Fox News host, author, and former judge, prosecutor, and politician from New York, Judge Jeanine Pirro, is not one to mince her words. And BOY did she let former FBI Director James Comey have it this past weekend.
Judge Jeanine ripped into James Comey’s recent comments regarding Attorney General Anthony Barr’s remarks about campaign spying.
Comey, referring to Barr and his “spying” testimony, said, “I really don’t know what [Barr]’s talking about, when he talks about spying on the [Trump] campaign. When I hear that kind of language used, it’s concerning, because the FBI and the Department of Justice conduct court-ordered electronic surveillance.”
Jeanine explained that not only is Comey considered one of the least trusted figures in Government, but that Comey himself admitted that it was “not true” a spy was inserted into the Trump campaign when asked the question a year ago.
How did he “know?” When he said, smirking, “I don’t find it possible, and I KNOW IT NOT TO BE TRUE,” how was he certain back then there was no spy?
Judge Jeanine states that Comey was nothing but a lying political hack.

According to Breitbart:
Saturday on Fox News Channel’s “Justice,” host Jeanine Pirro contended “the chickens have come home to roost,” referring to the left and the media reaction to Attorney General William Barr’s claim before the House Appropriations Committee last week that the U.S. government spied on the 2016 Trump presidential campaign.
Pirro criticized a number of those associated with the alleged effort, including former FBI Director James Comey.
“Jim, don’t act so pompous saying we don’t spy,” she said. “That the word should be the human source and act like you didn’t do what you did. And I don’t care if you call it a spy, human source, intelligent seeker, gather or a ghost — a spy is a spy. And rose by any other name is still a rose. And by the way, in the first application, that you signed, it says that not only do foreign powers engaged in spying the U.S. to obtain information but that Russia has tried to influence elections since the 1960s.”
“I’ll bet you never tried to wiretap Barack Obama’s campaign,” Pirro continued. “You couldn’t get Barr to recuse himself in your liberal friends couldn’t either. So, the liberal faculty circus will attempt to destroy him. I got the news. That’s never going to happen. The days of no accountability and no consequence are over. Jim, history will not work kindly on you. Bill Barr is everything you are not: a quiet professional, someone who understands that lady justice is blindfolded for a reason. The days of lies and coverups are over. Enjoy your freedom, Jim while you’ve got it.”
This cannot be just another matter that is brushed under the rug, never to be visited again.
The American people deserve to know the full truth about what is going on here. Accountability, and faith in our justice system, must be restored.
