Pirro: Comey Made Sure Mueller Was Appointed to “Cover Their Butts”

As reported by FoxNews

In her Opening Statement, Judge Jeanine Pirro called the Hillary Clinton probe “rigged” and “as dirty as it gets.”

Pirro said Attorney General Jeff Sessions ordered the Justice Department to allocate sufficient resources to complete a thorough investigation of the foundation.

She said the foundation engaged in pay-for-play type activities while the Clintons were in government.

Regarding the Clinton email probe, Pirro said former FBI Director James Comey exonerated Clinton and made sure that Robert Mueller would become the special counsel in the Trump and Clinton probes.

She said the actions were “as dirty as it gets,” pointing to Comey’s history as a deputy attorney general and Mueller’s past FBI directorship — both of which fell while Hillary was in public office.

“[Comey] made sure Bob Mueller would be appointed so they could cover their own butts [and] point the finger at [President Trump],” she said.
