Jeanine Pirro Says She’s Changed Her Mind About Rod Rosenstein: ‘I Don’t Want Him Fired’


Fox News Channel host Jeanine Pirro was a guest host on The Five today, and on the top of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, Pirro said she’s changed her mind.

“I don’t want him fired,” she now says.

Just a few days ago, in response to the New York Times article claiming Rosenstein considered invoking the 25th Amendment and the possibility of secretly recording the President, Pirro went off on him on Twitter.

Rosenstein should have been “fired long ago for being part of the ‘resistance’ and not providing documents to congress in order to save his corrupt pals,” she wrote. Then in all caps, “NOW HE MUST BE FIRED.”

Today she says she has a different idea.

“I’ve got to tell you, this guy Rosenstein, you know, it doesn’t matter. To me, the New York Times article doesn’t matter, Juan,” she said. “Because the first time I heard that he wrote the memo telling the president all the reasons why Comey should be fired, and now is in charge of the investigation that includes part of it the president may have obstructed justice in the firing of Comey. Once I found out that Rosenstein had signed one of the FISA applications and one of the recurring applications which required additional information. And then you find out that Rosenstein, when he appears before Congress, has this smug look like yeah, we’ll get you the reports. ‘We’re working on it. We’re working on it’, then all the reports are redacted. I say to myself, ‘Self, what is this guy doing controlling this investigation? He should be fired.But now? I don’t want him fired.”

“I don’t want him fired. I don’t want the president firing him,” she said again. “I want the memos to come out. I think that there is something in the memos.”
