Gingrich says Comey may be under investigation

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, a staunch supporter of President Donald Trump, on Sunday said he had "no idea" what Trump was trying to do with a tweet that appeared to confirm he is personally under federal investigation.

On Friday, in an appearance at the National Press Club, Newt Gingrich said it was impossible for the President of the United States to obstruct justice.

Gingrich speaks regularly with Trump and is promoting a new book on how to "understand" him. While speaker of the House, Gingrich voted in 1998 to impeach President Bill Clinton on charges of obstruction of justice and perjury.

"The left right now is engaged in the Salem witchcraft process of, 'We know somebody's evil, we know somebody's bad".

Trump added that the investigation was "the single greatest WITCH HUNT" in USA political history and is being led "by some very bad and conflicted people!" "I think Trump sits there and says, 'let me get this straight, I know I didn't do anything with the Russians".

"Frankly, I think the President should stop talking about it", Blunt said. He encouraged the audience to read Arthur Miller's "The Crucible", saying "that's the mentality of the left right now".

Gingrich, speaking on Fox News' "Outnumbered", offered his prayers to those injured and promptly lumped the violent incident in with what he called a broader trend coming from those opposed to President Donald Trump.

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. Nobody on Capitol Hill has any proof that I did anything with the Russians.

"All Americans, regardless of party, agree on the fundamental principle that no one is above the law", said Democratic Rep. Ted Lieu (D-Calif.) said on MSNBC on Friday.

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

Referring to his own wife, Callista, Gingrich added, "That's when Callista and I learned that a Trump candidacy was likely-and a Trump presidency was possible".

'His reputation is impeccable for honesty and integrity, ' Gingrich tweeted on May 17.

Not long after Newt Gingrich accused Robert Mueller of being part of a "deep state" conspiracy, Joe Scarborough responded in a series of tweets. "Media should now calm down".
