Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich responded to the shooting at a Republican baseball practice on Wednesday by saying it was “part of a pattern” of behavior on the left.
Of course, it’s also possible that Trump did threaten Comey by making it clear that Comey’s job depended on the termination of the Flynn investigation.
Trump could be looking at an obstruction of justice charge in the future.
Conspiracy theorist and loyal Donald Trump supporter Newt Gingrich is now admitting that the Russian Federation scandal will likely result in people in Trump’s circle – maybe even Trump himself – going to jail.
“I think Trump sits there and says, ‘let me get this straight”.
“I think this whole game of recusal now, this is a nightmare”, Gingrich said.
Comey helped prompt the appointment of a special counsel that’s become a legal “nightmare” that’s “trying to block the Trump presidency'”.
Meanwhile, Democrats have ratcheted up their calls for impeachment proceedings in light of reports that Trump was considering firing Mueller, and attacking Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein on his Twitter feed.
“It horrifies liberals. I think he will be there for 8 years”. As a disgraced politician who left office under an ethical cloud, following a decade spent debasing American discourse, Gingrich has no standing to criticize Mueller, a decorated Vietnam veteran who enjoys broad bipartisan esteem after a lifetime devoted to public service.
Gingrich said he has cautioned many in the Trump administration about the seriousness of the current investigations. Nobody on Capitol Hill has any proof that I did anything with the Russians.
So, the fantasy that didn’t occur is now being replaced by – by the way, technically, the president of the United States can not obstruct justice.
