Judge Jeanine Pirro said the Republican memo on purported government surveillance abuses reveals a conspiracy against President Donald Trump.
"Members of the highest echelon in our FBI and Department of Justice conspired to prevent an outsider from breaking the establishment's stranglehold on the American people," Judge Jeanine said in her opening statement Saturday night.
She explained that officials at the FBI and Justice Department used the unverified anti-Trump dossier to secure surveillance warrants on at least one member of the Trump campaign, according to the memo.
"They needed a reason to spy, so they made one up," Judge Jeanine said. "They swore to facts they knew were lies to get what they wanted, in order to surveil a candidate they could not imagine being president. A cabal of arrogant, condescending employees of our government -- whose salaries we pay -- thought that we didn't count."
