Last night while subbing for Sean Hannity on his Fox News show, Judge Jeanine Pirro asked the panel, “Is Mueller a greater threat than [Russian President Vladimir] Putin to this country?”
As it turns out, that question was just her warm-up act. During the opening monologue of her own show Saturday night, Pirro unraveled a massive conspiracy-laden yarn involving Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska, the FBI, and Hillary Clinton that painted Mueller as the one who should really be seeking a criminal defense attorney.
“Why did it take us four months to find out why you fired Peter Strzok?” Pirro said during a lengthy and winding accusation of Mueller who she repeatedly referred to as “Bob.”
“Why would you ask for millions of dollars from a Russian oligarch, banned from the United States, to fund an FBI operation? Should you even have asked the oligarch for tens of millions of dollars and for his services? Because that is a crime, isn’t it, Bob?” she continued on.
“I’m sure you know the anti-deficiency act prohibits you as a government agency from accepting voluntary services. And if it came out that you took money, Bob, from a Russian oligarch whose name you intentionally left out of [Paul] Manafort‘s indictment, that would be an embarrassment, wouldn’t it? Isn’t that why you never put his name in the Manafort indictment?” she further accused.
Finally drawing her riff to a close, Pirro said, “Isn’t your whole investigation premised on the fake dossier paid for by Hillary, created by a man that hates Donald Trump and used to con a FISA court judge? Bob, I really think it is time for you to give up your phony investigation and get yourself your own criminal defense attorney.”
