Jeanine Pirro Doubles Down FBI ‘Cleansing’: People Should Be Led Out ‘In Cuffs’

Jesse Watters suggesting there’s a massive coup underway against President Trump wasn’t the only strong declaration on Fox News last night.

Judge Jeanine Pirro, who last week called for a “cleansing” of the FBI and DOJ, stood by her comments and her belief that there is a “criminal cabal… who think they know better than we who our president should be.”

She briefly responded to being mocked by Stephen Colbert before acknowledging she’s doubling down, addressing the anti-Trump FBI texts and Peter Strzok‘s involvement in the Hillary Clinton investigation.

Pirro reiterated there was a group of “lawless individuals” who tried to take the decision of who gets to be president away from the American people, and when that failed, they “conspired… to bring down his presidency and his family as well.”

She concluded:

“The only thing that remains is whether we have the fortitude to not just fire these people immediately, but to take them out in cuffs.”

You may remember a recent New York Times report that said not only is Pirro’s show a “presidential favorite,” but she was in the White House mere weeks ago whipping up the President against Robert Mueller.
