DiGenova: ‘Accountable government’ coming as ‘battle royale’ has broken out between AG Barr, deep state

By Jon Dougherty

In an interview over the Memorial Day weekend, former federal prosecutor Joe diGenova told a D.C. radio station that a “battle royale” is taking place within the Justice Department between Attorney General William Barr and FBI Director Christopher Wray, as well as other elements of the intelligence community.

At issue, said diGenova, are efforts by Barr and the Trump administration to restore “accountable government” to federal law enforcement and intelligence agencies who have long been free to operate virtually independently of any real congressional and Executive Branch oversight — to the point where they have become excessively corrupt.

DiGenova, who is still a practicing attorney with a law firm in D.C., said that Barr has met resistance from Wray and others within the Justice Department as he has attempted, on instructions from POTUS Donald Trump, to get to the bottom of the Spygate scandal and coup attempt that originated in the Obama administration.

“Remember what this is,” diGenova said. “This is the president of the United States asking his new attorney general with full power to find out what went on. The FBI director is saying, ‘No, you’re not going to be able to find out all that’s going on.

“So, that happened over a period of time” — after POTUS Trump empowered Barr to look into the origins of Spygate, diGenova continued. “You know, Bill Barr is a very serious lawyer,” diGenova said, noting that he is not prone to outbursts or participating in shouting matches. “He’s not the kind of guy who loses his temper.”

DiGenova, who said he hasn’t discussed any of this with Barr, noted that this is his “impression” of events based on his own sources within DoJ and FBI.

The former federal prosecutor then noted that there is a “battle royale” taking place but not between Barr and Wray, per se, “although that is happening.” More accurately, “it is a fight between accountable government, between agencies that have resisted for years and have succeeded in not being accountable” to the American people or even Congress and the various White House administrations.

“They’ve met their match” in “an attorney general who not only is smart but who used to work at the CIA, who is a litigator, and who has subpoena power,” diGenova continued.

The CIA and various intelligence agencies, along with the FBI and its various counterintelligence divisions, “are literally at war with the president and his attorney general,” diGenova said. “This [scandal] is as big as it gets in a democracy.”

Clearly the past few presidents, at least — George W. Bush and Barack Obama — both utilized a very weaponized intelligence apparatus within the deep state for different purposes.

Bush spied on Americans via the NSA and CIA (as well as via our Five Eyes partners, no doubt), while claiming to do so on behalf of protecting the country from another terrorist attack — illegal, still, but semi-noble.

Obama, meanwhile, abused the system and spied on American citizens for no reason other than perpetuating one party’s political power.

Our governing institutions are corrupt. Our political culture Hopefully Hopefull, Trump and Barr are the remedies.

    I have said it from day one Wray is another Sessions and part of the swamp.

  2. Wray was one of the senior Justice Dept officials that nearly resigned in 2004, alongside then FBI Director Robert Mueller and Deputy Attorney General James Comey due to illegal surveillance techniques the Bush administration had put in place under the Terrorist Surveillance Program.

    He’s apart of the plot, no doubt.

  3. Wray has been a deceitful rat and he needs to be fired. He’s protecting the swamp critters and it’s obvious. There has to be ONE honest person in that organization who can be named interim head of the FBI.

  4. Wray is definitely part of the deep state, as proven in the days of Ashgroft. Amazing that the layers are so heavy, many.

    Barr and his bulldog “Bull” Durham are creating panic among the REAL guilty people. They’re panicking and will be turning on each other and their bosses to save their hides. Check the net for “the prisoner’s dilemma” logic game. … Good times are a’comin.’

    Wray is seditious swamp slime.

  9. I agree with Joseph diGenova 100%…….HE should be in the Trump Administration!

  10. Everyone seems to assume this coup against Trump was the first time Intelligence and law enforcement bureaucrats have abused the democratic process. I’m not so sure. As we all know, LBJ wire tapped Goldwater didn’t he? He used the FBI to do it didn’t he? There are other examples and then we have strong theories about the CIA’s involvement in the JFK assassination, n’est pass? Robert Kennedy, Martin Luther King, we simply don’t know what we don’t know. Above mentions Bush, whew!

    And now we have this catastrophic fail under Obama, which began in 2012 and not in 2016. How we ask, did it ever go so far? How did such callous and casual, career level, bureaucratic incompetence in conjunction with Presidential authority contemplate such horrendous crimes against our republic?

    It seems only natural to assume a casual familiarity would develop as a steady progression of bureaucratic transgressions led to a rather routine abuse of power in the self serving desire of subordinates to accommodate superiors. Careers are either advanced, or dead ended through such creative abilities to accommodation. Soon others read the messaging and an easy comfort with self serving nefarious activity is normalized.

