Jeanine Pirro Returns to Fox News, Calls for Trump’s Accusers to Face ‘Behind the Bars Justice’

After two weeks off the air, Fox News’ Judge Jeanine Pirro was back on her show on Saturday.

Her appearance marks the first time she has been on the air since her controversial ‘hijab’ comments about Rep. Ilhan Omar.

During her opening, Pirro wasted no time slamming President Donald Trump‘s enemies but did not mention that flap that caused Fox News to condemn her remarks and her show to be bumped for two weeks.

Instead, she focused on the “traitorous, treasonous” Trump accusers she insisted were laying a blueprint for a “future effort to overthrow the government.”

“Unless we make an example of the traitorous, treasonous group that accused Donald Trump of being an agent of the Russian government and as they spewed their hate I want to know who the unmasking, who did the leaking and if we don’t have a consequence of the highest level of government are not held responsible for this then it is a blueprint for a future effort to overthrow the government. Don’t be satisfied with the Mueller report. This is bound to happen again because these arrogant, condescending, leaking lying haters of you and me and the America that doesn’t have power will do it again unless we stop them in the only way to stop them is with justice, true justice and that is behind the bars justice. With this justice.”

On Friday, Pirro was set to return to the Fox News during an appearance with Sean Hannity. That appearance, however, was canceled due to a family emergency.

Pirro also did not mention the family emergency in her open.

She did, however, end the show by thanking her “loyal Fox News channel viewers .”
