Judge Jeanine’s opening statement Saturday night was a change in form for her. Instead of reaming Barack Obama (or Hillary, or some other vile Democrat) for seven straight minutes, she defended the integrity of a man she knows and obviously has deep admiration for – FBI Director James Comey.
His name has come up on her show in the past, during discussions about the Clinton email investigation, which she has maintained is being conducted by the FBI in a non-partisan and above board manner.
On Saturday night’s Justice, Pirro ran through a number of clashes Comey’s had with Obama for the past year – some of which – was news to me.
On October 22, he went before Congress to say terrorists were getting in with refugees, weeks before Administration officials defended the refugee vetting system as “robust.”
In July, he raised concerns before Congress that law enforcement tools to fight terrorism were “increasingly ineffective.”
Pirro said that politics play no role in Comey’s work.
She got to know him when he was U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York.
“He is not only brilliant. He is honest, hard working and comes from a long line of law enforcement … And Mr. President, you need to let this man do his job.”
There’s more, and it’s all good to know:
Pirro also tackled a story broken by Fox News, last week.
A DHS Whistleblower claims that an investigation he was working on at the National Targeting Center was halted by the State Department because the targeting of radical mosques was “problematic.” The mosque in question was the one in Riverside Ca that was attended by San Bernardino terrorist Syed Farook.
