Fox News’ Gregg Jarrett: FBI Wanted to ‘Clear a Path’ for Clinton, Launch a ‘Fictitious’ Trump Probe
Fox News legal analyst Gregg Jarrett continued his war of words Thursday night against the FBI regarding their handling of numerous investigations.
In reaction to recent revelations of the Robert Mueller investigation, Jarrett told Hannity guest host Kimberly Guilfoyle that “almost day-by-day,” the “shape of a plot” is “beginning to emerge.”
“People were determined for political reasons to absolve and exonerate Hillary Clinton to clear a path for her to become president,” Jarrett said. “And at the same time, launching a fictitious investigation, without evidence, of Trump-Russian collusion in a political campaign — which, by the way, there’s no statute that prohibits that sort of thing as long as money is not exchanged. They try to frame Donald Trump while exonerating Hillary Clinton and was all of this for political reasons and evidence be damned? It sure is beginning to look like that.”
Jarrett added that the FBI has been “unaccountable” for decades and that they can “get away with doing things.”
Guilfoyle agreed with with Jarrett’s theory but went out of her way to praise the “outstanding” rank and file FBI agents and expressed disdain for individuals “at the top levels.”
Jarrett’s comments Thursday resemble his fiery rhetoric from earlier this month — which sparked major blowback at the other cable news networks. On the Dec. 6 edition of Hannity, Jarrett compared the FBI to the KGB.
“The FBI has become America’s secret police,” Jarrett told Sean Hannity. “Secret surveillance, wiretapping, intimidation, harassment and threats. It’s like the old KGB that comes for you in the dark of night, banging through your door.”
CNN contributor Mike Rodgers called those comments “offensive and dangerous” and MSNBC commentator Max Boot called the Fox News coverage of the Mueller investigation “disgusting and disgraceful.”
