Judge and Fox News host Jeanine Pirro is getting set to fight Fire and Fury — and she could be bringing President Donald Trump with her.

According to a Saturday report from The New York Times, Pirro met with the president in the Oval Office last week to discuss interviewing him for a book that may rebut Michael Wolff’s Fire And Fury.

Sources say that Trump agreed to be interviewed for Pirro’s upcoming book, Liars, Leakers and Liberals, which the Times alleges she pitched to the president as a rebut to Wolff’s book. As such, some in the West Wing have reportedly dubbed the work, “No Fire, No Fury,” though Pirro says that isn’t all the book will cover.

“My upcoming book is not a direct response to Fire and Fury,” Pirro said in a statement to the Times provided by Fox News. “The title on Amazon always has been and continues to be Liars, Leakers and Liberals, and I plan to cover all of them.”

No Fire, No Fury

According to sources in the administration, Pirro, who has been an outspoken defender of the president, is looking to give Trump a chance to respond to Wolff’s accusations, which include that the president is unstable, runs a chaotic White House, and has had an affair with U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley.

“For weeks, the president has seethed about the depiction of him in Fire and Fury as a volatile and ill-equipped chief executive, even asking the White House counsel and allies whether a libel lawsuit against Mr. Wolff is still possible,” according to the Times. 

The president’s wife, Melania, has also been forced to refute a variety of unfounded claims from the book, including that she cried when her husband won the 2016 election. The first lady has since hired a communications manager to help her handle accusations like these.

Wolff claimed to have interviewed over 200 sources for his book, though a January poll reported that only 13 percent of voters feel the work is credible.

Liars, Leakers and Liberals

Pirro’s book, which is set to be released on June 12, has been described by the publisher as “Judge Jeanine’s no-holds-barred answer to fake news.”

The book will also reportedly “defend Mr. Trump against the news media, which ‘has twisted his words to fit the narrative they’ve created.'”

According to the Times, Pirro also plans to interview the president’s daughter Ivanka for the book, which is being published by Center Street, a division of Hachette.

Pirro will have some competition upon publication, however, as other high-profile former administration officials have plans to release their own inside looks into the Trump White House this summer. Former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer plans to publish a memoir titled The Briefing in July, which will reportedly serve as an account of his time serving the president.

Former FBI Director James Comey’s memoir, A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies and Leadership, is set to be released in April.

Whether Pirro’s book directly responds to Fire and Fury or not, there is no doubt that conservatives across the nation are itching to read it. It may be one of the only fair accounts of the Trump White House that we get.
