(National Sentinel) Criminal Politicization: Former U.S. district attorney Joe diGenova blasted fired FBI Director James Comey Monday night during an appearance on Fox News‘ Sean Hannity program, saying he has single-handedly “destroyed” the agency he once led.
What’s more, diGenova said, Comey ought to be charged criminally for lying to Congress and for purposely leaking classified memos to the press.
“America’s dirty cop has destroyed the integrity, the reputation and the legitimacy of the Federal Bureau of Investigation single-handedly by his outrageous performance last night on ABC,” the former prosecutor said, in reference to an appearance Comey made Sunday evening on the network, during which time he leveled personal criticism at President Donald J. Trump.
“It is inconceivable to me that anyone can now think that he performed a legitimate law enforcement function during the investigation of Hillary Clinton,” diGenova continued. And it is quite obvious that the dossier was a fake document.
“That it was absolutely purposely used illegitimately by senior officials at the FBI and the Department of Justice. Mr. Comey lied repeatedly last night. And regrettably, he lied to the FISA Court,” he added.
“He encouraged others to lie to the FISA Court. And regrettably, I think Mr. Comey has to be charged with crimes for falsely presenting information to a FISA Court and for apparently lying regularly to Congress,” he said.
