Lost in the recent global coronavirus pandemic is a "9-alarm fire" in the FBI, as an inspector general report is finding even further, massive FISA abuses, according to former federal prosecutor Joe diGenova on Newsmax TV.
"The FBI as an agency is in free fall – this is not your mother's FBI," diGenova told Wednesday's "The Howie Carr Show," calling out the "incompetence" of FBI Director Christopher Wray, who was President Donald Trump's replacement for fired FBI Director James Comey.
"The people in that building, with whom we speak regularly, are embarrassed by him," diGenova added of Wray. "They know what he is, he's a limousine cop."
Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz has pulled 700 FISA applications from October 2014 to September 2019 during an investigation. From those, per diGenova, a random sample of 29 warrants showed every one did not meet the standard requirements to warrant surveillance of American citizens, but all 29 were approved unwittingly by the FISA court.
An average of 20 errors were found per application, diGenova told host Howie Carr.
"This covers Christopher Wray, Mr. Smarty pants; Sugar Wray, as I call him, he's so sweet," diGenova said.
"This punk that runs the FBI: this continued under his tenure and he did absolutely nothing about it."
Wray's guidelines to curtail FISA abuse had not issued any condemnation for Comey, diGenova lamented.
"Sugar Wray is a disaster," DiGenova said. "He is going to continue to be a disaster until the president is re-elected and he can replace him. This is an embarrassment to federal law enforcement."
