Here’s why Joe DiGenova thinks John Brennan needs to ‘get himself a good lawyer’ … and fast

Joe DiGenova, the former U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia, suggested John Brennan “get himself a good lawyer,” saying the former head of the CIA is “going to be in front of a grand jury shortly.”

Appearing on Fox News Channel’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” Digenova charged that Hillary Clinton “was illegally exonerated” in the private email server probe and that “there was a substantial effort to frame” President Donald Trump.

“We know that Hillary Clinton was illegally exonerated. We knew that a year ago,” the former prosecutor said when asked to recap special counsel Robert Mueller’s 1-year probe of Russian collusion.

“We know that there was a substantial effort to frame the current president of the United States with crimes by infiltrating his campaign and then his administration with spies that the FBI had set upon them.

“We have learned that the crimes were committed by the FBI, senior members of the Department of Justice, John Brennan, Mr. [James] Clapper, Mr. [James] Comey and others associated with the Democratic Party,” he continued. “And Donald Trump and his associates committed no crimes.”

If that wasn’t damning enough, DiGenova then laid out an outrageous claim.

“Categorically and unequivocally, it has been proved that the FBI, in violation of all guidelines, all legislation — and I believe they committed crimes in doing so — purposely sent people into the Trump campaign to plant false information, then force that information to be forwarded back to CIA, and then funneled to the FBI, to be used as false information in FISA applications,” he said.

“Everybody involved in that process, who knowingly participated, committed a crime,” DiGenova concluded.

He explained to Carlson that “criminal referrals have already been made.”

“And I suggest that Mr. Brennan, who loves to make comments about the process, get himself a good lawyer not a good writer,” DiGenova said.

“Yes, NBC News’ consultant, the former Director of the Central Intelligence Agency, the most partisan hack leader of the CIA in history needs a very, very good lawyer.”

DiGenova added, “He’s going to be in front of a grand jury shortly.”

Brennan became a focal point this week when former NSA Director Mike Rogers and former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper contradicted his claim that  the unverified Trump dossier paid for by Hillary Clinton’s campaign had no influence on allegations of Russian interference in the 2016 election.

As noted by Mollie Hemingway, the senior editor for The Federalist, Brennan has “a history” of not being honest.
