On last night’s “Justice,” Judge Jeanine Pirro said that Hillary Clinton doesn't have the integrity, transparency and honesty to be the next president.

"As much as I want a woman president, the latest news of deleting emails and keeping communications with her highest level staff outside of government servers, ignoring it until it became clear it wasn't going away, tells me that Hillary Clinton is not about transparency and is not about integrity," Judge Jeanine stated.

"Look, I want a woman president. It is time for a woman president. Hell, we haven't done so great with some of the men we put there. But we need a woman who's honest, transparent, in the mold of Margaret Thatcher or Golda Meir."

"Yes, we need a woman president. But not this woman."

Watch Judge Jeanine's opening statement above and read the full transcript below.


Alright, so she used her private email and she communicated with her top level staff through their private emails. Who cares? Will this impact your decision on whether to vote for Hillary Clinton for president?

Of course not. You won't even remember this kerfuffle next year. But the question is much deeper than that. The question becomes: does Hillary Clinton have the integrity to be the President of the United States of America, the leader of the free world? Does Hillary Clinton have the instincts to protect us, someone other than herself?

And as much as I want a woman president, the latest news of deleting emails and keeping communications with her highest level staff outside of government servers, ignoring it until it became clear it wasn't going away, tells me that Hillary Clinton is not about transparency and is not about integrity, that she does whatever she wants regardless of the rules.

And nobody knows scandal or loopholes better than this woman who has danced with special prosecutors, federal investigators and subpoenas for most of her professional career. It's simply part of her history.

Now Congressman Trey Gowdy, head of the Benghazi Committee, wants to give her the benefit of the doubt, saying but "it wouldn't be reasonable for her to be on her way to Libya to discuss Libyan policy and there are no emails from the trip."

And I’m going to shock you tonight, in spite of my law enforcement background, to me this email investigation is almost irrelevant.

Hillary Clinton knows exactly what she's doing. What matters to her is making history by becoming the first woman president. The rules simply don't apply to her.

She is so brazen that she arrogantly walks to the podium as if to say "children, let me school you and don't question me."

There’s no apology, no acknowledgement, no reservation

It's a simple “you're not going to see the server. I'm not going to tell you who decided what was and was not personal. And I never emailed any classified information. Just trust me.” Take a listen:

“I did not email any classified material to anyone on my email. There is no classified material.” – Clinton on March 10

So, if the top three in her department, her chief of staff, her lawyer Cheryl Mills and her assistant reportedly use their personal emails, that tells me number one, that she's never discussed classified information with her top staff. And two, that if she did, it was never captured.

So you tell me, what was the secretary of state doing if she wasn't discussing top level classified issues with her top advisors? What was she doing, picking paint chips out for the White House?

Now we already know she wasn't busy providing Ambassador Stevens with the security he needed in spite of his repeated pleas. And Congressman Gowdy says that there are gaps of months of no emails from the secretary about Benghazi.

So will Hillary Clinton continue to evade and two step the hard issues? Look, we can't have a president who lacks transparency and integrity or a president where scandals are just a part of daily briefings.

Look, I want a woman president. It is time for a woman president. Hell, we haven't done so great with some of the men we put there. But we need a woman who's honest, transparent, in the mold of Margaret Thatcher or Golda Meir.

Yes, we need a woman president. But not this woman.
