Former U.S. Attorney Joe DiGenova does not believe any indictments will come out of the investigations of the Clinton Foundation and the private email server of Hillary Clinton.

“There isn’t going to be an indictment because Loretta Lynch, [Sally] Yates and Leslie Caldwell will not permit it. That’s why we are going to have the greatest political crisis in history after this election no matter who wins. It will be worse if she wins, but these people at the Justice Department have been politically corrupt in the department,” DiGenova told The Daily Caller late last week.

According to The Wall Street Journal, the FBI has been investigating the Clinton Foundation since the beginning of the year and using Peter Schweizer’s book, “Clinton Cash,” as a guide to help them sort out the numerous financial dealings among the Foundation, former President Bill Clinton, and Hillary Clinton’s policy pushes as senator and secretary of state that appeared to benefit specific foreign governments.

DiGenova explained, “There isn’t going to be an indictment no matter what Comey says and no matter what the FBI agents say. [The Justice Department] will not permit it. We now have the most politically corrupt Justice Department in the last 100 years.”

FBI Director James Comey announced in a letter to Congress over one week ago, following a new mass of emails potentially related to the Clinton investigation that appeared on the co-owned laptop of Clinton staffer Huma Abedin and estranged husband Anthony Weiner, that the bureau would also take a second look at the Clinton email server.

The letter was sent four months after suggesting the DOJ should not pursue an indictment of Clinton.

DiGenova, who has bureau sources close to the FBI investigation, named Attorney General Loretta Lynch, Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, Assistant Attorney General Peter Kadzick, Assistant Attorney General John P. Carlin, and Assistant Attorney General Leslie Caldwell as senior level staff at DOJ have who have “done something that they are going to regret.”

DiGenova was the first to say the FBI never destroyed the laptops belonging to Clinton aides Heather Samuelson and Cheryl Mills in an agreed immunity deal because agents tasked to do so refused the order.

“This is nonsensical that the Department of Justice would agree to the destruction of evidence. I know of no such thing. That alone is grounds for removal of every single person at the top of the Justice Department and any lawyer who agreed to that arrangement with (Clinton attorney) David Kendall and the lawyers representing Cheryl mills and Heather Samuelson.”
