Fox News host Jeanine Pirro held nothing back in a blistering rebuke of FBI Director Christopher Wray as being a part of the “deep state.”

The host of “Justice with Judge Jeanine” unloaded on Wray during a discussion with Fox News colleague Sean Hannity, accusing the FBI chief of “trying to cover” for others.

Pirro’s remarks came during a segment on “Hannity” Monday which also featured Congressman Jim Jordan speaking about a letter sent to Wray earlier this month following bombshell revelations in the case against former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.

Wray had not responded by the deadline and Jordan explained that another letter was issued to letter to FBI agent Joe Pientka as well as an attorney for Bill Priestap, the former assistant director of the FBI Counterintelligence Division. The Ohio Republican slammed Wray for ignoring attempts to get information and interviews with key FBI officials regarding the Flynn case.

“Here’s what I want to know. Compare three years of Chris Wray with three months of Rick Grenell. I don’t see where the FBI director is taking this seriously,” Jordan said.

“Where is Christopher Wray?” Jordan tweeted Monday.

“I cannot for the life of me understand the lack of urgency by this FBI director. He should be cleaning house,” Hannity responded, turning to Pirro for reaction.

“Well, Sean I have to tell you, you’re actually too good to him when you say he’s basically taking his time. He’s not taking his time, he is resisting,” she began.

“He is no different than the people that he’s trying to cover for,” the former New York State judge and prosecutor said.

“Sean, I’ve said this before my show. Christopher Wray is part of the deep state. He is connected to them. He has no sense of urgency because he doesn’t want this stuff to come out,” Pirro continued.

“From the first time he testified before Congress, he delayed everything and pushed back on everything. When the Inspector General’s report came out and there were 17 errors by the FBI his response was all you know we’ll do better. Hogwash! Nobody was fired. Nobody got rolled out of that agency when he was head of it,” Pirro exclaimed.

“With all due respect, I’m tired of people saying the truth will come out. The truth is out!” she added. “There was no Russia collusion. The whole Obama administration in the upper echelon was involved in a conspiracy across the board.”

“If Wray is not willing to do his job and he shows no urgency, Jim Jordan, there’s no other option,” Hannity interjected. “I have a good choice. What do you think about General Flynn, FBI director?”

“That is totally up to the president of the United States,” Jordan replied before going off on how Wray insisted the  Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act warrants were fine when they were anything but.

“Six weeks after that, just six weeks ago [Justice Department Inspector General] Michael Horowitz puts out a memo and says the 29 FISA applications he’s looked on American citizens — every single one has major problems,” Jordan said.
