If you thought that President Trump and members of the Trump administration were sweating the news that a grand jury has been impaneled by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, then something said Friday morning on Fox News proves that the network clearly has their noses stuck straight up the presidential wazoo.
Appearing on Fox & Friends, Fox host Jeanine Pirro was discussing the grand jury situation and noted that she’s sure Trump is upset to hear the news:
“I’m sure this is on Donald’s mind, he never stops thinking. But at the same time, this is an agenda.”
And then Pirro decided to try and stir up the rabid Trumpkins watching at home by suggesting there would be violence if Trump or members of his family are indicted:
“Here is my concern. If they end up with an indictment against a family member, just to get at Donald Trump because they couldn’t get at him, there is going to be a real uproar, a real uprising in this country.”
While she was at it, Pirro also tried to impugn the American judicial system by declaring:
“I was a prosecutor for 32 years, you can indict a ham sandwich. The only person in that grand jury is the district attorney who is interacting all of those grand jurors on what the law is — and the body language is clear!”
What’s so damn ironic is that Pirro and her cohorts on the far right were shouting “lock her up!” not long ago when it came to Hillary Clinton. They were screaming for a grand jury to indict Clinton. But now they have a problem with the grand jury system.
Maybe Pirro and her fellow Fox Newsers should pack their bags and move to Russia if they have a problem with how we do things in this country.
