The Daily Beast reports that after two weeks of being off air, Fox News host Jeanine Pirro returned to the show and criticized the “traitorous, treasonous” investigators who made inquiries into Trump’s ties with Russia. She claimed that another “coup” could occur if Trump’s investigators don’t “face behind the bar justice.”
Pirro did not mention her absence from the air, which was due to a comment she made about Representative Ilhan Omar’s hijab. Pirro said the hijab could be “indicative” of loyalty to Sharia law. This claim led to her suspension from Fox.
She opened her show talking about “future effort to overthrow the government” if we do not “make an example of the traitorous, treasonous group that accused Donald Trump of being an agent of the Russian government.” Pirro said Robert Mueller’s team was guilty of “spewing hate” and she called for an investigation into former CIA director John Brennan, former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe, former Attorney General Loretta Lynch, and “that pious, condescending holier than thou Jim Comey.”
“This is bound to happen again because these arrogant, condescending, leaking lying haters of you and me and the America that doesn’t have power will do it again unless we stop them in the only way to stop them is with justice, true justice and that is behind the bars justice,” she said.
A guest on her show, Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani, praised Pirro as a “crusader for justice.” Giuliani said the Justice Department should investigate those “who tried to perpetrate a fraud against the American people” and said McCabe “should be in jail for perjury” along with DOJ official Bruce Ohr.
