Judge Jeanine Pirro came out with guns blazing to blast fired FBI director James Comey as a “pompous, egotistical, patronizing, condescending, holier-than-thou political operative” who’s trying to “cash it on your lies.”
“Why would you believe a guy with a history replete with lies, dishonesty, and contradictions?” Pirro asked on her Fox News show April 14. “You [Comey] are the ultimate liar. You lied to multiple people, including Congress under oath. That’s a crime.”
Judge Jeanine then mocked the title of Comey’s book, “A Higher Loyalty,” with this quip: “Your book is about a higher loyalty to none other than yourself.”
Pirro rattled off a long list of Comey’s lies and failings, including his bogus “investigation” of Hillary Clinton’s private, unsecured email server.
“You have the chutzpah to claim none of your decisions were based on politics. But in your own book, you say, ‘When I thought she was going to win, I didn’t want a tainted president.’ You know what, Jim? Everyone in law enforcement knows you reopened the Hillary Clinton case because the NYPD and the FBI field office were going to out you for protecting her again by not reopening the case.”
Like millions of other Americans, Judge Jeanine slammed James Comey — an Obama holdover — for tarnishing the reputation of the FBI with his partisan, incompetent leadership.
“You violated the rules of your own agency by leaking classified information to a friend to leak to the ‘New York Times.’ You went along with Loretta Lynch’s false narrative that Hillary’s case was a ‘matter,’ not an ‘investigation.’
Jim, you repeatedly have proven your inability to run the FBI in a non-political way. You turned the well-respected agency into a haven of organized criminal conspirators at the top echelon. Your book isn’t about leadership, it’s about butt-kissing.
Like when you were struck by the way Barack Obama could see and evaluate a variety of angles and complicated issues, his ability to connect with an audience. You are right. He’s really bright, like when he bragged about traveling to all 57 states. The guy is running for president and he thinks there are 57 states?
Your book is as petty, unprofessional and illegitimate as a Stormy Daniels’ resume. You talk about the size of the president’s hands, whether he used tanning goggles in a tanning booth and whether his hair is real.”
Judge Jeanine’s scathing review of Comey’s tabloid book echoed the sentiments of Fox News anchor Chris Wallace. Wallace — a registered Democrat who often slams President Trump — said he was surprised at “how bitchy” and non-substantive Comey’s book was.
Wallace explained his voting registration to the Washington Post in 2016. He said: “The reason I’m a registered Democrat is that in Washington, D.C., there is really only one party. If you want a say in who’s going to be the next mayor or councilman, you have to vote in the Democratic primary.”
“The other thing that surprises me, frankly, is how bitchy the book is,” Wallace said. “Comey goes out of his way to say that the president isn’t as tall as he thought he was. He checked out the size of his hands the first time they shook hands. One could argue that by getting into the kind of political food fight, that James Comey has done more damage to his own reputation than he has President Trump’s.”
