“Nobody is looking at the corruption. It’s all one-sided, the corruption on the part of the Democrats," Pirro told radio host John Catsimatidis in an interview on AM 970 New York. "This president was framed. It’s that simple.”

“I’ve been in law enforcement for over three decades. This guy was framed," Pirro continued. "The crisscrossing and the incestuous nature of our government in an attempt to prevent the outsider president that we wanted from getting elected is frightening.” 

Pirro, a former judge and ardent supporter of Trump, echoed claims the president has made before that he was framed "for crimes he didn't commit."

In May, Trump tweeted an unverified claim that the FBI placed a mole in his campaign team and suggested that the agency was attempting to "frame" him for alleged wrongdoings associated with special counsel Robert MuellerRobert (Bob) Swan MuellerMueller report fades from political conversation Trump calls for probe of Obama book deal Democrats express private disappointment with Mueller testimony MORE's investigation into the Trump campaign and Russia.

Mueller's probe has ensnared several former members of Trump's campaign with criminal charges, including his former campaign chairman Paul Manafort, who was convicted last month of eight charges of bank and tax fraud.

Trump and his allies have repeatedly sought to discredit Mueller's investigation by declaring it a "witch hunt."

“That guy [Jeff] Sessions, he has no prosecutorial balls. It’s as simple as that. … He’s hiding in the corner. I don’t know what he’s doing,” she said.

Sessions has drawn the president’s ire since he recused himself from Mueller's investigation. Trump has repeatedly slammed the probe and called on Sessions to take a tougher stance against Mueller's team.

Amid murmurings that the president could fire Sessions soon, Trump told Bloomberg News earlier this week that he likely wouldn’t fire Sessions before November’s midterm elections. While some Republican senators have opposed such a move, others close to Trump have expressed openness to the idea now.
