Joe DiGenova: Frustrated President May Fire 'Clowns' Sessions and Rosenstein
Attorney Joe diGenova predicted that both Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and Attorney General Jeff Sessions' days are numbered at the Department of Justice during a telephone interview with Newsmax's Howie Carr Wednesday. DiGenova's claim came after the New York Times published a report titled "Code Name Crossfire Hurricane: The Secret Origins of the Trump Investigation". The report has been interpreted by many as an attempt by sources within the "Deep State" to cushion the blow of the imminent DOJ inspector general report, which is expected to be explosive.
In March, President Trump considered adding diGenova and his wife Victoria Toensing to his legal team, but conflicts of interest reportedly prevented him from hiring them. The attorney is still in contact with Trump, and told Carr that "the president has had it up to his scuppers with these clowns."
Buried deep within the NYT report is the bombshell revelation that Obama's FBI spied on the Trump campaign with covert "informants" (read "spies," or "moles") and electronic surveillance during the 2016 election. Also, contrary to the NYT's previous reporting, the article revealed that the spying did not begin with either Carter Page's interactions with Russians or George Papadopoulos's drunken conversation with Australian ambassador Alexander Downer in London. The spying began before that.
"Let me just tell you something," diGenova began. "My whole body just absolutely convulses when I listen to the idiots on national television who dare to suggest that those of us who believe that there was a brazen plot to exonerate Hillary Clinton illegally, and then if she lost to frame Donald Trump, to suggest that we are -- quote -- conspiracy theorists. I gladly say that I am. The only difference is I have evidence to substantiate the conspiracy."
He added: "If I were still a U.S. attorney, I would have an indictment of about nine different people in three days on the facts that are readily available on the public record."
DiGenova told Carr that Brennan, Comey, and Clapper, as well as six other people in the hierarchy of DOJ and FBI in the Obama administration, need to lawyer up. He predicted at the end of the interview that Brennan would have to face a grand jury. "Whether or not he ever goes to prison, I don't know, but this is for certain -- he should," DiGenova said, calling Obama's spy chief "the worst of the bunch" and "an evil man."
"This notion in the NYT that they had some serious evidence against Trump!" diGenova scoffed. "What they're doing now is they are trying to protect the informant, the spy, the agent provocateur ... who was planting false evidence with two people, Carter Page and George Papadopoulos, so that they would repeat it and then the FBI could pretend to pick it up and then use it to get FISA warrants," he explained.
