Fox News’ Jeanine Pirro returned to the air Saturday night after two weeks off the air and let loose with a tirade against the “traitorous, treasonous” investigators who probed President Trump’s ties to Russia, claiming another “coup” may be in the works if Trump’s accusers don’t “face behind the bars justice.” Pirro made no mention of the controversy over her on-air suggestion two weeks ago that Rep. Ilhan Omar’s wearing of a hijab may be “indicative” of a loyalty to Sharia law, a claim that led to her show being bumped from the network’s time slot for several days. Instead, she opened her show with fear-mongering about a “future effort to overthrow the government” if we don’t “make an example of the traitorous, treasonous group that accused Donald Trump of being an agent of the Russian government.” Accusing special counsel Robert Mueller’s team of investigators of “spewing hate,” she called for a grand-jury investigation of 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. Among her guests on the show was Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani, who praised her as a “crusader for justice” and quickly echoed her claims. Giuliani called for the Justice Department to 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.
