Some Bad News for Hillary Clinton
Joe DiGenova was US Attorney for DC, Staff counsel for various Senate committees, You can say he is pretty wired into the Washington DC scene. MR. DiGenova gave this interview to Laura Ingraham on her radio show.
Joseph E. diGenova, founding partner of the Washington, D.C. law firm of diGenova & Toensing, LLP represents individuals, corporations and other entities before the Federal courts, Congress, and U.S. cabinet departments and agencies on criminal, civil, administrative and investigative matters. In December 1992, he was appointed Independent Counsel in the Clinton Passport File Search matter. He was appointed Chairman of the Grievance Committee of the D.C. District Court in 1995 by the judges of that court. In 1997, he was named Special Counsel by the U.S. House of Representatives to probe the International Brotherhood of Teamsters. As a result of that assignment, he was appointed by the U.S. District Court, Southern District of New York, to sit on the Independent Review Board, which oversees the Teamsters pursuant to a 1989 Consent Decree. He is on that Board with former FBI and CIA Director William Webster and former U.S. Attorney General Benjamin Civiletti. In 2007, Mr. diGenova was retained by the New York State Senate to investigate then-Gov. Eliot Spitzer in the Troopergate matter.
Her biggest problem right now is the FBI. They’re not going away.
They have reached a critical mass in their investigation of the Secretary and all of her senior staff.
And, it’s going to come to a head, I would suggest, in the next sixty days.
And, I predict that Hillary will not make it to the finish line. She’s not going to be able to
complete her campaign.
This criminal investigation must, of necessity, focus on her and all the people around her.
And, if Jim Comey, the FBI director, is doing his job — which I expect him to do as an honorable man —
she cannot be the nominee of the Democratic Party.
She’s going to have to be charged with a crime. It’s going to be a very complex matter for the
Department of Justice, but they’re not going to be able to walk away from it.
She and her staff have committed numerous federal crimes involving negligent and improper
handling of classified information. They are now at over 1,200 classified emails, and those are
just for the ones we know about from the State Department. That doesn’t include the ones
that the FBI is, in fact, recovering from her hard drives.
She has definitely made false statements, under oath, both in interviews and on Capitol Hill.
She has not yet been interviewed by the FBI in their investigation. That will be the final step
in their investigation. The Bureau has so much information about criminal conduct by her and
her staff that there is no way that they walk away from this. They’re going to make a
recommendation that people be charged, and then Loretta Lynch is going to have the
decision of a lifetime.
Do you have confidence that Loretta Lynch, from what we saw with her handling of the
Baltimore riots and all that, is going to okay to green light an indictment of
Hillary Clinton in an election year?
I believe that the evidence that the FBI is compiling will be so compelling that unless she
agrees to the charges, there will be a massive revolt inside the FBI, which she will not be
able to survive as an Attorney General. It will be like Watergate. It will be unbelievable.
The evidence against the Clinton staff and the Secretary is so overwhelming at this point
that if, in fact, she chooses not to charge Hillary, they will never be able to charge another
federal employee with the negligent handling of classified information.
The intelligence community will not stand for that — they will fight for an indictment,
and they are already in the process of girding themselves to, basically, revolt against the
Attorney General if she refuses to bring charges. There is a massive breach between the
intelligence community, the military community, at the Department of State, and the
national security superstructure inside the intelligence community. There is vitriol of an
intense amount developing — you can hear it in your conversations with people in
the intelligence community.
They will fight to the death if the Attorney General attempts to bury this case.
It’s going to be very, very ugly for her. And it’s going to be an awful ending to the
Obama Administration, but one which they richly deserve.
