Judge Jeanine Pirro, host of “Justice with Judge Jeanine,” reportedly upset President Donald J. Trump during a meeting. According to a report in the New York Times, a Nov. 1 meeting that Pirro requested ended when Trump left the room abruptly.
According to the Times, the meeting was related to the Uranium One deal that transpired while failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was secretary of state. The deal put Russia in control of a portion of the U.S. uranium supply.
The Times reports that during that meeting, Pirro railed against special counsel Robert Mueller, who is conducting a criminal investigation into allegations that Russia interfered and possibly colluded with the Trump campaign during the 2016 election The Times says the president was upset by her remarks.
From the Times:
Mr. Trump, Mr. Kelly and Donald F. McGahn II, the White House counsel, met for more than an hour on Nov. 1 as Ms. Pirro whipped up the president against Mr. Mueller and accused James B. Comey, the former F.B.I. director, of employing tactics typically reserved for Mafia cases, according to a person briefed on the meeting.
The president became visibly agitated as she spoke.
She was not “helping things,” [Mr. Kelly] said, according to the person briefed.
Even Mr. Trump eventually tired of Ms. Pirro’s screed and walked out of the room, according to the person.
Comey, who Trump fired in May, claims that Trump once asked him to end the FBI’s investigation of former national security adviser Michael Flynn.
The Times notes that Pirro’s show is a favorite of the president’s, and their source, a “person briefed on the meeting,” is not named.
