Newt Gingrich on Tuesday questioned the ongoing investigation into Russia’s meddling in the 2016 presidential election by special counsel Robert Mueller because most of his lawyers have donated to Democrats.
The former House Speaker also criticized Mueller for not bringing in any pro-Trump attorneys on his team.
In an interview with CBS This Morning, Gingrich said, “He apparently couldn’t find a single pro-Trump attorney to hire, and I just think that’s a rigged game, and I think that it’s a mistake to pretend this is going to be some neutral investigation.”
The former lawmaker from Georgia also urged Congress to step in to remove Mueller because the testimony of former FBI director James cannot be trusted.
“I think Congress should now intervene and they should abolish the independent counsel… It’s very clear that Comey hates Trump.”
Trump’s friend and Newsmax CEO Chris Ruddy said during an interview with PBS NewsHour host Judy Woodruff that the president was considering firing the special counsel.
100% Fed Up reports:
Newt Gingrich is dead on with his commentary on Comey and leaking. Comey created Mueller! The bigger problem is that now Mueller has hired four lawyers who are all Clinton donors! Holy smokes! Do you think this is a set up or should President Trump follow through with the investigation?
