Audio of Renk’s 10-31 Interview with Former US Attorney Joe DiGenova
Today I interviewed former US Attorney Joe DiGenova concerning the October 28th FBI letter from the Director of the FBI James Comey to congressional members of both parties in which he stated he wanted to reopen the investigation of the Clinton email scandal and the corruption in some of the highest levels of government in the Department of Justice.
Over the weekend Mr. DiGenova was asked whether the increasingly loud drumbeat of leaks coming from within the FBI were possibly a factor in Comey’s decision to send the letter to Congress that started the latest controversy, Mr. DiGenova stated the following:
Well, he didn’t have any choice. He had to send the letter once he was confronted with the evidence of the New York investigation. If he hadn’t sent the letter, there would have been leaks out of New York and he would have been embarrassed. So, he sent the letter because he didn’t have any choice and it’s as simple as that. I mean, they were gonna leak it, and he knew it.
