Newt Gingrich: Trump has a 'compulsion to counterattack'

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

Subtext: He's also selling a new book, audaciously titled, "Understanding Trump", released Tuesday, and newly the spouse of a Trump administration nominee - his wife Callista has been nominated to be the U.S. ambassador to the Vatican.

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'.

Gingrich's tweets marked a coming of full circle in an effort by some of Trump's most prominent allies to delegitimize the Mueller-led investigation.

The most prominent of those Trump backers was Gingrich, who tweeted Monday that Republicans were "delusional" if they thought Mueller would be fair.

"Robert Mueller is superb choice to be special counsel".

Granted, Starr was investigating a Democrat, Bill Clinton.

As Fiske's successor, Starr had no prosecutorial experience at all, but his partisan credentials were certainly in order: a former Republican judicial appointee and Justice Department official, active in the Virginia GOP and the Federalist Society, adviser to right-wing nonprofits and counsel to the tobacco industry and many other Republican-oriented corporations. His reputation is impeccable for honesty and integrity.

Trump Attorney: The President Is Not Under Investigation
Sekulow said his legal team had not received notice of any probe into Trump. Trump was being probed over whether he tried to obstruct justice.

"Very unsafe", he wrote, saying it's clear following the Post's story that Mueller is "the tip of the deep state spear aimed at destroying or at a minimum undermining and crippling the Trump presidency".

That was 19 years ago, to be sure.

He claimed he knew college students who said they had received death threats for saying they supported Trump, and also criticized comedian Kathy Griffin - who was roundly chastised for posing in a photograph holding a bloodied Trump head - and a NY production of the Shakespeare play Julius Caesar, which features a Trump-like Caesar.

It is not just in the matter of the special counsel that Gingrich has let his opinion be heard.

Such tweets aren't helping, Gingrich said.

"Newt, whatever you think you're getting in return for obsequiously sliming an American hero, I guarantee you it's not worth it", Joe Scarborough went on to write, while adding, "Stop".

"We start over here on Russian Federation, well they don't have anything on Russian Federation, but maybe there was obstruction, we may not get anything on obstruction, but maybe there's going to be perjury. This intensity has been building since election night".
