It’s all a left-wing conspiracy. From the article:
President Trump hired the longtime Washington lawyer Joseph E. diGenova on Monday, adding an aggressive voice to his legal team who has pushed the theory on television that the F.B.I. and Justice Department framed Mr. Trump.
DiGenova’s history includes a January interview with FIIX News’ Tucker Carlson — no surprise there. He explained that he’d gleaned from FBI agent Peter Strozk’s released text messages that:
…as we have said from the beginning, that there was a brazen plot to illegally exonerate Hillary Clinton and, if she didn’t win the election, to then frame Donald Trump with a falsely created crime.
Everything we have seen from these texts, and from all the facts developing, shows that the FBI and senior DOJ officials conspired to violate the law, and deny Donald Trump his civil rights.
Mueller dismissed Stzrok from his investigative team last summer for having shared texts critical of Candidate Trump with Lisa Page, another agent with whom he was romantically involved.
The motive would be that they didn’t like Donald Trump, they didn’t think that he was fit to be president, and they were going to do everything within their power to exonerate Hillary Clinton, and if she lost to frame Donald Trump with a false crime, because they didn’t think he should be president.
More on his connections frorm the NYT:
Mr. diGenova is law partners with his wife, Victoria Toensing. Ms. Toensing has also represented Sam Clovis, the former Trump campaign co-chairman, and Erik Prince, the founder of the security contractor Blackwater and an informal adviser to Mr. Trump. Mr. Prince attended a meeting in January 2017 with a Russian investor in the Seychelles that the special counsel is investigating.
All one big, happy fmaily, aren’t they?
Then there’s this tidbit:
Ms. Toensing also represents Mark Corallo, the former spokesman for the Trump legal team who has accused one of the president’s advisers of potentially planning to obstruct justice with a statement related to a 2016 meeting between Donald Trump Jr. and a Russian lawyer who supposedly had damaging information Hillary Clinton.
So he’s married to the attorney representing the guy who blew the whistle on Hope Hicks:
Mr. Corallo planned to tell investigators that Ms. Hicks said during the call that emails written by Donald Trump Jr. before the Trump Tower meeting — in which the younger Mr. Trump said he was eager to receive political dirt about Mrs. Clinton from the Russians — “will never get out.” That left Mr. Corallo with concerns that Ms. Hicks could be contemplating obstructing justice, the people said.
Those would be Mueller’s investigators, BTW.
No conflict of interest in the diGenova/Toensing relationship. No siree!
