DiGenova: Hillary Cannot be the Nominee
Posted by Staff

On today’s program, Joe DiGenova, former Republican U.S. attorney, addressed the FBI’s ongoing investigation of Hillary Clinton. On New Year’s Eve, another 5,500 pages of Clinton’s emails were released; of these emails, 275 included classified information, bringing the total number of classified emails to 1,274. DiGenova noted this total does not include the emails the FBI is recovering from the Secretary’s hard drive, meaning the actual total could be drastically higher. Though the investigation continues to unfold, DiGenova says the Bureau already "has so much information about criminal conduct by her and her staff that there is no way that they walk away from this."

As Clinton’s campaign progresses, DiGenova made a shocking prediction, claiming “Hillary will not make it to the finish line. She’s not going to be able to complete her campaign.” Following her interview with the FBI, which will be the final step of the Clinton investigation, DiGenova says the Bureau will make a recommendation that people be charged, leaving Attorney General Loretta Lynch with the “decision of a lifetime.” Though Ingraham expressed skepticism over Lynch’s willingness to indict Hillary Clinton, DiGenova pointed to “vitriol of an intense amount” developing among the intelligence community who he claims will “fight to the death” to ensure Hillary and her senior staff are adequately punished for their mishandling of classified information. If Lynch did, however, buries this case, DiGenova warned, the intelligence community “will never be able to charge another federal employee with the negligent handling of classified information.” And, DiGenova “the intelligence community will not stand for that. They will fight for indictment.” Further, he claims that, according to two sources in the FBI, “they are already in the process of gearing themselves to basically revolt if she refuses to bring charges.”

Later in the show, Bret Baier, host of Special Report on Fox News, reacted to DiGenova’s predictions, saying, “If that happens, that would be astonishing...it would be earth shattering, if what Joe was saying is true.”

Partial Transcript: [LISTEN]

DiGenova: Hillary Clinton’s going to have problems because of what’s in the emails, but also the classifications. 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 Hillary will not make it to the finish line. She’s not going to be able to complete her campaign. The criminal investigation must 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 the 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. They are now at over 1,200 classified emails. And, that’s just for the ones we know about from the State Department. That does not include the ones that the FBI is, in fact, recovering from her hard drives.  (1:08)

Ingraham: So, Hillary testifies on Capitol Hill and says she did not receive classified - did she say receive or send? You always have to parse the words with Hillary. That is false. Correct? (2:25)

DiGenova: She has actually said both things. And, she’s also then modified to say, none of them were marked classified. But, 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 her investigation. But, as a matter of fact, 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 are going to make a recommendation that people be charged and then Loretta Lynch is going to have the decision of a lifetime. (2:42 )

Ingraham: 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, green light an indictment of Hillary Clinton in an election year? (3:21)

DiGenova: 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 indictment and they are already in the process of gearing themselves to basically revolt if she refuses to bring charges. (3:34)

Ingraham: 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 will 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. (5:26)
