'How Dare You!': Judge Jeanine Slams Top FBI, DOJ Officials Who 'Conspired' Against Trump
Judge Jeanine Pirro said the Republican memo on purported government surveillance abuses reveals a conspiracy against President Donald Trump.
"Members of the highest echelon in our FBI and Department of Justice conspired to prevent an outsider from breaking the establishment's stranglehold on the American people," Judge Jeanine said in her opening statement Saturday night.
She explained that officials at the FBI and Justice Department used the unverified anti-Trump dossier to secure surveillance warrants on at least one member of the Trump campaign, according to the memo.
"They needed a reason to spy, so they made one up," Judge Jeanine said. "They swore to facts they knew were lies to get what they wanted, in order to surveil a candidate they could not imagine being president. A cabal of arrogant, condescending employees of our government -- whose salaries we pay -- thought that we didn't count."
She said top FBI and Justice Department officials favored Hillary Clinton, so they weaponized powerful tools of intelligence against Trump when he was a presidential candidate, president-elect and duly elected president.
"This is what they do in third world countries, not in America," Judge Jeanine said. "The arrogance of those seeking a change in a presidential election is unheard of in the United States."
She said this scandal isn't about playing partisan politics or condemning the FBI and Justice Department as institutions.
"It's about the attempt to change the course of American history using the most powerful agencies in the United States government. How dare you!"
