Pirro on Clinton Emails: 'There Is a Conspiracy Here, End of Story'
Judge Jeanine Pirro and defense attorney Robert Bianchi sounded off tonight on Hillary Clinton’s email controversy and an Associated Press lawsuit against the State Department.
Clinton claims she has handed over government-related records from her email account, but she admits that she has deleted emails she deemed “personal.” The former secretary of state says she will not hand over her server to a third party.
Today, the Associated Press sued the State Department for records from Clinton’s time as secretary of state following repeated FOIA requests that went unfulfilled.
Pirro said that there’s “no question” that Clinton violated State Department rules. Pirro told Sean Hannity that the first thing she would do as prosecutor would be to get a subpoena for Clinton’s server.
“These are records that we are entitled to see,” Pirro said.
The “Justice” host said that the Associated Press or House Select Committee on Benghazi could gain access to Clinton’s server with a subpoena if either could show that there’s a probability that something is awry here.
“I would argue in that request that this whole setup was designed to defy freedom of information, designed to defy classified information,” Pirro said.
Bianchi disagreed, arguing that Clinton may not have been acting illegally as long as the emails she sent went to workers’ government accounts.
But Pirro noted that Clinton’s close aides Cheryl Mills and Huma Abedin didn’t use government email.
“There is a conspiracy here, Sean, period, end of the story.”
