Fiery Judge Jeanine Slams Obama: 'Why Are You So Obsessed With Russia?'
Saturday on "Justice", Judge Jeanine Pirro responded to President Obama's order that US intelligence agencies investigate Russian interference in the 2016 election, and submit the results of their studies to him before he leaves office in January.
"Seriously? Why Now?" Pirro said, " You have been watching the release of information from WikiLeaks for months. You have watched the release of Hillary Clinton's emails [and] John Podesta's emails, and the disturbing information contained therein."
Pirro said Obama's order is an attempt to prevent President-elect Donald Trump from experiencing a smooth transition of power, due to the president's inability to process the New York businessman's electoral victory.
"Why are you so obsessed with Russia? You, who cut a deal and were made a fool of by... Iran-- you know the one that funds Hezbollah and Hamas and whose people yell 'Death to America'."
Pirro noted Hillary too has blamed Moscow for interfering in the election, and said leading Democrats' narratives have been part of an effort to "build a wall" to prevent Trump from "making America great again".
"I despise all dictators, but between the dictator that thinks I'm an infidel and [wants to] have our heads cut off and the dictator from whom I simply want to keep my distance... the choice is a no-brainer," she said.
