The following is another piece of information on the Donald Trump presidential run. Make sure you keep yourself updated!:


He’s not Judge Jeanine’s “hero” anymore.

When FBI Director James Comey announced in July that he would not recommend prosecuting Hillary Clinton for running her official communication through a private email server while she was secretary of state, even some of his biggest fans were surprised.

But when the FBI released its report last week on the investigation that led to Comey’s decision, that surprise turned to outrage for one of Comey’s best known supporters – and even outright disgust.

Jeanine Pirro, the former prosecutor, judge and current Fox News personality, vented out loud on the “Hannity” program Thursday, with a personal attack on the FBI director that should have had ears ringing inside the Beltway and beyond.

“Jim is a friend of mine – or was when I was a DA,” Pirro told host Sean Hannity. “I have never been more disgusted with someone who is a former prosecutor – the way he has covered this up and gone to such great lengths to protect the woman,” referring to the Democrat nominee.

Pirro was particularly incensed that the FBI released the report on the Friday before a holiday weekend – a standard Washington political practice meant to keep bad news out of the public eye as much as possible.

In a memo to FBI employees this week, Comey claimed he didn’t pick the timing of the report’s release – just that the bureau released it to the public as soon as it was ready.

“I almost ordered the material held until Tuesday because I knew we would take all kinds of grief for releasing it before a holiday weekend,” Comey wrote. “But my judgment was that we had promised transparency and it would be game-playing to withhold it from the public just to avoid folks saying stuff about us. We don’t play games. So we released it Friday.”

There can’t be many people who believe that outside or inside FBI headquarters. Of all the days in the year the report could have been released, it just happened to be late on the Friday of the first available holiday weekend, after much of official Washington and those who cover it had packed up to leave town?

Pirro wasn’t buying it.

“For Jim to say, ‘you know what? We wanted to get it out as soon as possible…’

“Jim, that is hogwash and you know it.”

The outburst marked the bottom of a steadily worsening opinion Pirro has been broadcasting about Comey since the FBI’s investigation began well over a year ago.

On an episode of her show “Justice With Judge Jeanine” back in December, Pirro devoted seven minutes of the program to assuring her viewers that Comey could be trusted.

“I know Jim Comey. I worked with him when he was the United States attorney for the southern district of New York,” Pirro said, praising Comey as a “hero” for his commitment to law and order even in the face of a grotesquely politicized Justice Department under Barack Obama.

“He is not only brilliant, he is honest, hardworking and he comes from a long line of law enforcement. Politics plays no role in his decisions. He’s in it for all the right reasons.”

After Comey’s announcement in July, Pirro was critical, but more measured.

“Jim, you’re wrong. I respect you but you’re wrong,” she said.

On Thursday, with the revelations of what the FBI report actually contained — at least those elements that weren’t blacked out — even that grudging acknowledgement was gone.

“I’ve lost all respect for the man. I have,” Pirro said. “He may be the head of the FBI, but shame on him for what he’s done.”

From “hero,” to “former friend” to “disgusted” in nine months.

It’s a good bet they won’t be exchanging Christmas cards this year.

Just remember, don’t trust the media’s line and do not permit them to demoralize you. Make America Great Again!
