OPED: Judge Jeanine: Too Many Are Above The Law In America

Judge Jeanine Pirro said she has some serious questions about the Clintons' and Obamas' relationship Russia.

"I don't know what the problem is. But I'm telling you there is one," the judge warned on "Justice" Saturday.

"If you didn't believe the deep state existed after watching Attorney General Jeff Sessions testify before Congress this week, you should now."

Sessions was asked about Republican lawmakers' request for a second special counsel investigating a controversial uranium deal approved by the Obama administration while Hillary Clinton was secretary of state. The deal allegedly benefited major donors to the Clinton Foundation.

"What's the problem? Why isn't this in front of a grand jury? Why no special counsel? Why is it so difficult for Jeff Sessions to answer a straight question? Why does it appear he's not even clear on whether and what he's recused from?" Judge Pirro asked.

Sessions said he would appoint a special counsel to investigate the uranium deal if he had more evidence to do so.

"Hillary is from the school of lie, deny, and delay. She and the Obama administration have thwarted Congress at every turn," Pirro said. "Investigations are drawn out for so long that America's collective memory fades to the point where no one really cares anymore, which is just what the plan was in the first place."

"To those who say, 'Another special counsel serves no purpose. This must stop,' I say baloney. I say law and order and truth and justice are the very foundations of this republic," Judge Pirro stated.

"I am tired of the powerful and Clintons being above the law."
