Saturday night on Fox News’ “Justice,” Judge Jeanine Pirro began the show with a scathing rebuke of Attorney General Loretta Lynch for not only meeting with Bill Clinton at a Phoenix airport on Tuesday, but once it happened not recusing herself from the investigation for the obvious appearance of impropriety.
“For the first time in the history of this great nation, the person about to become the Democratic nominee was interrogated by the FBI today as part of a year-long federal criminal investigation,” Pirro said.
Referring to husband Bill Clinton’s airport meeting with Lynch, Pirro believes the fact that Lynch violated her own rules, including “Rule 14,” and hasn’t recused herself from the criminal investigation, “brings shame on all the United States attorneys who work tirelessly ethically doing their jobs without fear or favor … You know every small town prosecutor in this country would not only refuse to speak with the spouse of a target but would refuse to be in their company to avoid the appearance of impropriety.”
After quoting Lynch’s own words saying she “expects to accept” the FBI’s recommendation, Pirro was dubious.
“Did you notice she said she expects to accept. Does accepting their recommendations mean she doesn’t have the right to overrule it? No! She didn’t say I will recuse myself. She didn’t say I’ll stay out of it. She didn’t say I’ll ask for a special prosecutor, an independent counsel. This is all smoke and mirrors folks!”
“These are people openly flaunting the system while ordinary Americans are held to a completed different standard,” Pirro continued. “With Bill Clinton, there can be no presumption of truthfulness. There is serial evidence to the contrary. Bill Clinton was impeached for perjury and obstruction of justice. He escaped indictment by accepting a penalty short of criminal conviction including an unequivocal admission of lying under oath by surrendering his law licence. As a result, he was disbarred. Hillary Clinton has been investigated for everything from the Rose Law Firm to Whitewater to cattle futures to missing files, Travelgate, etc.”
“So what should Americans reasonably believe? Nothing that they say!”
“So, should these people be trusted to run our country? The answer is positively, absolutely, undeniably, NO!”
