JUST IN: A major announcement was just made about White House Special Counsel Robert Mueller that could change everything.
Fox News host Judge Jeanine Pirro went rogue on Friday night when she said that White House Special Counsel Robert Mueller “is the person who should be investigated,” instead of President Donald Trump. Her comments came immediately after a new list of indictments released by Mueller against Russians for meddling in the 2016 election.
The Hill reported that Pirro slammed the “Russian so-called interference” in an appearance on host Sean Hannity’s show, and she and Hannity discussed accusations of political bias on the special counsel’s team.
“I look at Mueller’s team: Obama donors, Clinton donors, DNC donors. Nobody likes Trump,” Hannity said, going on to say that he wants to know the reason behind Mueller’s appointment of “Trump haters” to his team investigating the Russia case.
“Because Robert Mueller is not looking for an objective team,” she said. “Robert Mueller is looking for people with an agenda against Donald Trump. Robert Mueller is the person who should be being investigated, given the fact that he was the head of the FBI when this attempt to find our uranium started in 2009.”
Pirro went on to say that the sale of a Canadian uranium company with holdings in the U.S. to Russia under the watch of Mueller when he was director of the FBI was the “real crime.”
“He knew all about it, and yet he’s investigating Donald Trump? He should be the one who’s being investigated!” she said.
Republicans in Congress have long criticized Mueller’s team, saying that the investigation was prompted from evidence of unverified allegations against Trump and is effectively an effort to undermine the presidency. The White House celebrated Friday’s indictments as they claimed they were proof that Trump never colluded with Russia.
