Pirro returns to Fox News after remarks on Muslim congresswoman

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK -

Former Westchester County District Attorney Jeanine Pirro is back on the job as a Fox News host, two weeks after she questioned a Muslim congresswoman's loyalties to the United States Constitution.

“Justice with Judge Jeanine" returned to Fox News Saturday.

The former judge and prosecutor thanked her viewers, but didn't directly discuss her apparent suspension.

Pirro asked on-air March 9 whether Rep. Ilhan Omar's traditional Muslim head covering indicated she followed Islamic religious law that Pirro called "antithetical to the U.S. Constitution."

Fox said at the time that it "strongly condemned" Pirro's comments.
