Fox News host Judge Jeanine Pirro, a staunch supporter of President Trump, called former FBI Director James Comey "a predator" after he admitted to leaking memos he had written about his private meetings with the president.

"It's clearly about revenge. This is a setup. This is a predator who is setting up the president as opposed to saying, ‘You know Mr. President, I know you're new to government. I know that this isn't something you're comfortable with, but we're really not supposed to be talking about this kinda [thing]," Pirro told "Fox & Friends" on Friday.

Comey testified to the Senate Intelligence Committee on Thursday that he gave the memo to a friend of his who is a professor at Columbia Law School, directing him to share it with the press in the hopes that it would lead to a special counsel.

Trump's personal attorney Marc Kasowitz said Friday he plans to file two complaints against Comey next week over the leak.
