Former U.S. attorney Joe diGenova told FNC's Tucker Carlson Thursday night that there was an effort to frame Trump and that high-level members of the FBI and Justice Department were involved, including former CIA Director John Brennan.
"We know that Hillary Clinton was illegally exonerated. We knew that a year ago," the former prosecutor said.
"We know that there was a substantial effort to frame the current president of the United States with crimes by infiltrating his campaign and then his administration with spies that the FBI had set upon them."
"We have learned that the crimes were committed by the FBI, senior members of the Department of Justice, John Brennan, Mr. [James] Clapper, Mr. [James] Comey and others associated with the Democratic Party," he continued. "And Donald Trump and his associates committed no crimes."
"Categorically and unequivocally, it has been proved that the FBI, in violation of all guidelines, all legislation — and I believe they committed crimes in doing so — purposely sent people into the Trump campaign to plant false information, then force that information to be forwarded back to CIA, and then funneled to the FBI, to be used as false information in FISA applications," he said.
"Everybody involved in that process, who knowingly participated, committed a crime," DiGenova concluded.
He explained that "criminal referrals have already been made."
"And I suggest that Mr. Brennan, who loves to make comments about the process, get himself a good lawyer not a good writer," DiGenova said.
