JEA­NINE PIRRO TAKES ON ANTI-TRUMP CON­SPIR­ACY

The Washington Times Daily - - POLITICS -

Fox News host Judge Jea­nine Pirro has a new book ar­riv­ing soon, and the ti­tle ex­plains all: “Liars, Leak­ers, and Lib­er­als: The Case against the Anti-Trump Con­spir­acy.”

Judge Pirro is on a per­sonal mis­sion to ex­pose forces that have been at work against Pres­i­dent Trump since he took of­fice — from ru­mors of a shadow govern­ment or “deep state” to false press nar­ra­tives and po­lit­i­cal dis­trac­tions.

“There is a deep state in this coun­try that is far deeper than any­one ever thought. It took Don­ald Trump to bring out the fact that some in the govern­ment are cre­at­ing their own rules and mech­a­nisms to main­tain power and con­trol, and pre­serve an ide­ol­ogy that Amer­i­cans may not buy into. Trump in­stinc­tively knew a deep state was there,” Judge Pirro tells In­side the Belt­way, not­ing that this shadow govern­ment was “al­ready in mo­tion” be­fore Mr. Trump even took of­fice.

Oth­ers have also won­dered about it. On Mr. Trump’s in­au­gu­ra­tion day, GQ mag­a­zine pub­lished a sug­ges­tion that “Barack Obama was pre­par­ing for his third term.” Ju­di­cial Watch also warned that a “soft coup” was un­der­way. And four months ago, a Mon­mouth Uni­ver­sity poll re­vealed that 74 per­cent of Amer­i­cans said the prover­bial deep state, in­deed, ex­ists.

“Trump was elected be­cause Amer­i­cans knew some­thing was go­ing on,” says Judge Pirro. “The deep state is deep rooted, and yes, it will be hard to un­root. This is a deep state that has its own rules, and is ar­ro­gant, de­ter­mined to pro­tect it­self. The truth is that Trump is a mas­ter com­mu­ni­ca­tor, a man who un­der­stood the play­ing field, and took some risks. He took on the news me­dia. Any politi­cian would have said, ‘What, are you out of your mind?’ Yet now, Trump has cre­ated his own mech­a­nism to com­mu­ni­cate with the pub­lic. That took for­ti­tude and ge­nius. And my money says he comes out on top. Trump is a force of na­ture. He will per­se­vere, and he will fight the good fight.”

Judge Pirro has known Mr. Trump for 25 years, and says her new book — to be pub­lished by Cen­ter Street on Tues­day — reviews the pres­i­dent’s ac­com­plish­ments.

“I cover what he has done for the Amer­i­can peo­ple, de­spite these ef­forts to stop him. I tell peo­ple to look at their pay­checks, look at their tax re­turns. Trump is re­ally the tip of the spear of the pop­ulist move­ment,” says Judge Pirro, who of­fers no rec­om­men­da­tions to Mr. Trump.

“He lis­tens to a lot of peo­ple. He doesn’t need my ad­vice,” she ob­serves.

But Judge Pirro does have a word for for­mer Sec­re­tary of State Hil­lary Clin­ton, who in 1998 fret­ted that a “vast right-wing con­spir­acy” was in­tent on dis­man­tling the work of then-Pres­i­dent Bill Clin­ton.

“Hil­lary’s vast right-wing con­spir­acy was all in her mind. She ought to take a close look at the dif­fer­ence be­tween her delu­sional con­spir­acy and what the left is do­ing with Trump to­day. They are work­ing to pre­vent the na­tion from car­ry­ing out the wishes of the Found­ing Fa­thers,” Judge Pirro says. “This is a real con­spir­acy. We have con­crete facts that in­di­cate a con­spir­acy, I have been a judge for 30 years. I’ve run for of­fice. I get this stuff. I know a con­spir­acy when I see one.”
