Newt Gingrich Goes on a Tear Against Mueller: ‘Actively Trying to Destroy’ Trump


Newt Gingrich appeared with Sean Hannity tonight and went on a tear against special counsel Robert Mueller for, as he put it, trying to “destroy” President Donald Trump.

Both Hannity and Gingrich were set off by the Michael Flynn sentencing memo that became public last night. Hannity repeatedly expressed how offended he is that Mueller is going after someone with Flynn’s record for a “process crime.”

Gingrich told him, “Mueller is not involved in a investigation. Mueller has a Trump destruction project. He brought on a team, all of them dedicated to destroying Trump. They have done everything they could to destroy Trump.”

He remarked that the Mueller investigation will be looked back on by historians as “one of the most extraordinary efforts to undo the will of the American people by an established bureaucracy and its establishment friends that we’ve seen in all of American history.”

After Hannity brought up a piece by The Hill’s John Solomon on an FBI email chain reportedly showing FISA abuse, Gingrich said, “You had the director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation actively trying to destroy a presidential candidate. You have the former head of the FBI, Bob Mueller, actively trying to destroy the President of the United States. And I know it’s frustrating but the fact is, this is a clear cut drama. They hate him, they want to destroy him, it has nothing to do with the truth and nothing to do with the law.”
