During a powerful opening statement Saturday night on her Fox News program, “Justice with Jeanine Pirro,” host Jeanine Pirro minced no words in going after the Democrats for their actions this past week regarding the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

She also went after the Establishment Republicans in her statement — and was clearly referring to, among others, Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.), for his late request of a short-term, “limited in scope” FBI investigation into the claims of Christine Blasey Ford against Judge Kavanaugh, dating back to the early 1980s, when they were both teenagers in high school.

Kavanaugh has already gone through six previous FBI investigations.

“Is it just a ‘he said/she said’ [scenario] — is it really that simple?” Jeanine Pirro said on her show.

“And why is this now in the hands of the FBI? Why? Because the Establishment Republicans have buckled, caved and bowed to the Democrats — or should I say demon rats. That’s what I said, demon rats … The spectacle we saw this week was one [of the] most pathetic, disheartening, saddest displays for which the nation has stood witness,” she also said.

She continued, “It was all for intents and purposes a crucifixion of a man. I’ve been a prosecutor and then a DA [district attorney, in Westchester County, New York; she served in that role from 1994 to 2005]. Sex crimes and crimes against women and children were my crusade. I assessed whether cases should go forward, whether the accused should be charged, convicted, and, if so as a judge, what the sentence should be.”

She also said, “So one sympathizes more than I when it comes to women who are the silent victims of crime. I created the first domestic violence unit in the nation, which was a Department of Justice pilot program.”

“Christine Blasey Ford is a lovely lady who is credible,” Pirro went on, “and I believe something happened to her. But she’s in over her head, and she is being used.”

“She waits 36 years — not telling her mother, a friend, high school counselor or anyone before now.”

“No matter how many brain comparisons she made, she couldn’t remember the fundamentals, whose house it was [where Ford has alleged sexual assault by Kavanaugh took place], where it was, when the party was, how she got to the house or how she got home.”

And “she waits 36 years — not telling her mother, a friend, high school counselor or anyone before now.”
