Former U.S. Attorney DiGenova said Democrats want any excuse to "scream and yell" and to impeach Trump. In an interview Tuesday night with FNC's Tucker Carlson, DiGenova said in "their bizarre brains," Democrats believe they did win in 2016 and this is payback. He said we are watching a political party devolve all because they want power.
"They are scrambling for a theme and a narrative," DiGenova said of Democrats. "They have gone everywhere from Russian hoax to Russian collusion and now they've come to this. And you may note today they said they wanted to see the transcript. And when it was announced that the transcript was going to be put out tomorrow, they said that really doesn't matter. We want to know about the complaint from the so-called whistleblower who by the way doesn't know anything about the call. He or she is completely anonymous and it's at this point serves no useful purpose other than to help them scream and yell."
"This is about power," DiGenova continued. "Democrats want to control the House, the Senate and the presidency. They think they should have won the 2016 election. They think in their bizarre brains that they did because she got more popular votes. They don't like the electoral college. They don't like due process. They don't like a lot of things in our constitution which is why they always want to change it."
"This is lunacy," he declared. "You are watching a great political party, historically the Democratic party, devolve into a bunch of screwballs because they want all the power. That speech today by Pelosi was an embarrassment for a Speaker of the House because it was mostly lies and mostly made up."
DiGenova weighs in on FOX News legal analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano:
TUCKER CARLSON, FOX NEWS HOST: Now, I heard today in fact on our air I heard Judge Andrew Napolitano say what the president has admitted to doing is a crime. Is it a crime? You're a former federal prosecutor.
JOE DIGENOVA: Well, I think Judge Napolitano is a fool. And I think what he said today is foolish. No, it is not a crime. Let me underscore emphatically that nothing that the president said on that call or what we think he said on that call constitutes a crime. And even if he had said you're not going to get the money it would not be a crime.
I was watching Nancy Pelosi today as she struggled to keep her dentures in her mouth giving this statement, called this an official impeachment inquiry. It is not. The only way you can have an official impeachment inquiry is by a resolution being passed on the floor of the House calling for an impeachment inquiry and authorizing an investigation. That has not occurred. What she did today was a head fake to placate the nuts on her left.
