Donald Trump and your abuse of our courts in order to do just that.”
