Fox News host Judge Jeanine Pirro has launched a scathing, on-air indictment of President Barack Obama, calling for his impeachment from office.
On Saturday night’s broadcast of “Justice with Judge Jeanine,” Pirro uncorked a blistering verbal assault on Obama in connection with his handling of the fatal onslaught of the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya, on Sept. 11, 2012, and the subsequent cover-up.
“Mr. President, it’s called an abrogation of duty,” Pirro said. “You have not taken your oath to honestly and faithfully execute the duties of your office. As commander in chief, you have NOT protected us. This dereliction of duty as commander in chief demands your impeachment.”
Watch a 90-second clip of Judge Jeanine Pirro calling for Obama’s impeachment:
“Your cover-up was for political advantage,” she continued. “The promotion thereafter of virtually everyone involved in your conspiracy and the stonewalling of Congress, the denying of access to key witnesses all add up to a classic cover-up.”
“And what’s that? You were elected?” Pirro rhetorically asked Obama as she placed her hand behind her ear.
“There is no contract with someone who thinks that the American people are nothing more than pawns in an all-consuming power play to change who we are as a nation.”
She concluded by calling Obama an arrogant deceiver.
“You swore to protect and defend the American people, but instead you left Americans to die, not lifting a finger to help them. Mr. President, none of us want to believe that our president will let Americans die, but the arrogance, the failure to act, the lies, the cover-up make it clear that you, Mr. President, have defrauded the American people.
“You, Mr. President, have violated your constitutional oath. You have not faithfully executed your duties in the office of the president.”

WND has been reporting on members of Congress who have discussed impeachment. The list now includes:

Kerry Bentivolio, R-Mich.; Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas; Sen. James Inhofe, R-Okla.; Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah; Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C.; Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn.; Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas; Rep. Trey Radel, R-Fla.; and Rep. Ted Yoho, R-Fla.
Just last week, WND reported how Pirro also lashed into the U.S. Senate majority leader, whom she labeled “Dirty Harry” Reid.
Judge Jeanine asserted the federal Bureau of Land Management’s surge of interest in land used by Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy to graze his cattle has more to do with dollars and power projects than any interest in protecting a tortoise that also lives on the land.
In a special commentary on her program, she said Reid, a Nevada Democrat, may have had an ulterior motive for the attempted land grab from Bundy: energy projects.
Watch Jeanine Pirro take on “Dirty Harry” Reid:
She said if a solar energy project is expected to impact thousands of acres of desert land in the state, federal rules would require a mitigation zone, where animals that may be protected or endangered could be moved from the project site.
As WND reported, the BLM has mentioned Bundy’s cattle and the grazing land he uses in connection with solar power projects.
Pirro said “Dirty Harry” had been watching federal land being transferred and used for shopping malls and other projects for years until the “armed military type agents came in like stormtroopers.”
“You need snipers to move cows, Harry? Really?” she asked.
Pirro explained a solar project proposed on nearby land by a Chinese company with links to Reid would require that mitigation area.
“The BLM actually posted documents designating the mitigation area so that the solar power project can move forward,” she reported. “Unfortunately, that designated mitigation area has cattle on it.
“Harry, in my other life, I did investigations. I presented cases to grand juries,” she said. “Oh, to be a prosecutor again. Oh, to present this to a grand jury. Oh, to put ‘Dirty Harry’ under oath on the witness stand,” she continued.
