(May 10, 2017) — During an interview with Steve Malzberg of Newsmax TV, longtime political operative Roger Stone said he believes that President Donald Trump should nominate Fox News host and former prosecutor and judge Jeanine Pirro as the next FBI Director in the wake of Trump’s dismissal of James Comey on Tuesday.

Pirro is host of the Saturday night program “Justice with Judge Jeanine.”

Stone made his opinion on the matter known at the 11:00-minute mark of the 14 1/2-minute segment with Malzberg.  Although not the main topic of the conversation, Stone injected a new name into a list of those already reported by some outlets to include current and former FBI division leaders, Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke, former NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly, and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, among others.

Stone described Pirro as a “a woman of enormous legal savvy, a hard-nosed, by-the-book law enforcement person.”

Earlier on Wednesday, Pirro announced on Twitter that she had secured an interview to be aired on her program this Saturday at 9:00 p.m. EDT, which became a topic of conversation on The Post & Email’s Facebook page.

Stone stressed to Malzberg that while he speaks with Trump “from time to time,” any conversations he has with him are considered confidential and that “nobody tells Donald Trump what to do.”

Earlier in the interview, Stone said that he has received letters from both the U.S House and Senate Intelligence Committees, beginning a discourse between his legal team and theirs as to if and when he might appear to testify regarding any knowledge he may have on alleging ties between former Trump campaign aides and the Russian government.

Having been accused publicly of Russia involvement, Stone said he is eager to testify in the same manner to put to rest accusations which have been leveled at him by members of Congress.

Stone has been an advisor to a number of Republican presidential candidates and presidents, most notably, Richard M. Nixon.  An informal advisor to Trump early on in his campaign, Stone departed that role later in 2015, choosing instead to advocate for Trump’s presidency publicly.

Stone is the author of several books, a radio host and political commentator.

Prior to press time, The Post & Email posted a link to the Stone/Malzberg interview on Pirro’s Facebook page with a request for comment and our contact information, after which we received a message that the page manager would review our submission.

  1. Judge Jeanine Pirro has my vote – HANDS DOWN! She’d be a valuable to addition to President Trump’s cabinet in any position, but as Director of the FBI, she has everything it takes to make her special.

  2. Consider the following to head the FBI:

    Former prosecutor and judge Jeanine Pirro (works for me);
    Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke (some claim he doesn’t know DC — is that a bad thing?);
    Former Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio (probably too old, but would be great while he lasts);
    Former NY City mayor and prosecutor Rudy Guiliani (good, but claims not to be interested);
    Former prosecutor and House member Trey Gowdy (botched the Benghazi investigation);
    Former US attorney Joe DiGenova (would love to get Hillary on Benghazi and email-gate);
    Former Department of Justice attorney J. Christian Adams (strong on borders and voter fraud).
    Former NYPD Commissioner Raymond Kelly (competent, but may be too anti gun rights);
    New Jersey Governor Chris Christie (no, no and no — anti gun rights among other things).
