Appearing before the hearing on“Fox & Friends”with hosts Steve Doocy, Ainsley Earhardt and Pete Hegseth, Pirro said that the “bottom line” is that Yovanovitch “should be a big girl because the president can let go of anyone that he wants to.”
“Presidents historically replace all the ambassadors. I mean, whether it’sObamaorClintonorBush, this is what they do. And some of the ambassadors they replace two or three times during the course of the administration,” she added.
“So she obviously was not very good, I must be honest with you, on foreign policy,” Pirro said. “I don’t know what her bona fides are that she thinks she’s entitled to a job. No one is. Just serve at the pleasure of the president. Period.”
Pirro said that the Democrats’ case for the probe is based on no substantial criminal evidence, and that “when you’re dealing with foreign relations, you have the right to expect something in return to condition the money.”
“They’re not entitled to our money,” she told the “Friends” hosts, but “there’s nothing wrong with a retroactive request.”
“You know why they’re offquid pro quo? It doesn’t poll well,” Pirro said. “Plus, it’sJoe Bidenthat did the quid pro quo. Let’s call it what it is.”
“Look, if you’re a trial attorney, you look at these hearings and you say to yourself, ‘Are they kidding?’ Are these people really thinking that the American people are that stupid?” she exclaimed. “It’s not even hearsay. It’s double and triple hearsay by people who have a hostile attitude toward the president. They’re not going to admit it.”
