Jeanine Pirro bursts out hearty laugh over CNN’s hiring of disgraced Andrew McCabe

Disgraced former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, one of the central figures in the Russia collusion delusional conspiracy theory/hoax perpetrated by the so-called ‘deep state’, has been hired by CNN.

“Andrew McCabe has been signed as a contributor,” Fox News host Steve Doocy revealed Friday morning on “Fox & Friends” as he read from a tweet posted moments earlier by CNN senior media reporter Oliver Darcy.

In response, fellow network host Jeanine Pirro burst out laughing.

Pirro was on “Fox & Friends” that morning to promote her soon-to-be-released book, Radicals, Resistance, and Revenge: The Left’s Plot to Remake America.”

Why the unrestrained laughter, though? Partly because of McCabe’s sordid history:

In 2016, he leaked documents to The Wall Street Journal about the bureau’s then-ongoing investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. When questioned later by investigators about these leaks, he lied. Months later, he was fired in 2018 for his lack of “candor.”

He left in disgrace, and I believe there’s a criminal referral by the inspector general,” Pirro noted on “Fox & Friends.” “I expect him to be indicted soon based on that criminal referral.”

Fact-check: TRUE.

“The Justice Department’s inspector general referred its findings on former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe to the US attorney’s office in Washington for possible criminal charges associated with lying to internal investigators, according to a source familiar with the matter,” CNN reported in April of 2017.

In the end, what you’ve got now — CNN is showing its true colors — a guy who was in the middle of this … as to whether or not there was this ‘deep state’ to prevent Trump from becoming president and then framing him for Russian collusion, he’s part of the whole thing, and that’s why he’s working for CNN. He’s perfect for them!” Pirro continued.

Her laughter was also provoked by CNN’s stunning hypocrisy. The announcement pertaining to McCabe was made less than 24 hours after the network made a big stink over Fox News hiring former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

According to Darcy and CNN chief media correspondent Brian Stelter, Sanders is a liar, and her alleged history of endless lies makes her undeserving of a position of “fame and privilege.”

The problem with such statements is that, one, they can’t be believed because CNN has a history of twisting Sanders’ words and labeling factual statements as lies.

Second is the irony of CNN criticizing FNC for hiring a liar and then turning around and hiring a corrupt former government official who was fired from the FBI for lying.

To many critics, including Pirro, it seems awfully telling:

Not to mention HILARIOUS!
