When Fox News comes to Hillary Clinton’s defense, you know the FBI stepped out of bounds.
Fox News Jeanine Pirro, the host of Fox’s “Justice With Judge Jeanine”, and one of Hillary Clinton’s harsher critics, came to Hillary’s defense in an amazing takedown of the FBI.
In the opening monologue on her show, Pirro said the announcement Friday by FBI Director James Comey that the bureau will review newly found emails in connection with Clinton’s private email server “disgraces and politicizes the FBI and is symptomatic of all that is wrong in Washington.”
Pirro said, “Comey’s actions violate not only long-standing Justice Department policy, the directive of the person that he works under, the attorney general. But even more important, the most fundamental rules of fairness and impartiality.”
Pirro understands this injustice, because she went through a similar situation when she was running for New York Attorney General in 2006. When she was running for attorney general, Pirro said the Justice Department and the FBI announced to the media that they were opening an investigation of her. She said it was “mean-spirited and, of course, nothing came of it, except the adverse publicity cost me at the polls.”
“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.”
