Former U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia Joe diGenova ripped Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and said whatever punishment may be coming his way is warranted.

DiGenova said that Rosenstein signed the final FISA court renewal for a warrant to surveil a former Trump campaign associate, and that he did not read that final application -- but instead had others explain what was in it.

"Whether or not impeachment is the right way to go doesn't even matter anymore," diGenova said. "There's no doubt that Rod Rosenstein deserves everything that he's getting."

DiGenova said Rosenstein is responsible for the "crisis" President Trump is experiencing in dealing with Robert Mueller's Russia election-meddling probe.

"He should be ashamed of himself. He's getting precisely what he deserves," he said.

DiGenova added that he was "amazed" at Secretary of State Michael Pompeo's "performance" before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

But, diGenova ripped Director of National Intelligence Daniel Coats, saying that he criticized Trump in an interview and proverbially "kissed the feet" of interviewer Andrea Mitchell of NBC News.
