Fox News host Jesse Watters called House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's husband Paul's DUI trial "rigged" and corrupted by "deck-stacking" after a last-minute judge swap Tuesday on "Jesse Watters Primetime."

The presiding judge stepped down the night before Wednesday's trial and was replaced by Judge Monique Langhorne, who Watters said is a registered Democrat. 

Her connections prompted Watters to say, "This is totally deck-stacking if I've ever seen it."

"How can we expect a fair trial here when the judge and the prosecutors are all politically on the same side as the defendant, [and] financially connected? There's a family connection we've told you about, too. Can you say rigged?"

Watters reported that Langhorne previously worked for the Napa County District Attorney's Office. 

The assistant district attorney slated to prosecute the case donated to Langhorne's campaign for the judge's office, as has District Attorney Allison Haley, he said.
