Jeanine Pirro slammed the Russia investigation as a political witch hunt and warned there will be an “uprising” in America if a Trump family member is indicted.
The host of “Justice with Judge Jeanine” spoke to the “Fox & Friends” hosts Friday about special counsel Robert S. Mueller’s call for a grand jury in the probe into alleged coordination between Russia and the Trump campaign.
“This is an agenda,” Pirro said, “and my concern is if they end up with an indictment against a family member just to, you know, just to get at Donald Trump when they couldn’t get at him, there’s going to be real uproar, a real uprising in this country.”
And while Pirro argued that any indictments would be the result of a calculated plan against Trump, there is still a possibility that indictments will be handed down.
“Who says they can’t get at him?” host Brian Kilmeade asked.
“You can do anything,” Pirro responded. “Look, I was a prosecutor for 32 years. You can indict a ham sandwich!”
The president retweeted the video of Pirro originally shared by the Fox News show.
“The only person in that grand jury is the district attorney, who is instructing all of those grand jurors on what the law is. And the body language is clear,” Pirro added.
