Fox News' Judge Jeanine Pirro on Saturday took on the recent news that Hillary Clinton will participate in a presidential election recount in up to three key states.

Green Party candidate Jill Stein is challenging the results in Wisconsin and reportedly plans to do the same in Michigan and Pennsylvania.

"This after the presidential election was called for Donald Trump. This after Democrats were 'horrified' when then-candidate Donald Trump, in his last debate with Clinton, wouldn't commit to accepting the election results, simply saying he would look at it, at the time, and keep us all in suspense," Pirro said during her opening statement on "Justice With Judge Jeanine."

As Pirro pointed out, Clinton "doubled down" on her criticism of Trump's refusal to accept the election results, saying that this is "not the way our democracy works."

"I, for one, am appalled that someone who is the nominee of one of our two major parties would take that kind of position," Clinton said during the campaign. "That is a direct threat to our democracy."

Pirro turned Clinton's own words against her, asking if she is willing to do what she called on the country to do in her Nov. 9 concession speech.

"Now that Donald Trump is looking to help you heal, looking to help heal the nation, would it be fair to say, to use your own words, it's time to give Donald Trump his chance to lead?" Pirro said.
