Fox News host Jeanine Pirro again addressed the opening monologue on her Saturday night show directly to Bob Mueller.
Like last week, when she debuted a bonkers new theory and alleged that Mueller that he needed to hire his own criminal defense lawyer, Pirro again alleged that the former FBI director is a criminal.
This time, she tied him to the Benghazi conspiracy, a series of outlandish and interrelated right-wing claims about the attack on an embassy in Libya.
“When covert missions go wrong, the government calls in its own cleaner,” Pirro said. “And when things go terribly wrong for the Democrats, they don’t just call in a cleaner to get the job done, they call in someone who’s been in the clean-up business a long time, they call in the serial cleaner, former FBI director and current special prosecutor Bob Mueller.”
It’s all part of the efforts by the “Trump-hating deep state” to cover for Hillary Clinton’s performance in the 2016 election, she alleged.
“Bob, aren’t you embarrassed by this whole fiasco around you?” Pirro asked. “You’re panicking now, Bob. Because Donald Trump’s legal team doesn’t want him to talk to your team of Trump-haters.”
Pirro then tied Mueller to the Benghazi attack.
“Your credentials as a serial government cleaner are really good,” Pirro said. “You testified, after four Americans are killed in Benghazi, to cover for Hillary Clinton’s incompetence. Bob, why would you say that the FBI couldn’t get into Benghazi?”
‘You’re a witness — act like it’: Congresswoman owns Lewandowski when he tries to filibuster
Corey Lewandowski had a difficult time debating Democrats who treated him like a hostile witness in a Congressional hearing Tuesday. When he tried to go off on a tangent and complaint, Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA) wasn't having it.
"We’re seeing a pattern of the president doing anything and everything to hide his misconduct from Congress and from the American people," she said. "The president tried to get you to deliver a secret message to the attorney general, all in an attempt to prevent the special counsel from exposing the president’s own misconduct. As soon as the special counsel published his report and the president’s misconduct was exposed, the president tried to cover that up, too. Isn’t it true that the president has repeatedly tried to discredit your and other witnesses’ testimony to the special counsel in the published report?"
Edward Snowden responds after Trump DOJ sues whistleblower over new memoir the US government ‘does not want you to read’
The Justice Department filed suit the day Snowden's memoir Permanent Record was published.
Citing what First Amendment advocates have called an "unconstitutional" system of controlling what federal employees can and cannot say about their work, President Donald Trump's Justice Department on Tuesday filed a lawsuit against NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden over the publication of his new memoir.
Corey Lewandowski eventually proved Trump obstructed justice: former US attorney
Former U.S. Attorney Joyce Vance explained in her appearance on MSNBC Tuesday that Corey Lewandowski's attempts to plead "hatchetman privilege" weren't successful. He ultimately outed Trump for breaking the law.
Lewandowski attempted to claim that he couldn't answer any questions about special counsel Robert Mueller's account because he hadn't read it. But the information he personally gave to Mueller was enough to corner both men.
"I mean, Donald Trump has been found to have committed felony finance crimes by the Southern District of New York. Donald Trump has been found -- committed ten acts of criminal obstruction of justice by Robert Mueller and his investigators," host Nicolle Wallace said. "And I think what Ron was just sort of pulling the curtain back on is his suspicion that that may not be the headline, that Corey Lewandowski today confirmed at least two of those instances of criminal obstruction of justice."
