Gingrich: Opponents Entangling Trump in 'Legalistic Nightmare'


Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich tussled with Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg on "The View", with the hosts repeatedly calling President Trump a liar. Scarborough posted several tweets of his own, condemning Gingrich for his blatant suggestion that Mueller was in some way involved in a shadowy conspiracy against President Trump. "I mean you go down the list, and we've been here before", Gingrich said. "I don't think that tweet helped him".

Gingrich on Friday said he has warned the president and Trump's aides of just how serious the current investigations are.

In recent weeks, the scandal has involved the recent firing of James Comey as head of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, who headed up testifying in front of Congress last week.

French elections: Macron's party buoyant but turnout slumps
Mr Macron's party, En Marche - which was set up a year ago - received thirty-two per cent of the vote in the first round poll. She hopes to be a strong opposition force, but her party is only projected to hold about a dozen seats.


'Technically, the President of the United States can not obstruct justice, ' Gingrich said on Friday at an event in Washington.

Gingrich reversed course from a month ago, when he tweeted praise of Mueller, calling him "a superb choice" to head the Russian Federation investigation. "And if President Trump were to fire Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein, and then [get] special counsel Mueller fired, I believe Congress would begin impeachment proceedings". "This is an Indian hunting party", the former Speaker of House and failed presidential candidate said.

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. So now the newest one is, 'ah, but there was obstruction of justice over the collusion.' So, the fantasy that didn't occur is now being replaced with - well, technically, the president of the United States can not obstruct justice.

Tim Farron gives all his MPs a job in his frontbench team
Tim Farron stepped down as the Lib Dem leader earlier this week, after accepting the blame for the party's poor performance. We had a hard election in 2015, so any ideas that we would go back to 50 MPs in 2017 was wishful thinking.


"I think the President should get on the work that is so important that he do and at this point let this investigation run its course". Comey has said three times I didn't do anything with the Russians.

"No", Gingrich said. "I think this whole game of recusal now is - this is a nightmare". Nobody on Capitol Hill has any proof that I did anything with the Russians.

Gingrich has been one of Trump's most vocal supporters. "And now I get an independent counsel who is going to mess up at least the next year at a minimum.' And who, by the way, you'll notice is expanding his charge", Gingrich said.

Abysmal India come crashing down against Pakistan in ICC Champions Trophy final
Remember how the cricket world thought the key period in the contest would be the middle overs in India's innings. Soon, Imad Wasim (25) also joined Hafeez and attacked Indian bowlers to post a healthy total.
