Pirro: Feds Going After Manafort 'Because They Want to Squeeze Him' for Trump Info
Judge Jeanine Pirro reacted to the trial of former Trump adviser Paul Manafort, which is ongoing in federal court in Alexandria, Va.
Sean Hannity asked Pirro about Manafort's tax evasion and bank fraud case, in which he could spend the rest of his life in prison if convicted.
Hannity said gangster "Sammy the Bull" Gravano was offered a sweetheart deal by prosecutors to flip on John Gotti Sr., even though Gravano confessed he was involved in 19 murders.
"How often do they offer deals like this?" Hannity asked.
Pirro said that federal prosecutors often have a political agenda, and that they will often "determine whether or not they want to forgive someone" based on their own personal views.
"They're going after [Manafort] because they want to squeeze him" for damning information on President Trump, she said.
Hannity said a top prosecutor on Mueller's team, Andrew Weissmann, previously saw a major case overturned 9-0 by the Supreme Court, and also saw four finance executives he indicted get freed from prison after a year.
Hannity and Pirro also discussed the Manafort case with former New York Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik, who said that special counsel Robert Mueller "weaponized" the justice system.
