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

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich on Sunday slammed special counsel Robert Mueller's hiring of 13 more lawyers to expand his Russian Federation probe, suggesting they're Democratic donors whose bias will poison the investigation.

During an interview on CNN's "State of the Union", Jay Sekulow, a member of Trump's legal team, insisted the president "is not under investigation", despite the Washington Post's anonymously sourced allegations and Trump's Friday tweet in which he said, "I am being investigated for firing the FBI Director by the man who told me to fire the FBI Director!" "What you have lived through for 2 1/2 years is the most systematic, deliberate obstruction of justice, coverup and effort to avoid the truth we have ever seen in American history, and the time has come to say to the president, 'Quit undermining the law in the United States. If he wants to fire the Federal Bureau of Investigation director, all he's got to do is fire him".

Twitter users quickly pointed out the irony of Gingrich's assertions, given his role in President Clinton's impeachment by the House. After all, he was speaker when the House impeached Bill Clinton for, among other things, obstruction of justice.

Now, with a Republican in power, Gingrich has changed his tune. The left right now is engaged in the Salem witchcraft process.

"I think the President, I know because we've talked about it". "Maybe it's you, whoever you are, '" Gingrich said.

Gingrich, in his reference to the "deep state", suggests that there is an orchestrated conspiracy against the president from within the established government, whereby career government employees hostile to the administration are actively involved in ridding Washington of President Trump. Gingrich was referring to a tweet by Trump on Friday that appeared to confirm that the president is under investigation in the Russian Federation probe.

"Everybody on the left has been walking around town chanting, 'watch for the Russian connection, watch for the Russian connection, look for the collusion, '" Gingrich said.

'Not credible' for May's Government to negotiate Brexit, says Sturgeon
In the letter, she states: "During the election you sought a mandate for your proposals to leave the European single market".

'Turns out, even Dianne Feinstein, the ranking Democrat on the (Senate) intelligence committee, says there is zero evidence of collusion.

So now the newest one is: Ah.

"I think he's furious", Gingrich said of the president.

'I keep telling everybody at the White House, this is not like NY real estate law, this is criminal law, ' he said.

"The brazen redefinition of Mueller's task tells you how arrogant the deep state is and how confident it is it can get away with anything", he added.

House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA), a congressional aide, and two Capitol Police officers were shot and wounded as they practiced for the Congressional Baseball Game, which is set for Thursday.

Speaking on Fox News' "Outnumbered", Gingrich said, "It's part of a pattern".
