Appearing on Fox & Friends on Friday morning, weekend Fox News host Jeanine Pirro warned that, should prosecutors indict a Trump family member on criminal charges, there will be hell to pay with the American public.
Addressing reports that at least one grand jury is investigating President Donald Trump and his associates, the former prosecutor excitedly stated that it probably is concerning to Trump that he is being persecuted.
“I’m sure this is on Donald’s mind, he never stops thinking,” she explained. “But at the same time, this is an agenda.”
“Here is my concern,” Pirro told the Fox & Friends hosts. “If they end up with an indictment against a family member, just to get at Donald Trump because they couldn’t get at him, there is going to be a real uproar, a real uprising in this country.”
Pirro went on to add, “I was a prosecutor for 32 years, you can indict a ham sandwich. The only person in that grand jury is the district attorney who is interacting all of those grand jurors on what the law is — and the body language is clear!”

Dalai Lama says President Trump has a ‘lack of moral principle’
During an interview with the BBC’s Rajini Vaidyanathan, the Dalai Lama weighed in on everything from Donald Trump’s presidency to Brexit — and the Tibetan spiritual leader clearly isn’t a fan of Trump’s isolationist views.
“When he became president, he expressed, ‘America first.’ That is wrong,” the Dalai Lama told Vaidyanathan. “America, they should take the global responsibility.”
The Dalai Lama also described the U.S. president as scatterbrained, saying that his “emotions” are a “little bit too complicated.”
Fox News mocks Beto O’Rourke’s debate performance: He looked ‘as miserable as a dog in a thunderstorm’
Former Rep. Beto O'Rourke (D-TX) did his best to stand out at the first Democratic debate on Thursday night, breaking into fluent Spanish in his opening segment and competing with fellow Texan Julián Castro for the spotlight.
But the morning crew at Fox News was not impressed by his performance, lambasting him for looking "miserable."
"Neediness can be charming in a candidate to a certain degree," said political analyst Chris Stirewalt. "Especially for Castro, who couldn’t speak Spanish as well as his fellow Texan, Beto O'Rourke."
"O'Rourke, though — no matter what language he was doing, he seemed sad. He seemed unhappy. He seemed uncomfortable to be there," said Stirewalt. "He seemed like he was doing this all through a prism of real social discomfort, and I don't know what happens for him from here. He, of anybody on the stage, needed that night to get back into the second tier to show that he was doing it, and he looked as miserable as a dog in a thunderstorm."
First Democratic debate: Elizabeth Warren persists — but Julián Castro is the star
With two dozen candidates announced and the possibility of ousting Donald Trump in the 2020 elections on voters' brains, the anticipation for the first of many Democratic primary debates, held in Miami on Wednesday night, was at a high pitch. But that can only be matched by the cynicism of our era. It was worth wondering whether, despite all the hype, this debate could even matter?
Good news, for once: The answer is yes.
Because most voters just vote for whoever their party nominates, debates don't matter "once we get to the general," University of Wisconsin political science professor Kenneth Mayer recently told Salon in a video interview.
