Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich is not known for mincing any of his words. While appearing on the popular Fox News show “Hannity,” Gingrich said that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation in Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election and possible collusion from the Trump administration was a “Trump Destruction Project.”
The Mueller team on Tuesday released a memo that stated Gen. Michael Flynn provided “substantial” help to investigators.
In the heavily redacted memo, Mueller’s office recommended little or no prison time for Flynn. He is a retired three-star Army general and President Trump’s former National Security Adviser.
Gingrich also said on the Fox News show that the special counsel and his team are “throwing the kitchen sink” at anyone connected with the president.
“You basically threaten somebody and say, ‘I’m gonna bankrupt you, I’m gonna put your son in jail, I want to charge you with so many different crimes you’ll never get out from under it. Now would you like to talk?,'” he said.
Newt Gingrich said that Mueller’s tactics don’t have anything to do with truth or justice.
“This was one of the most extraordinary efforts to undo the will of the American people by an established bureaucracy and its establishment friends.”
Mueller’s prosecutors said Flynn had met with investigators 19 times and provided “substantial” help to investigators about “several ongoing investigations.”
Hannity referenced one news source which said that emails between the FBI and Justice Department could provide “damning evidence of FISA abuses.”
“How can they get away with that abuse of power?” Hannity asked.
Gingrich replied that both entities are “insiders” and that they never thought the emails would come out of the dark because they banked on a Clinton presidential victory in 2016.
“The fact is, this is a clear-cut drama,” he said.
