Fox News host Judge Jeanine Pirro has blasted former FBI Director James Comey for acting like a “predator” who sought “revenge” by leaking memos pertaining to his private interactions with President Trump.
While testifying before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Thursday, the ousted FBI Director also admitted that he leaked private memos regarding his conversations with Trump to “a good friend” at Columbia Law School named Professor Daniel Richman.
Comey stated that he directed his friend to share the memos with the media in hopes that it would result in the appointment of a special counsel to investigate the alleged Trump-Russia ties.
Commenting on the bombshells that Comey dropped during his testimony, Pirro said he was “so wily and so calculating,” and she is convinced that Comey sought to intentionally sabotage Trump with the leaked memos.
“It’s clearly about revenge. This is a setup. This is a predator who is setting up the president as opposed to saying, ‘You know, Mr. President, I know you’re new to government. I know that this isn’t something you’re comfortable with, but we’re really not supposed to be talking about this kinda [thing],” the judge told the hosts of “Fox & Friends” on Friday.
She added, “He is an operator. He is part of the Washington elite.”
As of Friday, Trump’s personal attorney Marc Kasowitz announced that he will be filing two complaints against Comey next week over the leak.
