Fox's Jeanine Pirro: Mueller ‘is the person who should be’ investigated

Fox News contributor Jeanine Pirro said Friday that special counsel Robert MuellerRobert (Bob) MuellerSenate Democrats urge Garland not to fight court order to release Trump obstruction memo Why a special counsel is guaranteed if Biden chooses Yates, Cuomo or Jones as AG Barr taps attorney investigating Russia probe origins as special counsel MORE "is the person who should be investigated," instead of President TrumpDonald TrumpGraham says he hopes that Trump runs again Trump says Stacey Abrams 'might be better than existing governor' Kemp Executive privilege fight poses hurdles for Trump MORE.

Her comments follow a new list of indictments released by Mueller against Russians for meddling in the 2016 election. 

Pirro, one of TV's most vocal pro-Trump pundits, dismissed the "Russian so-called interference" in an appearance on host Sean Hannity's program, and she and Hannity discussed accusations of political bias on the special counsel's team. 

"I look at Mueller's team: Obama donors, Clinton donors, DNC donors. Nobody likes Trump," Hannity said, adding that he wants to know the reason behind Mueller's appointment of "Trump haters" to his team investigating the Russia case.

“Because Robert Mueller is not looking for an objective team. Robert Mueller is looking for people with an agenda against Donald Trump. Robert Mueller is the person who should be being investigated, given the fact that he was the head of the FBI when this attempt to find our uranium started in 2009," she said. 

Pirro said the sale of a Canadian uranium company with holdings in the U.S. to Russia under the watch of Mueller when he was director of the FBI was the "real crime." 

"He knew all about it, and yet he’s investigating Donald Trump? He should be the one who’s being investigated!" she said. 

Mueller's team has faced criticism by Republicans in Congress who say that the investigation was prompted from evidence of unverified allegations against Trump and is effectively an effort to undermine the presidency. 

But the indictments released on Friday were celebrated by the White House as proof Trump's campaign did not collude with Russia. The investigation into Russian meddling into the election and possible collusion between Moscow and campaign officials is ongoing.
