The politically-motivated witch hunt for President Trump is a direct attack on We the People. We elected Trump to exercise our will.
Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich warned that the Mueller investigation will only end with someone in prison. “They’re going to get somebody. I don’t think they’re going to get the president, but they’re going to get somebody, and they’re going to get him for something. And they’re probably going to go to jail.” (via Washington Examiner)
Gingrich made the comment while appearing on Sean Hannity’s show Friday night. Gingrich explained that, with so many high-profile lawyers involved, it can only end with a scalp.
Newt Gingrich is a strong supporter of President Trump, and was an early candidate to serve as Trump’s running mate.
Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein appointed Robert Mueller to lead the investigation into Russian interference into the 2016 presidential election.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions was forced to recuse himself from the investigation because of his connection to Donald Trump’s presidential campaign. Rosenstein and Mueller have full control over the probe.
However, since his appointment, Mueller has pursued his investigation aggressively. It’s morphing from a probe into Russian interference into a witch hunt for President Trump.
The scope of the investigation grows every day. Mueller recently hired 13 high-profile attorneys to investigate matters related to President Trump. Mueller plans to hire even more.
“This is like watching an old-fashioned Western movie,” said Gingrich, describing the investigation. “This is an Indian hunting party. They’re out looking for a couple scouts, and they’re not going to go home until they get some.” Mueller’s hunting party would be embarrassed if they don’t land a major arrest.
Mueller’s investigation got off to a rocky start. Multiple illegal leaks have already taken place, indicating that Mueller either cannot control his investigation — or does not want to. Critics have also questioned Mueller’s friendship with former FBI Director, James Comey.
This investigative witch hunt was exactly what James Comey had in mind when he leaked classified memos to the press, alleging obstruction of justice. Comey wanted a special prosecutor, and was pleased when his old friend, Mueller, was appointed.
Gingrich has referred to Mueller as the spear of the deep state — a man obsessed with dismantling the Trump presidency from inside. He cannot be allowed to continue.
