In her Opening Statement, Judge Jeanine Pirro blasted the Department of Justice (DOJ) after its inspector general, Michael Horowitz, released his long-awaited report on the actions of the DOJ and FBI in the handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation.

Pirro said Saturday that she was "dumbfounded, disheartened and disappointed" over the report.

She also said that it's "nothing more than proof the deep state is alive and well in Washington, D.C."

"[Former FBI Director James] Comey and his FBI cabal fixed a case. Hillary … not indicted for her crimes. Yet an effort to frame Donald Trump for no crime," she said.

Horowitz also said the DOJ found no evidence that the Clinton email probe was affected by bias.

Pirro said that the text messages exchanged between FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page not only indicate "a biased, hateful state of mind," they imply a willingness to take action to impact the election.

Pirro also said that the email scandal is about "a deep state trying to drag a crook across the presidential finish line."

"How do you pledge resistance against a president while you are investigating him?" Pirro said

"Comey didn't just deviate from well-established practices. He didn't even do an investigation."

Judge Jeanine called Horowitz's report "a whitewash of the deep state by the deep state itself" and said that great people within the FBI know how badly Comey "destroyed America's confidence" within the bureau.

"It's time for those people who are not interested in supporting President Trump to get out of his way. That means you, Jeff Sessions," she said of the country's attorney general.
