Gingrich says Comey may be under investigation

Francis Olson | 19 June, 2017, 13:44

"Well, I think it partly depends on the leadership", Gingrich said. "I know I didn't do anything with the Russians, '" he said.

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. Nobody on Capitol Hill has any proof I did anything with the Russians. There was obstruction of justice about the collusion. In any case, the argument that Trump's actions don't amount to obstruction in no way requires Gingrich's argument that no president could ever commit obstruction. "Now they're talking about going and looking at financial files, if you believe the leak". While her nomination was not officially confirmed on Friday, Trump loyalist Lynne Patton is reportedly the top choice of Ben Carson, President Trump's head of public housing.

"'By the way, I know you said I needed to spend eighty million but I've only spent thirty million".

"I think the President is pretty confident that this is all going to come out in the wash and ultimately, he's still going to be president and this stuff is going to go away", said Speaker Gingrich. I think that it will be interesting to watch.

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee, dismissed Gingrich's concerns about Mueller and the lawyers he has been appointing to the probe who have donated to Democratic candidates over the years.

Around 70 people are missing, according to Britain's Press Association, and identification of the victims is proving very hard . Meanwhile, dozens of people erupted into Kensington and Chelsea town hall to protest the lack of response following the fire.

The other arguable hypocrisy of Gingrich's turn against a special counsel like Mueller is the passionate way he attacked those who criticized the last high-profile special counsel, Kenneth Starr.

Gingrich said he has cautioned many in the Trump administration about the seriousness of the current investigations.

"He is infuriated, and legitimately, in my judgment, by this whole Russian bologna", Gingrich said.

After stating his shock that the president has anyone at all supporting him given the "endless barrage" of negative, hostile press surrounding him from the day he first announced he was running for office, Gingrich quoted a Harvard study that found a shocking but not surprising 93 percent of media coverage of President Trump was negative. "As James Comey said in his testimony, that the president was not the target of an investigation, on three different occasions".
