Fox News contributor Jeanine Pirro warned on Friday that the politics in Washington D.C. has changed with regard to the investigation into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election. Commenting on the designation of former FBI Director Robert Mueller as special counsel in the investigation, Pirro said on "Fox and Friends" that leftists have sought to delegitimize President Trump ever since Election Day in November.
Trump, Pirro advised, should focus on the political objectives for which his supporters elected him. She suggested that Trump should not make further public statements about the investigation because of the risk that they may cause legal problems for him. "He has got to understand he is in treacherous waters now. You're talking about every step as potentially being evidence to impeach him in some way," she said.
Pirro the allegations and full-scale media attention to the supposed Russia connection a "full-scale assault on the president and the institution of the presidency."
While speaking to citizens for her weekly "Street Justice" show, Pirro said she has noticed that many people she speaks to appeared to be "fixated" on anti-Trump stories concerning his ties to Russia. "People are just repeating what they're hearing. It's like propaganda," she said, pointing out Time magazine's latest cover in which an artist blended the White House with the Kremlin.
