Trump to Hire Lawyer Who Has Pushed Theory That Justice Dept. Framed the President
The New York Times ^ | March 19, 2018 | MAGGIE HABERMAN and MICHAEL S. SCHMIDT

MANCHESTER, N.H. — President Trump has decided to hire the longtime Washington lawyer Joseph E. diGenova, who has pushed the theory on television that Mr. Trump was framed by F.B.I. and Justice Department officials, to bolster his legal team, according to three people told of the decision.

Mr. diGenova is not expected to take a lead role but will instead serve as a more aggressive player on the president’s legal team. Mr. Trump broke over the weekend from the longstanding advice of some of his lawyers that he refrain from directly attacking the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, a sign of his growing unease with the investigation...

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,” he said on Fox News in January. He added, “Make no mistake about it: A group of F.B.I. and D.O.J. people were trying to frame Donald Trump of a falsely created crime.”

“Theory?”

Is that akin to the “theory” that the sun shows first in the East?

I don’t like it. I wanted AG Sessions to hire DiGenova and Tuensing to head up the independent special prosecutor tasked with weeding out the deep state at Justice and FBI....

Joe will be better than his current legal team. They are worthless.

All true. What is the problem here?

My first thought on seeing the headline was: “Do they expect him to hire a lawyer who thinks he’s a criminal?”

Whenever the Drive-By Media prints an unsourced rumor that is slanderous to Trump, it is presented as fact.

Any thing contrary is reported as a “theory.”

The Times’ Habermann just can’t help herself. Each line a comma separating the fact and the snarky interpretation.

"DiGenova is a great choice."

Absolutely. I was thoroughly impressed with their analysis during the Clinton scandals. Another person I thought did excellent work was David Schippers.
