Judge Jeanine slams Comey over Clinton email probe

Fox News host Jeanine Pirro slammed FBI Director James Comey for sending a letter to lawmakers Friday about newly discovered emails that may be related to the investigation into Hillary Clinton's private server as secretary of State.

"Whether it's Hillary Clinton or anyone else, Comey's actions violate not only longstanding justice department policy, the directive of a person he works under the attorney general, but even more important, the most fundamental rules of fairness and impartiality," said Pirro during her Saturday show, “Justice with Judge Jeanine.”

Pirro said Comey's letter, sent 11 days before the presidential election, "disgraces and politicizes the FBI and is symptomatic of all that is wrong in Washington."

Pirro, who is supporting Donald Trump, is a consistent critic of Clinton. But in her Saturday comments she recalled her own experience running for attorney general of New York in 2006, blaming her loss on the FBI and Justice Department's announcement that she was under investigation.

"What was done to me in 2006 was wrong and what happened to Hillary Clinton yesterday was equally wrong," she said.
