During a private meeting with President Trump, Fox News host Jeanine Pirro tore into Attorney General Jeff Sessions for his refusal thus far to appoint a special prosecutor to probe Hillary Clinton over the Uranium One deal.
The New York Times reported that Pirro met with President Trump in early November during which she “excoriated” the attorney general for not investigating Clinton.
The report follows weeks of critical coverage on Pirro’s show, “Justice with Judge Jeanine”, and elsewhere on Fox, of the 2016 deal that allowed a Russian nuclear agency to purchase Uranium One, a Canadian company that owns access to uranium in the U.S.
Clinton served as Secretary of State under former President Obama when the deal was approved by the inter-agency Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States.
Pirro has also called for an investigation into reports that former FBI Director James Comey began drafting a letter exonerating Clinton from wrongdoing in her private email server scandal months before the investigation concluded.
“Jeff Sessions needs to follow his prosecutorial instincts and open a federal criminal investigation into the actions of Hillary Rodham Clinton and impanel a grand jury immediately,” Pirro said in a September episode of her show. “This woman should not get a free pass because she lost an election. Her reign was one of bold, brazen in your face pay-to-play corruption.”
In a statement to the Times, Pirro confirmed that she had merely repeated these sentiments to Trump during their meeting.
“Everything I said to President Trump is exactly what I’ve vocalized on my show, ‘Justice with Jeanine,'” she told the newspaper.
Sessions was confirmed to be Trump’s attorney general in February after a contentious confirmation period. Previously, he served as a Republican senator from Alabama.
In the past, Trump himself has downplayed the likelihood that his administration will investigate Clinton, calling the 2016 election cycle “vicious.”
With all the evidence he has no doubt seen against her since becoming President, we shall see if his opinion remains the same.
