Former federal prosecutor Joe diGenova joined Laura Ingraham on her show the Ingraham Angle on Tuesday evening to talk about the recent move by Attorney General Bill Barr who appointed U.S. Attorney John Durham to look into how the Trump-Russia investigation started.
Joe diGenova slammed those involved with the origins of the Russia investigation and specifically mentioned that fired FBI director James Comey and former CIA chief John Brennan should lawyer up.
Joe diGenova: This is very serious business. For the first time I believe some of these guys are going to prison… Let me tell you something, Horowitz has already concluded that the final three FISAs were completely illegal. He’s now on the brink of finding that the first FISA was completely illegal. Durham has already used a grand jury in Connecticut. They’ve already gotten documents. He’s already talked to the intel people.
Laura Ingraham: How long has this been going on?
Joe diGenova: 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.
This wasn’t the first time that someone in the past week warned Comey and Brennan about potential legal jeopardy.
On Monday night, Trey Gowdy dropped a bomb on live TV and told congressional investigators to look into Comey’s and Brennan’s emails in December of 2016.
“So whoever’s investigating this, tell them to look for emails between Brennan and Comey in December 2016,” Gowdy said to Sean Hannity of Fox News, referring to Brennan and Comey.
Although Gowdy did not say exactly what was in these emails, the fact that he is coming forward and mentioning them speaks volumes. Gowdy also mentioned that the FBI say the author of the infamous Russia dossier, Christopher Steele, as an unreliable source.
“I think you’ll be surprised at whether or not they viewed Steele as being credible,” Gowdy also noted.
Check out what the Daily Caller reported:
Republicans have sought a slew of internal FBI documents related to Steele and the dossier. They’ve called on President Donald Trump to declassify portions of the fourth and final surveillance warrant against Page, as well as FBI interview notes with Bruce Ohr, the Justice Department official who served as Steele’s handler.
The FBI also prepared what’s called a Human Source Validation Report for Steele in November 2016, weeks after the FBI obtained its first spy warrant against Page.
The Justice Department’s inspector general is reportedly investigating whether Steele was a reliable source.
Gowdy went on to explain how the FBI held back important information in the FISA application used to spy on the Trump campaign.
“I can tell you it is even worse than what you described. It is what you described, in addition to the withholding of exculpatory information,” he said.
“They made no effort to corroborate the dossier until after it had been used in the application and a renewal. No effort. It’s not that they failed, it’s that they made no effort to do it.”
