Fox News’ Jeanine Pirro confirmed on Seb Gorka’s show Tuesday that Fox News suspended her and is keeping her from appearing on other rightwing outlets.

“They’re still saying you cannot do Bill O’Reilly, you cannot do Newsmax,” she complained.

“They suspended me,” she added. “I’m not going to get fired. You know I’m worried that that suspension was the basis to tee up for anything I do wrong, they’ll fire me.”

Gorka cut her off, saying “you just keep doing what you’re doing.”

Pirro was reportedly temporarily  suspended in March for questioning Rep. Ilhan Omar’s (D-MN) loyalty to the United States due to her Muslim faith. This is the first time Pirro confirmed the punishment.
