Listening to host after host at Fox News — aka Trump State Media — you’d think President Donald Trump had never done anything wrong. That he is the focus of an investigation merely because he’s such a standup guy who has never done anything the least bit questionable, unethical, or illegal.
The Russia investigation, the hosts assert, is just a silent coup being orchestrated by the “deep state” within the FBI, CIA, and NSA.
Fox host Jeanine Pirro, however, just upped the ante when it comes to the Russia probe, saying on her show Saturday evening that some “cleansing” needs to be done at the FBI. Apparently, if the FBI doesn’t march in lockstep with Trump and his dictates, they’re traitors.
“There is a cleansing needed in our FBI and Department of Justice — it needs to be cleansed of individuals who should not just be fired. But who need to be taken out in cuffs.”
Interesting to note that when the FBI investigated Hillary Clinton, they were heroes. Even Donald Trump said how brave James Comey was to reopen the email investigation shortly before the election was held. But now that the shoe is on the other foot, the FBI is suddenly analogous to the Gestapo in the fevered brains of the far right.
While she was standing on her soapbox with her tinfoil hat planted on her head, Pirro also said there’s a cabal of people in the FBI and Department of Justice who are trying to destroy Trump. (As if he needs any help in that regard.)
Pirro suggested that “examples need to be made” because “corruption and lawlessness” are rampant at both the DOJ and FBI. She offered no proof of her specious claims, however.
Here’s a better idea: We make an example of anyone who has unreported contacts with Russia or does business with shady Russian companies and oligarchs that are also known to launder money for organized crime families. Let’s go after suspected traitors and collaborators who are a threat to our national security.
