The Hill reports:
Fox News host Jeanine Pirro late Saturday said “it’s time” to put former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton in jail. “It’s time, folks. It’s time to shut it down, turn the tables, and lock her up. That’s what I said. I actually said it. Lock her up,” Pirro said during her show, “Justice with Jeanine.”
Pirro’s declaration comes after The Washington Post reported last week that the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and Clinton’s presidential campaign assisted funding for the research that lead to a dossier including unverified claims about President Trump.
More from ThinkProgress:
Pirro also called for the immediate firing of special counsel Robert Mueller and Rod Rosenstein, the Deputy Attorney General who appointed Mueller. She cited Mueller role as head of the FBI when the sale of Uranium One to the Russians was approved, as well as his friendship with former FBI Director James Comey.
“The special counsel’s office must be shut down,” Pirro said. According to Pirro it is “nothing more than a cabal of individuals relying on false evidence to impeach Donald Trump.” Significantly, Trump has close ties to Pirro and has used her show to deliver political messages in the past.

RELATED: In 2005 Pirro launched a short-lived US Senate challenge to Hillary, but dropped out months later when polls showed she would lose by a massive margin. The following year Pirro was the GOP nominee for New York Attorney General, losing to now-Gov. Andrew Cuomo by 20 points. During that campaign Pirro was investigated for wire-tapping her now ex-husband’s phone in an attempt to catch him committing adultery. Her husband ended up going to prison for conspiracy.
