Joe DiGenova, the former U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia, appeared Friday on Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight” to say the FBI has undertaken a “brazen plot” to exonerate Hillary Clinton and frame President Donald Trump for impeachment.
Asked by host Tucker Carlson if he ever saw a probe stacked with prosecutors hostile to the person being investigated as seen from special counsel Robert Mueller, DiGenova went off on the FBI under former director James Comey.
“Let me say this,” the former prosecutor said. “Right now, what you have now unfolding inside the FBI and the Department of Justice under Obama is a brazen plot to do two things, to exonerate Hillary Clinton because of an animus toward Donald Trump and then if she lost, to frame the incoming president for either a criminal act or impeachment.”
DiGenova didn’t mince words in condemning what he sees as a conspiracy to “frame” the president.
“This is one of the most disgusting performances by the senior officials of the FBI and the Department of Justice and it demands that every one of these agents involved be fired,” he said. “And that the people who are still in the Justice Department be fired, including Mr. Ohr.”
DiGenova was referencing recently demoted associate deputy attorney general Bruce Ohr, who had undisclosed meetings with officials from Fusion GPS, the firm behind the fake Russian Dossier. Ohr’s wife was employed by Fusion GPS.
He said Trump should “impanel a federal grand jury to investigate the conduct of [FBI Deputy Director Andrew] McCabe and [senior counterintelligence agent Peter] Strzok and [senior FBI lawyer Lisa] Page and Comey and Ohr and everybody in the Obama Justice Department who even touched this because it’s very clear that they conspired to frame the incoming president of the United States.”
“It’s a frightening and disgusting prospect that FBI officials — senior FBI officials — would do this and those text messages are frightening,” DiGenova declared. “They’re just frightening.”
Comey and senior Justice Department officials in the Obama administration “threw the case” against Hillary Clinton over her private email server, he said.
“Comey sold his soul to the devil,” DiGenova insisted.
