Joseph Egidio diGenova, known as Joe diGenova (born February 22, 1945),[1] with his wife, Victoria Ann Long Toensing (born 1941), is a high-profile attorney in Washington, D.C. He is a former United States Attorney for the District of Columbia; she was deputy assistant attorney general in the criminal division of the United States Department of Justice in the Ronald W. Reagan administration.

DiGenova and Toensing were scheduled in March 2018 to join the legal team of U.S. President Donald Trump but were disqualified on grounds of conflicts of interest.[2] DiGenova in January endorsed the claim that a secret group of Federal Bureau of Investigation agents devised the investigation of Russian collusion with the Trump campaign in the 2016 presidential election to keep Trump from becoming president: “There was a brazen illegal plot to 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.[3]

DiGenova and Toensing reside in Chevy Chase, Maryland,[1] and formerly lived in the District of Columbia and Fenwick Island and several other locations in his native Delaware.[4]
