Gingrich on Trump's WH Bid: 'Lot More Fun Than a Yacht'

The other arguable hypocrisy of Gingrich's turn against a special counsel like Mueller is the passionate way he attacked those who criticized the last high-profile special counsel, Kenneth Starr. "I don't think that tweet helped him". "He is infuriated, and legitimately, in my judgment, by this whole Russian baloney". He said a reported investigation of Trump for obstruction of justice in the Russia probe - which Trump himself said is happening - is related to a failed attempt to prove election collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, which Gingrich called the "Russia Fantasy". [Former FBI Director James] Comey has said three times I didn't do anything with the Russians.

The former speaker tweeted Thursday that Mueller was 'clearly the tip of the deep state spear aimed at destroying or undermining and crippling the Trump presidency'.

The former Speaker went on to refer to then-Deputy Attorney General James Comey appointing U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald to investigate the unauthorized disclosure of the identity of a Central Intelligence Agency employee.

In the letter to Comey informing him of his dismissal, the president said he was acting on a recommendation from Rosenstein. After Gingrich blamed Clinton's email investigation as a reason to why she was not president, Whoopi outright denied that Comey found any wrongdoing in Clinton's email investigation.

Gingrich said that as president, Trump was well within his authority to fire the head of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Not long after Newt Gingrich accused Robert Mueller of being part of a "deep state" conspiracy, Joe Scarborough responded in a series of tweets. On December 19 at 1:56PM, Gingrich voted to impeach President Clinton for obstruction of justice.

"I think Trump sits there and says, 'let me get this straight". Nobody on Capitol Hill has any proof I did anything with the Russians. "'This would be a lot more fun than a yacht.' And I thought, 'He's going to go'".

"No", Gingrich said. "I think this whole game of recusal now is - this is a nightmare". I'm not a lawyer, but neither is Newt Gingrich (he holds a Ph.D.in European history), and if I can google some legal definitions, he should be able to as well.