    It is generally accepted J Edgar Hoover was completely unaccountable. When, or which Administration since then has held any FBI Director, or CIA Director accountable? Again, we simply don’t know what we don’t know, but it’s especially easy to imagine one hand washing the other, with presidents benefiting and looking the other way, but when it comes to the Chicago styled, Democratic politics of an anti American, Obama Administration and a corrupt Hillary, well Katie bar the door.

    When the Director of the FBI offers a concept of “Higher honor” as an explanation for sedition, we begin to see the extent of a self reinforcement mechanism in the truly delusional. “Too tall” Comey actually began to believe he was immune to accountability for his criminal wrong doings and even for his treasonous activities by virtue of his Captain America persona, public demeanor and calm, confident composure. But years of corrupt, comfortable insularity had made not only he, but his entire team of executive administrators incompetent and sloppy and cynically now, that was perhaps their biggest crime.

    So what was Mueller’s investigation really about once he quickly evaluated there was no Russian collusion? Of course he was on a 2 year, $35 million dollar witch hunt badgering mostly innocent people for crimes that had nothing to do with Russian collusion hoping to unearth something, anything that could be used to bludgeon the President. Simultaneously, Mueller and his team were also sanitizing paper trails, evaluating culpability with an eye to constructing alibis as they methodically walked the hat back, destroying whatever evidence they could. Remember Mueller hand carried Hillary’s uranium one samples. He was always part of the team. Mueller was never meant to be, nor has he ever functioned as an honest broker. Anyone who thinks so is a fool.

    Donald Trump may well be America’s very last Popeye. No longer fashionable, he simply is what he is and thank God. How grateful we are to have him. But with Attorney General William Barr now lies our republic’s only hope for a new lease on liberty. Democracy’s entire rationale for existence depends upon its capacity for accountability.

    Truth be told, the people are rather dismal at self government. As a rule, they make a real mishmash of it, but they alone are capable of holding the powerful elites to any standard of accountability. Tangle footed and clumsy, mostly ignorant, democracy is what holds the promise of learning from our mistakes. It’s also the last word for accountability. Trump has chosen Barr and now everything depends on him.

    Why can’t we get Hillary Clinton’s emails from the NSA data base?

      The white hats have it all…NSA and Wiener’s laptop…and probably other sources…

    PLEASE, DemocRats, impeach Trump. I beg you to pursue this suicidal mission,. 72% of Americans don’t want this, so PLEASE insure your defeat in November 2020 by an insane mission to impeach. I beg you! Please die the slow death of a Party unwanted by Americans. We hate you. Go away! Impeach !!!! NOW!!!!

  13. I wouldn’t hold our collective breath. I’ve been hearing this for two years. Nothing gonna happen. Absolutely nothing.

  14. It sounds like he needs to have some heads rolling in order to find out who the treasonous Deep State actors. Start with Wray. In the meantime, he can just go around Wray and speak directly to Wray’s subordinates. Put them under oath and set up perjury traps. When the traitors are caught in the traps, force them to sing or compose against the other traitors. These are tactics used by these traitors against others. It is only right that their tactics are used against them.

  15. I agree with Jon Jones. Use the lefts tactics. Playing a child’s game against the evil ones is foolishness. Get your big boy pants on and move against Wray.
    Rosenstein will fold or self-destruct.

    I suspect that the DOJ players…Sessions, Huber, Barr, Durham and others have been playing a shell game INTENTIONALLY to keep the deep state criminal subjects of their investigations (Not just Dems but many others in Government, media, intel community, alphabet agencies, private contractors, big corporate, military et. al.) off balance and hard pressed to intimidate, meddle with and subvert their work. The trap is being set. Sessions, with his planned recusal, started the “rope a dope” strategy (learned from Mohammed Ali boxing strategy) to let the adversaries wear themselves out and expend all their best shots…(including wet works attempts)…in other words, give ‘em enough rope to hang themselves…which they have done nicely for over 2 years…RR and Mueller were their champions and completely failed…now it’s time for “Ali” to come out swinging and lower the boom for the complete knock out of the “deep state cabal”. Trump’s unlikely removal will not stop it. The die is cast. The Obamas, and the Clintons…and their ilk…are like the Nazis in the Berlin bunker.

    • Every premise depends on Barr’s personal honesty. Has he reformed from NWO background?
      So far not a single indictment. We’ve had 2-1/2 years of Trump TALK and NO border/deportation action. He is safe. We are not.

Have something to say?
