We must be living in some alternative universe, because even Fox News is coming to Hillary Clinton’s defense over the FBI’s letter reopening Clinton’s email investigation.
Jeanine Pirro, a Fox News host and HUGE supporter of Donald Trump, defended Clinton on her show Saturday night over the timing of FBI Director James Comey’s announcement that his agency is looking into new emails related to the probe of Clinton’s private email server.
She derided Comey and the FBI for making the announcement so close to Election Day, comparing the timing of Comey’s announcement to that of an investigation centering around her when she was running for New York attorney general in 2006. “In the home stretch of a statewide campaign, the Justice Department and the FBI violated their own policy against making public statements that would affect an election, and announced to the press that they were opening an investigation of me,” Pirro said, adding that it was “mean-spirited” and nothing came of it. She lost that race due to the “adverse publicity.” Pirro continued: “What was done to me in 2006 was wrong. And what happened to Hillary Clinton yesterday was equally wrong.”
