(National Sentinel) Law of the Swamp: A former U.S. attorney believes that then-FBI Director James Comey intentionally allowed Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton off the hook during last year’s criminal investigation into her mishandling of classified emails.
Further, Joe diGenova told Fox News‘ Tucker Carlson on Friday, the ongoing probe by special counsel Robert Mueller into alleged “collusion” between President Donald J. Trump’s campaign and the Russian government is putting the nation into a “constitutional crisis.”
“What you have now unfolding inside the FBI and Department of Justice under [former President] Obama was a brazen plot to do two things: To exonerate Hillary Clinton because of an animus for Donald Trump, and then if she lost to frame the incoming president for either a criminal act or impeachment,” diGenova said.
“This is one of the most disgusting performances by the senior officials at the FBI and the Department of Justice that every one of these agents should be fired and the people who are still in the Justice Department be fired including Mr. Ohr and they impanel a federal grand jury to investigate the conduct of [FBI Deputy Director Andrew] McCabe and [FBI agent Peter] Strzok and [FBI lawyer Lisa] Page and [former FBI Director James] Comey and [DoJ official Bruce] Ohr and everybody in the Obama Justice Department that even touched this,” he added.
“It’s very clear that they conspired to frame the incoming president of the United States,” he continued.
“It’s a frightening and disgusting prospect that FBI officials, senior FBI officials would do this. And those text messages are frightening. They’re just frightening.”
Carlson asked diGenova if, when he was a federal prosecutor, he had ever “stacked” his team with people hostile to the person under investigation.
“No,” he said.
“James Comey threw the case against Hillary Clinton in conjunction with senior FBI officials and Justice Department officials in the Obama administration at the time,” diGenova went on, adding that Comey’s seeming exoneration of Clinton before even interviewing her last year is something that is “never done.”
“Comey sold his soul to the devil,” said the former U.S. attorney, noting that his office receives phone calls regularly from currently-serving FBI agents who say they “cannot abide” by what continues to go on as it relates to the Trump administration.
He added that many agents are privately questioning why McCabe continues to serve in his position, despite being mentioned in text messages exchanged between Strzok and Page which implicate all of them in a nefarious plot against Trump.
“I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in Andy’s office — that there’s no way he [Trump] gets elected — but I’m afraid we can’t take that risk,” Strzok texted on Aug. 15, 2016.
“It’s like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you’re 40.”
Some lawmakers are convinced that “Andy” refers to McCabe, and want to know more from him about his communications with Page and Strzok.
“This is just one of several new revelations that have cast doubt on the FBI’s integrity and objectivity,” Fox News reported.
“This is a constitutional crisis,” diGenova told Carlson, “and Congress better stay on it until they get all the answers, and then there needs to be a grand jury.”
