In Private Meeting With Trump, Fox News Host Pushed For Special Counsel To Probe Hillary Clinton




During a private meeting with President Trump earlier this month, Fox News host Jeanine Pirro reportedly “excoriated” Attorney General Jeff Sessions for his refusal thus far to appoint a special prosecutor to probe former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton over the Uranium One deal, The New York Times reported.

“Everything I said to President Trump is exactly what I’ve vocalized on my show, ‘Justice with Jeanine,'” Pirro said in a statement to the Times.

“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.”



The Hill added:

Sessions was confirmed in February after several contentious hearings. Previously, he served as a Republican senator from Alabama. Trump himself has downplayed the likelihood that his administration will investigate Clinton, calling the 2016 election cycle “vicious.”

“Look, I want to move forward, I don’t want to move back,” Trump said in November 2016. “And I don’t want to hurt the Clintons. I really don’t. She went through a lot. And suffered greatly in many different ways. And I am not looking to hurt them at all.”
