Fox News host Jeanine Pirro blasted House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Democrats for the partisan impeachment of President Trump.
Pirro called out the Democrat leader and her “caucus of sycophants” on “Justice with Judge Jeanine” on Saturday, telling viewers that Pelosi’s actions will come back to haunt her.

“The public humiliation of Nancy Pelosi and her Democrat caucus of sycophants who dare not oppose her is actually an embarrassment to watch,” Pirro said in her opening monologue.
“Her impeachment of the 45th president of the United States is born not of truth, facts or evidence, but rather of a historic vitriolic hatred usually reserved for an enemy of the state,” she added.
“In the end, it is her animosity, frenetic, irrational and baseless actions against this president that will ultimately hoist her on her own petard,” Pirro continued. “And might I add, no one deserves it more.”
The former New York judge and prosecutor referred back to Pelosi’s contention in December that the House of Representatives needed to vote quickly on the articles of impeachment, saying the Democratic leader argued the “urgency of her claim as she wrapped herself in the American flag.”
But Pelosi then sat on the articles after the vote and did not submit them to the Senate so a trial could begin.
“So she rushed the vote because of the urgency involved. We cannot wait. We’ve got to stop him. The president is going to do it again. And the sky is falling, too. And yet there was no case to send to the Senate,” Pirro said.
“So like a child caught in a lie, she dithered for weeks hoping something, anything might happen to make the president look bad,” she continued. “But every day he kept on working and winning. So finally she explained her reason for procrastinating. She wanted to ensure a fair trial in the Senate.”
Pelosi “was so caught up in her own image as the imperious queen Nancy, that she, of the lower House, imagined herself the doyen of the upper house, the Senate chamber of which she has never been nor will she ever be a member,” Pirro said.
Democrats began to join the chorus of Republican voices condemning the Speaker for withholding the articles from the Senate, in an obvious ploy to gain some sort of political leverage. The California Democrat finally announced last week that she would be moving ahead with steps to deliver the articles to the Senate and went on to defend her decision to hold back for weeks.

Pirro slammed Pelosi as the “woman whose historic hate played out for all to see” and condemned her leaking “through her minion Adam Schiff.”
“It’s never been about truth or justice for these radicals,” Pirro said.
“House Democrats simply want to take out the most successful president Americans have put in the Oval. The one who has made the economy soar, who speaks our language, who actually wants us to succeed, who took out two of the world’s most dangerous savages, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and Quds force Gen. Qassem Soleimani with no civilian losses and no boots on the ground. The president, who has made the world safer and brought Iran, the world’s largest state sponsor of terrorism to her knees,” she added.
“But Nancy, you don’t care. His success offends you,” Pirro said. “But I guess you hate him because Donald Trump changed the planned political establishment legacy order.”
“Have you no shame?” she directed her query to Pelosi.
“After all the rushing, what did your dithering gain?” Pirro said, adding that the Speaker “simply caved.”
“That’s what happens when there is no case,” she said. “Who said you were smart anyway?”
