Gowdy & Goodlatte Call for Special Counsel on FISA: Current Probe 'Has No Jurisdiction' Over 24 Witnesses

Former U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia Joe diGenova said Tuesday that key Obama administration officials ignored reports of a possible breach of Hillary Clinton's private email server in order to protect the 2016 presidential candidate.

DiGenova said that not only did FBI Agent Peter Strzok and then-Director of National Intelligence Jim Clapper ignore the possible hack, but that they did so "with the consent of the president (Obama)."

Tucker Carlson said technicians found discrepancies in metadata contained in the email server, which may indicate it was hacked or tampered with.

DiGenova said that when Clapper found out the server may have been compromised, he was required by law to do a "damage assessment" to ascertain whether hacking occurred.

The former prosecutor said Clapper did no such thing, and that such action may have provided cover for Strzok - who was working on the related FBI investigation - to decline to investigate further as well.

DiGenova also agreed with Reps. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) and Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) that a second special counsel is needed in order to properly investigate alleged FISA court abuses.
