Fox’s Jeanine Pirro: Mueller ‘is the person who should be’ investigated
Fox News contributor Jeanine Pirro said Friday that special counsel Robert Mueller “is the person who should be investigated,” instead of President Trump.
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.
