Meghan McCain Grills Comey on Tell-All Book: 'J. Edgar Hoover Is Rolling Over in His Grave'


Former federal prosecutor Joe diGenova said Wednesday that two standards of justice existed in the United States under James Comey: one for Hillary Clinton and another for President Donald Trump.

DiGenova, a former U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia, said that Clinton's standard of justice was "propounded by the Obama Justice Department and FBI," which was led by Comey when he was the FBI's director.

He said the other standard of justice was for the Trump campaign and administration, including former national security adviser Michael Flynn.

"The president is being framed. Gen. Flynn is being framed. And no matter what Mr. Comey says, the lying that he started has not ended and it continues to this day," diGenova said on "Hannity."

Flynn pleaded guilty to providing false statements to the FBI related to his conversations with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak during the presidential transition.

DiGenova said Comey is "destroying the institution of the FBI" for allowing former deputy director Andrew McCabe to lie multiple times under oath about the FBI's probe of the Clinton Foundation.

"Everyone in that FBI building is embarrassed from head to toe," diGenova said.

Comey defended McCabe's character Wednesday during an appearance on ABC's "The View" to promote his tell-all book, "A Higher Loyalty."

"I still believe Andrew McCabe is a good person, but the inspector general found that he lied, and there are severe consequences in the Justice Department for lying," he said.
