Fox News host Jeanine Pirro, popularly known as Judge Jeanine for her past as a judge in New York, gave a deeply disturbing monologue on her Sunday show that found her calling for the incarceration of government officials without legitimate legal cause.

“There is a cleansing needed in our FBI and our Department of Justice,” she said. “It needs to be cleansed of individuals who should not just be fired, but who need to be taken out in handcuffs.”

Pirro appears to be calling for a "cleansing" of independent departments for not bending to the will of President Donald Trump. She ticks off a list of individuals who just happen to be insufficiently authoritarian for her taste.

"The stench coming out of the DOJ and FBI is like that of a third-world country where money and boys and clubs decide elections," Pirro said.

This claim is nonsensical, since the host believes a conspiracy existed to elect Hillary Clinton, who obviously lost the 2016 election.

Pirro has been invited to the White House and has spoken with Trump. The New York Times reports the president walked out on her after be became "tired of Ms. Pirro's screed."

Watch the bizarre monologue below.
