A week ago, on Jan. 5, 2016, former federal prosecutor Joseph DiGenova said some stunning things on the Laura Ingraham radio show:
- Hillary Clinton could be indicted in the next 60 days.
- She will not complete her presidential campaign and will not be Democratic Party’s nominee.
- There will be massive revolt inside the FBI if Attorney General Loretta Lynch refuses to charge Hillary.
See DCG’s post on this here.
DiGenova is a former federal prosecutor, U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia, who led the prosecution of Israeli spy Jonathan Pollard, and was the Principal Assistant U.S. Attorney during the prosecution of attempted Reagan assassin, John W. Hinckley. In December 1992, he was appointed Independent Counsel in the Clinton Passport File Search matter. In 2007, Mr. diGenova was retained by the New York State Senate to investigate then-Gov. Eliot Spitzer in the Troopergate matter.
Here’s the transcript of what DiGenova said on Laura Ingraham Show:
“[Hillary Clinton’s] biggest problem right now is the FBI [investigation into her emails on an unsecured network], they’re not going away. They have reached a critical mass in their investigation of the Secretary [of State Hillary] and all of her senior staff, and it’s going to come to a head, I would suggest, in the next 60 days.
And I predict Hillary will not make it to the finish line. She’s not gonna be able to complete her campaign. This criminal investigation must, out of necessity, focus on her and all the people around her. And if [FBI Director] Jim Comey 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 the negligent and improper handling of classified information. There are now over 1,200 classified emails, and that’s 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 [Hillary] has not yet been interviewed by the FBI in their investigations. That will be the final step in their investigations. 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 gonna make a recommendation that people be charged, and then [Attorney General] Loretta Lynch is going to have a decision of a lifetime.
I believe that the evidence that the FBI is compiling will be so compelling that unless she [Lynch] 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 [Hillary] is so overwhelming at this point that if in fact she [Lynch] 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 gearing themselves to basically revolt against the attorney general if she [Lynch] refuses to bring charges.
There is a massive breach between the intelligence community, the military community at the Department 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.”
