Former federal prosecutor Joe diGenova says based on the evidence he’s seen and dots he’s connected, the U.S. Department of Justice and the FBI conspired to “frame” Donald Trump with a nonexistent Russian scandal.
DiGenova, who’s now in private practice, told The Daily Caller News Foundation that he believes the Trump-Russia investigation was part of an effort to hide a “brazen plot to exonerate Hillary Clinton.”
Zero Hedge transcribed diGenova’s explanation:
The FBI used to spy on Russians. This time they spied on us. What this story is about — a brazen plot to exonerate Hillary Clinton from a clear violation of the law with regard to the way she handled classified information with her classified server. Absolutely a crime, absolutely a felony. It’s about finding out why — as the Inspector General is doing at the department of justice — why Comey and the senior DOJ officials conducted a fake criminal investigation of Hillary Clinton. Followed none of the regular rules, gave her every break in the book, immunized all kinds of people, allowed the destruction of evidence, no grand jury, no subpoenas, no search warrant. That’s not an investigation, that’s a Potemkin village. It’s a farce.
DiGenova told The Daily Caller News Foundation that the stakes in finding out the truth couldn’t be any higher:
People who were senior career civil servants violated the law, perhaps committed crimes, and covered up crimes by a presidential candidate — but more than that, they tried to frame an incoming president with a false Russian conspiracy that never existed, and they knew it, and they plotted to ruin him as a candidate and then destroy him as a president. That’s why this is important. That’s why connecting the dots is important.
He said the one thing that “we’re going to discover [is] that the Attorney General, Loretta Lynch, her deputy Sally Yates, the head of the national security division John Carlin, Bruce Ohr and other senior DOJ officials, and regrettably, [line] attorneys” lied because they’d get away with the “farce” because she’d win the election.
The Daily Caller News Foundation reported that DiGenova claims to have a released but unreported FISA court opinion:
In this highly detailed video interview, he holds up an unreported April 2017 99-page FISA court opinion that “describes systematic and on-going violations of the law [by the FBI and their contractors using unauthorized disclosures of raw intelligence on Americans]. This is stunning stuff.”
He explained the outgoing head of the National Security Agency, Adm. Mike Rogers, was a hero in this story for tipping off the Trump campaign that they were being spied on. The Trump transition team temporarily moved from Trump Tower as a result.
DiGenova concluded that it’s important for Rep. Devin Nunes, the Republican in charge of the House Intelligence Committee, to finish the committee’s work.
