Will Judge Jeanine Pirro Replace Jeff Sessions As Attorney General?

Former prosecutor and Judge, Jeanine Pirro has "repeatedly told Trump's aides and advisers over the last 18 months that she's interested in taking over as the nation's top law enforcement official," according to Politico, citing four people familiar with the conversations.

Pirro first began talking with transition aides in late 2016 about joining the administration, according to Politico. Though she expressed interest in the attorney general job, when it became clear that job was going with Sessions, she began pushing for deputy attorney general, according to two Trump administration officials.

Since then, the nexus between the White House and Fox News has grown ever closer, as has Trump’s relationship with Pirro. The two speak by phone frequently and Trump, according to one person close to him, watches almost every episode of her Saturday evening show, “Justice with Judge Jeanine,” sometimes calling in. -Politico

Apparently, Trump is open to the idea - as Pirro, 67, has been a vocal supporter of his agenda - chastising allies for insufficient loyalty, while hammering the president's critics. 

Trump has dangled the possibility of giving her a top appointment. During a November meeting in the Oval Office, the president raised the possibility of nominating Pirro to a federal judgeship, according to a former administration official, though this person added that Trump was more likely engaging in flattery than seriously considering putting Pirro on the bench. -Politico

Two White House aides say Trump wasn't serious about the possibility, despite the President's long-standing frustration with Attorney General Jeff Sessions. That said, Trump did bring CNBC commentator Larry Kudlow on board as his top economic advisor. Pirro has denied ever speaking about the AG job with administration officials, according to The Hill.

Transition team officials also discussed the possibility of Pirro becoming the US attorney for the Eastern District of New York - which Trump reportedly favored but was ultimately dissuaded from offering. 

Pirro was elected Westchester County District Attorney in 1993, before challenging briefly challenging Hillary Clinton for New York's Senate seat in 2006. She ran later that year for NY Attorney General, losing to Andrew Cuomo. 

President Trump has been on Pirro's Fox News show twice since taking office, and gave the Judge a rare interview for her upcoming book "Liars, Leakers, and Liberals: The Case Against the Anti-Trump Conspiracy."

Better suggestion:
Replace Mueller and his team of Progs with Judge Pirro and let her go.

Odds are good that within 60 days there would be Grand Jury indictments against Obama, Soros, Clintons, Holder, Lynch, Brazil, Wasserman, Awans, Mueller, Rosenstein and many, many more.

yes, she did.  People don't kill people, fast cars kill people.  We need a ban on fast cars before she hurts herself.

 

Another point of view is that after Sandy Hook and the crackdown on guns in CT, she might have been running from their Utterly and completely corrupted state police.

I am from CT and left 8 years ago.  If I go back there to visit friends and family, I drive as fast I can to get the eff out of that fascist police state.

She would be fucking AWESOME!  She has a strong moral compass.  Knows what's right and what's wrong, and is not afraid to fight for real justice.  She is exactly what is needed to clean house and send the law breakers to jail.  This would be too good to be true.  She's a bit bull -- exactly what is needed.

It would be a smart way to get Hillary.  She can't play the Vag card with Janine, loses most of her power.  Hillary would have to go to her Depends card, that ain't gonna fly.....

Let's see Hill say "I can't remember" to Janine-  Janine will come locked and loaded for that one.

She is a tough straight shooter.

But how does she get confirmed?

He could do a recess appointment like Obama did, but congress kept the lights on last time so he could not appoint.

Or he could move Scott Pruitt who is a bulldog from EPA to AG because he is confirmed.

Starts with the Clinton's and Podesta's, FBI, NSA, CIA, DOJ clean-outs.... ENDS with the BUSHES for their absolute guilt and construction and willful domestic terrorist attacks committed by the Bush family and their cabinet ran by Cheney known as 9/11 - there, fixed it for ya!

P.S. Judge Napolitano for Deputy AG - watch for it. AS WELL... look for Trumps cabinet to be completely fired and redone again... only this time with the operators he really wants to get the US back on track....

WHICH...

Should scare the living unholy hell outta the deep state. Those things, the creatures called Macron, Merkel and well Theresa May... we didn't forget you and your Luciferian overlords of filch the Rothschild's and the Vatican. London bankers gotta die or be thrown into the pit of churning razors. Either way, haha, I love a good Iron Maiden shall we!

As someone who was once served and left the mechanism because it was so deeply murderously corrupted...

WE ARE NOW FINALLY BACK IN POSITION AND COMING FOR YOU... EVEN TO HELL AND BACK TO DRAG YOU OUT OF HELL SO WE CAN GIVE YOU THE HELL YOU SO RIGHTEOUSLY DESERVE.

 

Pirro... If this goes down, and I were Hillary... it's suicide time and they, her masters and overlords because she is just middle management anyway, are without a doubt going to kill her. She can never be put into a position to speak or be legitimately interrogated. She is a Loretta Lynch pin that could literally unravel the entire mechanism of deception and this the actual powers that be... they'll pull a Spade or Bourdain her... ain't that right there Hillary? You need to join the list of all whom you've murdered you piece of human fecal material.

His name was SETH RICH! WE HAVE NOT FORGOTTEN HILLARY! My only real bitch in life is that I'm not going to get to watch the death throttle out of your throat when your cancerous satanic life goes under. I do dare to dream though!

Hey Sessions... from me to you, you're a nothing of a gagging slack jawed toothless *aggot what ought to be facing your own warrant. Sessions is without a doubt a deep state protector, terminate this cancerous rot with prejudice Mr. President and lets get on with some the key arrests. Immunity for NO ONE. Let the death penalty of "to die or not to die" be their choices of rolling over on their diseased brethren. NO IMMUNITY TO ANYONE. If you Mr. President are really serious about justice, you'll go personally and collect Assange and Snowden... two who have helped you tremendously and of whom BOTH were the actual guarantee this family voted for you. Where once my eyes were blind, now MILLIONS HAVE SEEN the TRUTH because of these men of extraordinary courage.

Pirro is a nightmare for the evil doers of this nation and a solid choice if ever to create a rapier wind of justice.

LADY JUSTICE PIRRO! Ewwww man I like the sound of that. SHE WILL WRECK IT! She's a fierce and very bold choice to lead America back from the brink.

P.S. Hell hath no furry as a woman's scorn... ain't that right Hillary?

She's a great candidate for my bed overlooking the sea. 

As for a government appointment, I think she has a bit of a hubby problem that unfortunately would allow her opponents to drag her and her family through so much mud that her star would be tarnished from the day she started.

Sessions has to go, that's for sure...but who, how and when remain the difficult issues. And don't forget that old buzzard neck McConnell over in the Senate is doing everything he can to defend his old buddy Sessions. I am rather certain that the real reason McConnell cancelled the Senate summer recess is so that Trump would not be able to replace Sessions with a recess appointment.
