Judge Jeanine on FBI corruption: ‘Take them out in cuffs’ RussellReno / CCL; BY-YOUR-⌘ / CCL

The black eye on the FBI continues to grow as more information comes out about top officials and their efforts to both keep Hillary Clinton from having to answer for her actions — and do whatever it took to attack Donald Trump. The calls for justice have reached a fever pitch, as Americans question why the agency tasked with law enforcement is engaged in so much lawlessness.

Now a Fox News host has openly called for the arrest of the parties involved — again. In her show’s monologue, Judge Jeanine Pirro reiterated that “it’s time to take them out in cuffs,” and called former Acting Director Andrew McCabe the “consigliere of the FBI crime family.”

Pirro Doubles Down

Last week, Pirro said, “Cardinal [James] Comey destroyed our FBI with political hacks to set events in motion to destroy the Republic, because they didn’t like the man we chose.” The judge said she got a great deal of blowback for those remarks, especially from The Late Show host Stephen Colbert, whom she invited onto her show to “say what he said, to my face.”

Saturday night Pirro reiterated that “this is worse than even I imagined.” She went on:

Members of the FBI and the Department of Justice — some of whom ended up on Bob Mueller’s team to prosecute Donald Trump — did everything they could to exonerate Hillary Clinton for her crimes and incriminate Donald Trump with a non-existent crime.

Top FBI counterintelligence agent Peter Strzok, a virulently pro-Hillary and anti-Trump federal law enforcement officer on the Hillary investigation, changed the phrase “grossly negligent” to “extremely careless” in a description of Hillary’s actions given by James Comey.

The change took away criminal penalties off the table for Hillary in the email scandal, and ensured she would once again escape justice.

The Plot Thickens

Texts exchanged between Strzok and FBI lawyer Lisa Page show that not only was Strzok having an affair with Page, but that they saw themselves as destined to “protect” the U.S. from then-candidate Donald Trump. One text from Page to Strzok read, “Maybe you’re meant to stay where you are because you’re meant to protect the country from that menace,” apparently referring to Trump.

Another text appears to refer to a meeting held about the time the FBI started investigating Donald Trump. Politico reports:

“I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in Andy’s office — that there’s no way he gets elected — but I’m afraid we can’t take that risk,” Strzok wrote to Page in August 2016.

It’s unclear who Andy is, but other messages suggest he may be FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe.

The texts show a bias so deep that Strzok was the last person who should have been anywhere near an investigation into either candidate.

Arrogance

Pirro said that “there’s a core group of arrogant, corrupt and lawless individuals that felt that they, and not we, should decide a presidential election.”

The real question, she pointed out, is whether we as a people “have the fortitude to not just fire these people immediately, but to take them out in cuffs.”
