Schiff Memo Blocked Because DOJ & FBI Under "Criminal Investigation" Says Former Federal Prosecutor

A former Federal prosecutor claims that the Democratic response to the House Intel Committee's GOP-authored "FISA memo" was blocked on the recommendation of the FBI and DOJ because the agencies are conducting internal investigations into politically motivated malfeasance by specific individuals which the Schiff memo could compromise if released without redactions.


Joe DiGenova, a former Special Counsel who went after both the Teamsters and former NY Governer Elliot Spitzer, made the claim on a Monday interview with radio station WMAL.

DiGenova: “We’re going to see the [Democrat memo]. It will be heavily edited by the FBI and the Department of Justice and the CIA. The most important part of this story is that on Friday, February the 9th, Rod Rosenstein and Christopher Wray wrote a letter to the White House counsel Don McGahn that they could not agree to the publication of the Schiff memo because it contained national security and law enforcement concerns. It was actually the FBI and the Department of Justice says no [to releasing the memo]. The most important part of that letter is when it says… law enforcement concerns. What does that mean? It means, that there is a criminal investigation underway and release of some of the information in the memo by Mr. Schiff will affect that criminal investigation. I wonder who they are investigating? And the answer is pretty clear. They are investigating the people at the FBI and the DOJ who provided false information to the FISA court over a number of years, including, involving Carter Page.

As an aside, DiGenova's wife is attorney and former Reagan Justice Department official Victoria Toensing - who is representing former FBI mole William D. Campbell surrounding his Congressional testimony regarding bribes from Russian uranium executives routed to the Clinton Global Iniative

Last month we reported that DiGenova sat down with the Daily Caller, where he asserted that the Obama Administration's "brazen plot to exonerate Hillary Clinton" and "frame an incoming president with a false Russian conspiracy" was unraveling. 

The FBI used to spy on Russians. This time they spied on us. what this story is about - a brazen plot to exonerate Hillary Clinton from a clear violation of the law with regard to the way she handled classified information with her classified server. Absolutely a crime, absolutely a felony. It's about finding out why - as the Inspector General is doing at the department of justice - why Comey and the senior DOJ officials conducted a fake criminal investigation of Hillary ClintonFollowed none of the regular rules, gave her every break in the book, immunized all kinds of people, allowed the destruction of evidence, no grand jury, no subpoenas, no search warrant. That's not an investigation, that's a Potemkin village. It's a farce. -DC


DiGenova condemned the FBI for working so closely with the controversial Fusion GPS, a political hit squad paid by the DNC and Clinton campaign to create and spread the discredited Steele dossier about President Donald Trump. Without a justifiable law enforcement or national security reason, he says, the FBI “created false facts so that they could get surveillance warrants. Those are all crimes.” He adds, using official FISA-702 “queries” and surveillance was done “to create a false case against a candidate, and then a president.” -Daily Caller

During the interview, DiGenova held referenced what was until then a previously unreported and heavily redacted 99-page FISA court opinion from April, 2017, which "describes systematic and on-going violations of the law [by the FBI and their contractors using unauthorized disclosures of raw intelligence on Americans]. This is stunning stuff."

Im not so sure Hillary is untouchable anymore. Before she was protected by others via power, financial interest and others self preservation. Now that she has lost power that in turn destroyed her ability to produce any benefit for those with previous financial interest. The last protection she has, but definitely most motivating, is others self preservation. Fortunately, this is like dominoes.

Some important people that invested big bucks in her foundation and on her campaign, are not very happy with their return on their money. She is of little use to them and the Deep State now. She may be about to have a deadly bathroom accident because she knows too much. She had 28 killed, now that talent may be coming for her. I'm sure Bill will mourn publicly

Jury?  Uh, no.  

This isn't a parking ticket on Law and Order, dude-  doesn't work that way in this court.

Just settle down..... Disecting the biggest political/criminal conspiracy in the history of this country and building an iron-clad case takes time- there are NO shortcuts or do-overs-  they're re-writing history here;

Pay attention to what this prosecutor is saying here- it's a trial balloon.......

Wrong, not a trial balloon.  He merely explained that this is well underway.  Of course it doesn't happen overnight - we are all aware of that.  If you listen to his entire interview, he makes that clear - he states that this could well go on for a long, long time if that's what it takes.  And grand jury panels are likely being created.  Investigators and lawyers have been assigned to multiple criminal actions and leaks.  It will all seem fast and furious but the reality is this has been in motion for some time now.

Again, not a trial balloon - this does not require public approval.  When the IG report drops, an IC will be appointed and I won't at all be surprised to learn that it's DiGenova.  I can believe he's being prepped for that position now.  I know no one else having this strong a command of what's going on and who the players are.  How and why does he know so much?  Seems like an insider to me and he's not a government official.  My money's on him as IC.

The era of both Pure Evil War Criminal Treasonous Seditious Psychopath Crime Syndicate families of the Bush’s, Clinton’s, Obama’s their Criminal Agents, Operatives, NGO’s & Front Companies in the Highly Compartmentalized Levels of Intelligence from around the World GCHQ is mercifully coming to an end.


Their future can be summed up from this quote from “Poppy” Pure Evil War Criminal Treasonous Seditious Psychopath Bush Senior.


"If the people knew what we had done, they would chase us down the street and lynch us." George H.W. Bush to journalist Sarah McClendon

@ overbet,


You need to go all the way back to the days when governor Clinton allowed the CIA to run guns into Central America and sell drugs on the streets of America.  He gave them top cover they game him & Hillary a lifetime pass.  


In return, The American People received Tyrannical Lawlessness.


Bush Senior +Bill & Hillary Clinton + Bush Jr. (Cheany Handler) + Obama = CIA

It was fairly easy to see how life would play out when, within 72 hours of Trump's election, Gold/Sachs yanked the small amount of remaining funds that they had given to the Mezvinski kid for his "hedge fund." Within a week the fund was closed and with most of the $25 million gone (he had invested it in Greek bonds, ....seriously) G/S was publicly announcing that her foundation of support was made entirely of sand.  In the end, a final grasp for passion from the plebeians, emerged in the form of a book tour.
