While the rest of the country waits with bated breath to see whether or not the Senate will reach a deal that to prevent government shutdown, Fox News pundit Jeanine Pirro has taken to the woods of Chappaqua, New York — to find Hillary Clinton.
“Here I am in front of the woods in Chappaqua, looking for Hillary!” the controversial former judge said in a teaser video posted on Twitter Friday night.
“Do you think I’ll find her?” she asked.
Clinton’s penchant for woodland walks became something of a joke after she lost the 2016 election, when a hiker met the former Democratic nominee a mere day after she conceded the election to Donald Trump.

Trump supporters disrupt CNN’s live report from Michigan
During a live report from Michigan this Monday, CNN's Dianne Gallagher tried to relay developments in Lansing regarding certification of the state's election results, a group of Trump supporters in the background began drowning her out by chanting slogans, some using a bullhorn.
At one point, network anchor Brianna Keilar told Gallagher to hold her microphone closer so the audience could hear her words over the disruption.
Towards the end of the segment, the crowd started chanting, "CNN sucks!"

Trump surgeon general: ‘I’m begging’ White House staffers to avoid large holiday gatherings
Surgeon General Jerome Adams on Monday pleaded with all Americans -- including White House staffers -- to avoid large holiday gatherings this week.
Per CNN, Adams appeared on ABC's "Good Morning America" this week to discuss the dangers of mass family gatherings during Thanksgiving due to the novel coronavirus pandemic, which so far has killed more than 250,000 Americans in just nine months.
"I'm asking Americans -- and begging you -- hold on just a little bit longer," Adams said. "Keep Thanksgiving and the celebration small and smart this year."
There’s one word that can probably stop Trump from pardoning himself: Constitutional expert
President Donald Trump's authority to pardon himself may hinge on the arcane meaning of a single word.
The Constitution grants wide powers to a president to pardon, but the verb conferring those powers has a specific meaning that may render it impossible for Trump to issue one for his own crimes, according to constitutional law expert Eric Muller in a new column for The Atlantic.
"Article II of the Constitution says that the president 'shall have Power to grant Reprieves and Pardons for Offenses against the United States, except in Cases of Impeachment,'" Muller writes. "Did you catch that? The president has the power not to pardon people, but 'to grant … Pardons' (emphasis added). So the question is not whether Trump can pardon himself. It’s whether he can grant himself a pardon."
