Former federal prosecutor Joe diGenova, long an advocate for justice to be done over the Obama-era “Spygate” scandal aimed at deposing POTUS Donald Trump said Tuesday night that for the “first time” he actually believes at least some of the co-conspirators will get some jail time.
Specifically, diGenova, who served as a federal prosecutor in the D.C. district, said that fired FBI Director James Comey and former CIA Director John Brennan should be lawyering up big time.
“This is very serious business,” he told Fox News host Laura Ingraham.
“For the first time, I believe some of these guys are going to prison,” he continued.
“Let me tell you something, [Justice Department Inspector General Michael] Horowitz has already concluded that the final three FISAs were completely illegal,” diGenova continued. “He’s now on the brink of finding that the first FISA was completely illegal.
“[U.S. Attorney John] Durham has already used a grand jury in Connecticut. They’ve already gotten documents. He’s already talked to the intel people,” diGenova said.
Ingraham asked how long Durham, a corruption specialist, has been on the case.
“Durham’s been working for a couple months. The bottom line is this. This is now – big time. This is where Brennan needs five lawyers. Comey needs five lawyers,” diGenova added.
Earlier this week, Attorney General William Barr said that Durham had been appointed to look into potential abuses of the law regarding Spygate — to include, of course, the reportedly fraudulent circumstances surrounding the FISA warrants used to spy on 2016 Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.
Fox News followed up that report by noting that Durham was actually appointed several weeks ago by Barr, giving him a giant head start on the deep state snakes now trying to throw each other under the bus and slither away unscathed.
It will be interesting to see which one of the scoundrels sells out former President Obama as the ringleader first.
