Fox News host Jeanine Pirro teased the release of her new book this week.
“Crimes Against America: The Left’s Takedown of Our Republic,” will be released later this month by Winning Team Publishing, a company co-founded by Donald Trump’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr.
“Can’t wait to see all of you at these book signings! I’ll be at @yaf in Santa Barbara, California, and the @NixonLibrary in Yorba Lida, California on June 1st, I’ll be at @TPUSA in Phoenix, Arizona on June 2nd, and I’ll be at Collectors Firearms in Houston, Texas on June 3rd!” Pirro tweeted.

Speaking with the Washington Times, Pirro spoke about how her book details grave concerns about the Supreme Court’s inability to identify who leaked the Roe v. Wade draft opinion last year, which she said led to a loss in public confidence in the institution.
“A lack of accountability has created this sense in America of a corrupt Department of Justice and FBI, and the sad part about that is that people in America want to believe everything is on the up and up and that Lady Justice is blind, but Lady Justice is not blind,” Pirro said.
“The Supreme Court has essentially allowed itself to become a political football by not stepping in and making sure whoever leaked it — whether it is a clerk, a secretary, an assistant or a Supreme Court justice — that not identifying the person has been a self-imposed injury on the court,” Pirro said.
Pirro also briefly spoke about Special Counsel John Durham’s final report, which was released earlier this month.
“The most stunning part for me is the fact that [2016 Democratic presidential nominee] Hillary Clinton, according to the Durham report, was the one who came up with the idea of a Russian collusion hoax,” Pirro said.
She said the only way to restore public confidence is to restructure the departments from the top.
“No one is fired. No one is suspended,” she said.
Durham found the FBI used “uncorroborated intelligence” when it launched its investigation into Trump before the 2016 presidential election and that agents failed repeatedly to maintain “strict fidelity to the law” throughout the probe.
The Daily Caller noted crucial findings in the report about Hillary Clinton:
The report noted that the FBI received intelligence that Hillary Clinton’s campaign approved “a proposal from one of her foreign policy advisors to vilify Donald Trump by stirring up a scandal claiming interference by Russian security services,” specifically one that involved “tying him to Putin and the Russians’ hacking of the Democratic National Committee” to distract the public from her email scandals. It notes that President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, Attorney General Loretta Lynch, and FBI Director James Comey were personally briefed on Clinton’s scheme, known as the “Clinton Plan” in the report, by CIA Director John Brennan, who recorded mentioning the plan in his handwritten notes.
The “Clinton Plan” was obtained by the FBI while it was relying on the “Steele Dossier,” a discredited report of lurid allegations of Trump’s personal sexual activity, which the FBI knew was being funded and promoted by the Clinton campaign, according to the report. Durham quotes information from a meeting between the Dossier’s author, former British intelligence agent Christopher Steele, and FBI agents, as well as texts between FBI officials, to demonstrate that the agents knew the evidence was connected to Clinton.
Alabama GOP Sen. Tommy Tuberville declared the alleged targeting of Trump gives many Americans reason to question future elections and government agencies and said people need to go to jail.
“The long-awaited Durham Report confirmed what the American people already know; that individuals at the highest levels of government attempted to overthrow democracy when they illegally weaponized the federal government against Donald J. Trump,” House Republican Conference Chairwoman Elise Stefanik said.
House Speaker Kevin McCarthy said: “They took the entire country through this, impeachment, everything else when we knew the FBI never should have done this from the very beginning.”
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Turner said: “The report confirms that FBI personnel repeatedly disregarded critical protections established to protect the American people from unlawful surveillance. Such actions should never have occurred, and it is essential that Congress codifies clear guardrails that prevent future FBI abuses and restores the public’s trust in our law enforcement institutions.”
