As part of the LeMieux Center for Public Policy’s speaker series, former judge and prosecutor Jeanine Pirro channeled her passion for politics and protecting vulnerable people in her remarks at Palm Beach Atlantic University.
Pirro hosts the highly-rated primetime weekend show “Justice with Judge Jeanine” on the Fox News Channel. She is also a legal commentator and author of four books. She is a champion of rights for abused women and children, inspired by her time as a former district attorney and judge in Westchester County, New York. Prior to a lively talk in the DeSantis Family Chapel, journalism professor Israel Balderas interviewed Pirro in a Facebook Live for The Beacon in the Warren Library. During the presentation, “America Today: The Courts, The Media and Violence in Society”, Pirro, a longtime friend and outspoken supporter of former President Donald Trump, alluded to special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen testifying before Congress earlier in the day. She then shifted her focus to the rising popularity of socialism.
