Former U.S. Attorney and Special Counsel Joe diGenova said that he believes the Obama official at the core of the fraudulent Russia-Trump collusion conspiracy was John Brennan, the CIA director 2013-2017. DiGenova named several other people and added, "I now believe that some of these guys are going to prison."
DiGenova made his remarks on Tuesday's The Ingraham Angle. On Monday, it had been announced that Attorney General William Barr had assigned federal prosecutor John H. Durham to investigate the origins of the Russia collusion tale and the allegedly improper actions by some top FBI officials.
"James Comey, [John] Brennan and [James] Clapper have said to themselves which one of us is going to pay the Barr bill," said diGenova on May 14. "The Barr bill is coming due."
"And [John] Durham's appointment means that the already occurred meetings between the attorney general, the CIA director, and the director of National Intelligence have now focused on a laser that the core of this conspiracy began with John Brennan and ends with John Brennan in London and D.C. and the Democratic National Committee," said diGenova.
"This is very serious business and for the first time, I now believe that some of these guys are going to go to prison," he said.
In the Obama administration and during its last year, election year 2016, James Comey was the FBI director, John Brennan headed the CIA, and James Clapper was the director of National Intelligence.
Although the New York Times reported on U.S. Attorney John Durham's assignment on Monday, according to diGenova, Durham has been investigating the FBI for several months.
"Durham has already used a grand jury in Connecticut," diGenova told Ingraham. "They've already gotten documents. He's already talked to the Intel people. Durham has been working for a couple of months. So, the bottom line is this, this is now big time."
"This is where Brennan needs five lawyers," said diGenova. "Comey needs five lawyers."
DiGenova also said that Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz, who is completing a report on former FBI Director James Comey, "has already concluded that the final three FISA's were completely illegal. He's now on the brink of finding that the first FISA was completely illegal."
During the FBI's surveillance of people in the Trump 2016 campaign, the agency reportedly went before the secretive FISA court to get permission to spy on the campaign. FISA refers to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, which was established to give law enforcement the authority to surveil and spy on foreign entities considered a threat to the United States.
